This is an extensive fairgrounds area. Our campsite was simply an open grass field with water and power poles. Staff were friendly. Our water faucet stem had such a leak it would have flooded our site if left on overnight so we turned it off. The 50 amp plug was defective but the 30amp worked. Our site was almost level. Fairgrounds interesting to walk around. Close to Lippert and most RV companies so this park is convenient as a utility type RV stop. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here during an RV Rally and were in the infield of the race track, not a regular site. We had water and electricity, but other sites had sewer. The grounds here are landscaped beautifully. Flies were a problem since a fairground is host to animals at times. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is in the heart of Amish country and the RV Industry. Factory tours are available and there is an RV Hall of Fame. Many Amish businesses and restaurants plus the large flea market at nearby Shipshewana offer plenty of things to do.

We stay here very year for the FROG Rally. great staff and the grounds are very well kept. They have a traditional camping section but also fairgrounds type camping, this year we had over 600 units attend this rally and parking was great and everyone seemed pleased.

We stayed in the Northeast campground with water and electric only. We were the only ones in that section. The whole campground was on quite a slope. We parked facing up the slope first but the auto level was unable to level that way, so we hooked back up and faced down the slope. We had about 6" blocks under the front legs but they still had to extend a long way to get level. It is hard to navigate the fairgrounds if you don't know where you're going and we didn't! Sites were all grass as if you were in a field. In the morning the worker started mowing pretty early. We had to figure out the roads before we went to dump. It was an OK place to stay and cheaper than anywhere else in that area, plus it is close to Lippert Components where we had work done on our RV. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a lot to do in this area. We visited the RV Hall of Fame and the Amish festival in Nappanee. Also took a tour of one of the RV manufacturing plants. The area is very Amish and Shipshewana and their flea market is quite close.

Stayed two nights to rest a bit on a cross-country run after a couple of Walmart nights. We chose the W/E section to save money, and it was fine. There were few people there during our stay. The larger campground section was preparing for the fair that would start in a couple weeks. Our site was adequate, and for the price you can't complain. We were allowed to select the one we wanted, so we chose one that would get evening shade from the row of trees as the sun was setting. The rest of the day it was in full sunlight. The bathrooms were individual rooms with a complete bathroom setup in each. Fortunately they lock with deadbolts, as there was a crazy person banging on my door and yelling when I was showering. I called my husband and he came over and kept watch while I finished (he didn't see anyone). Keep in mind that anyone can come into the fairgrounds, and be aware of your surroundings! It's a great place for an overnight or two or three. The train noise didn't bother us, even though it's fairly close. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Das Dutchman Essenhaus - great food, pretty grounds. Nice place to walk around and take a break. Lots of interesting things to do in the area, including the RV museum. Since it's the hub of all things RV, I'm sure we'll be back to partake in more activities in the future.

We were coming into the area for some RV Repairs and chose the fairgrounds due to their great location and also because they just wrote our name down when we called for reservations and asked if we would call if we needed to cancel. How nice is that. This is a large fairground and they have camping areas scattered all around. We chose their 50 amp full hook up area, which happened to be right next to a couple horse corrals. We had live entertainment each day. All the sites are large and easy to back in or pull thru. The staff was friendly and they provided a great packet of information that helped point us to a few fun adventures while we were in the area. $33 for full hookup 50 amp and $25 for 30 amp and water. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Brings bikes and take the pumpkin vine trail from the fairgounds into Goshen. Stop by the Goshen Brewing Co and if you time it for the first Friday of any of the summer months, downtown Goshen fills with music, events and great food.

Our stay in this park was for a rally being held on the grounds. Some of the nicest people that we have meet. All hook ups worked great and where located toward the back of site. Sites were a little close but were laid out very well. Great location the only negative was the trains which were close to campground. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as part of Tiffin rally with 325 rigs. Excellent facilities for a large group. We arrived two days early, so we had one of the better sites, away from the train tracks. The trains come through continuously throughout the day and less frequently after dark. Camping on grass, level sites. Sites were scattered throughout the grounds. Most are very close together, which would normally bother me, but we quickly made friends with surrounding Tiffin owners. Parking for toad vehicles was tight in some rows and spacious in other places. Several nights of rain while we were there resulted in some puddles in places. Their conference rooms were very nice and used for seminars by Tiffin. Also used the large hall for nightly dining. We had full hookups, but showers and bathrooms were clean and in good repair for those without sewer hookup.

If attending a large rally at the facility, plan on arriving a day earlier to have a better selection of campsite. Depending on the size of your group, you could be closer to the railroad tracks, or not have sewer connections. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a Tiffin rally. We were far from the railroad tracks so had little noise. Showers were spotless as we're toilets. Our site, #1, backed up to the race track so we were treated to horses exercising on the track. Fun to watch! Good OTA reception, easy to navigate and well kept grounds. Felt safe and area was well lit. Parking is on grass so if there is rain there is a chance of water ponding. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were here to attend the Tiffin Allegro Club Rally. Our site was a back-in on a grass field with temporary 30 amp and water connections. We had good Verizon cell and internet reception and good DishTV satellite reception. We lost electric power several times due to a bad 200 amp breaker that provided power to 16 coaches. The train tracks were close by and the trains ran constantly day and night. We enjoyed the rally, but the campsite was a bad experience. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were here for a rally. Sites are very narrow when all full. Our door almost opened into our neighbor's slide. For a rally it was OK, but we would not otherwise like being so packed in. Access was OK. GPS could not find the entrance. Trains all day and night. Nice grounds and facilities for a rally. Wifi weak in our location but good near buildings. This place would be OK if there is not an event going on and not full. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice county/4H fairgrounds with electric only to full hookup sites. Parking is on grass so it can be a challenge if there is rain. Has a very busy train track right next to one side of the campground and during our rally there were rigs parked there so they had to have extreme noise. Fortunately, if there is no rally going on there are spaces far away from the tracks. Fairgrounds is conveniently located for seeing the area. All the surrounding communities are within easy driving distance. Over the air TV is acceptable as is Verizon service. Missing are pool, spa, picnic table, fire ring, pet run. Other than the trains, it is quiet at night. Might be hard to obtain a space during fair time. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Really hard to find a campground open in winter with hookups and easily accessible. We are so happy we found this! Bought a new trailer and used this campground to get all tested and set up, excellent find! Grounds are huge, convenient to stores like Walmart and Menards for errands, close to food and restaurants, couldn't ask for better. Easy to find on our GPS, staff is friendly, bathrooms are clean!
