We camped here Memorial Day evening. There are two camping areas, one just inside and to the east of the front gate and the other in the rear and northwest end of the fairgrounds. The previous review only addressed this latter location. The front location has 20, 30, & 50 amp services, some back-in and some pull-through sites. All the front sites are near level, but do not have water or sewer at your connection. Water is available to fill your tanks at the first building on your left as you enter through the front gate. Sewer dump is located behind the bathroom/shower facilities and in front of the aforementioned camp location. We were provided a phone number and name to contact when we called a few days earlier to make a reservation. When we arrived, water and sewer locations were not apparent so called the number provided and the gentleman was nice enough to come right over on his day off (5 minutes) and personally showed us the sewer and water locations. We were the only ones in the front campground that evening. There was some traffic noise from the adjacent roadway, but not objectionable at night. Good over air TV and good satellite access. No WiFi, no pool, etc. We camped at Dubuque County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The fairgrounds are a great deal if visiting Dubuque. They are close to the city, less than 10 minutes to downtown. Sites are all back-in to a fence that has all the utilities. It's really just a grass field with hook ups along the fence line. All the sites slope to the back so leveling can be tricky. Electric and sewer take long cords/hoses depending on the site. A number of seasonal sites in use. Only 4 to 6 other sites available when we were here. Water is not freeze proof so it won't be available in cold months. Racing takes place on Sat night in the summer. We camped at Dubuque County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
