We stayed here one night on our way home from Colorado. There were only 4 sites being used so it was quiet with lots of space. There was good outdoor lighting for security. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites are rather primitive but adequate. Had full hook-ups. For the price a great value. We were here while the grain harvesters were camped for the harvest. They welcomed us and found a place for us near them. It is not fancy, but is adequate and a great value. Activities at the fairground are next door: stock car races while we were here. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night as we were headed north. The spaces were huge and easy to back in to. Host was right there and very friendly and helpful. Grass was nice, spot wide and pretty level. It just happened that a Bluegrass Festival was here and was a special treat. Very clean fairgrounds. Would recommend!! We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

You may want to call and see if there is an event happening. County Fair is the end of July and they have other activities going on. We lucked out, there were a few spaces open and great entertainment with a Bluegrass Festival

This park is great for a one night stay or more. I called the number. Left a message about when we were coming. Hoped for the best. Arrived to be the only ones there. Large grassy field. Hook-ups at rear but we were able to back in and reach was perfect. Safe area. No amenities, but it was perfect for our one night stay. Someone came by in the AM, and we paid him. Easy in easy out. Back in only. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Be prepared to bring you slides in. We were there in mid June and the wind woke us up at 3AM. There were a few storms building that night.

Visiting family and friends in Colby. Stay here at least once a year. Full hook-up great, easy in, lots of space, quiet. We prefer this to the only other rv park in Colby. We have our own wifi and antenna picks up several major stations. Great walking area. Rains do cause some muddy conditions but we parked on a mostly high and grassy area. We were the only rv for most nights, loved it. Caretaker is very helpful. The price is right discount for weekly stays. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We called ahead for directions, easy off exit 53, North, to Cedar, left to end of Street ,turn right then left again into trailer parking. Grass field, no trees, county fairgrounds, we were only 3rd trailer here, we picked out site that had more grass then others, level site mostly, full hook ups. Groundskeeper didn't answer phone, but we parked anyway; as we set up he came by, gave him 20, told us if we wanted to stay another day just drop in a box by a building. Paid for days we stayed, no receipt, cash only, water was great, electric 50 amp, sewer great. We needed a rest for a few days after leaving Denver. No one disturbed us, couple of long term trailers, one trailer left following day, but overall quiet, quiet. Must be self contained. Enjoyed no frills camping but with full hookups! Good for us, will come back, no problem, quiet, area, by high school, no noise from that either. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one night when traveling through. Lots of room and there were about 10 campers there. You just pick a site and the caretaker caught us in the AM when we were leaving. Nice quiet place to spend a night. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground was adequate and quite level. We were parked on dirt that could become mud in a rain. There is no shade at all here. The full hookups were adequate. The water pressure was high so a pressure regulator was used. The 50 amp service was spot on. This is really a nice fairgrounds with nice buildings. The services are really good in the area with many shopping and restaurant choices nearby. We would stay here again. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice, clean, large back-in sites. Full hookups, it is on the county fairgrounds land. No showers/restrooms, you must be self-contained. There are no signs on roads to find this campground. You can stop at the visitor center or like most add to your GPS. Quiet area and close to shopping and gas. Great place for overnight stays. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Stayed here en route to Colorado for one night only. It was very sufficient for the one night. A lot of space to back up our big trailer. Attendant was friendly. It was quiet and off the highway as well. Would stay here again. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We made the decision to stay here at the last minute, when a thunderstorm chased us off the interstate, so I didn't have very high standards. The Thomas County Fairgrounds both met my expectations and surprised me. This is a campground that exists to serve annual county fair. The fact that it was still open puzzles me a bit, but there were another half-dozen sites occupied, so maybe they get enough business to justify it. The campground is really just an open field, mowed short, and a little muddy in the rain. There are zero activities for the children, unless you count running amok in field (after a long day on the road, sometimes that's all we need!). No pull-through sites, but the sites are incredibly easy to get into, with tons of maneuvering room, and only the utilities hookups to worry about hitting. The campground attendant was very casual -- we called in to check they had an opening, and he just told me to pick whatever site looked good to us :) As we were settling in, he came to collect our payment -- $20 cash, no registration required. Because we'd pulled off the road due to a thunderstorm, I asked about a storm shelter. It's a concrete box under the grandstand -- not exactly ideal to this Kansas girl, but lots better than a trailer in a storm! Fortunately, we didn't need it. Would I stay here again? If I needed to a place to get off the road in Colby, yes. Would I make it a destination? No. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This is a fairgrounds that has installed full hookup campsites. The sites are dirt but level. We called ahead and was told to just pull in and pick a site. It wasn't long after pulling in a guy came around and collected the $20.00 fee. We used our antenna and were able to pull in several stations without difficulty. For a place to spend the night we would stay here again. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the daily rate; if you stay longer than a week I believe it is cheaper. If you don’t know where to turn off the main highway, it could be hard to find. The road is gravel and the sites are all back-in on grass. It wasn’t busy for this stay, so we were able to pick a level site without too many bumps. There is no shade, utilities were fine, and they have great water pressure. It was quiet as it is located off the main road. Both Verizon and Sprint worked OK but the Sprint was roaming. We will stay here again. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

If you need a place to stop for the night near Colby KS, this place works. Full hookup sites are $20/night. Since it is located in the fairgrounds park, I expect that it is full when there are activities at the fairgrounds. Nothing was happening at the fairground when we stopped there. There was nowhere to check in (it is just a large dirt parking lot with full hookups). We called the phone number on the sign; the person who answered told us to just put $20 in a truck that was parked nearby. It works for a quick overnight stay. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

The RV park is obviously set up for Fair Carnival workers, and the sites feel somewhat tight. It is about 18’ between the sewer pipes, but each pipe is encased in concrete poured into a vehicle tire, laying flat on the ground, (they must have gotten tired of people runing over their sewer pipes). The extra foot or so taken up by the tire on each side of the site reduces site width to 16’ or less. There is a graveled road that runs across the front of the sites, but the sites are, like the rest of the area, very flat river silt. It might get a little soft in a good rainstorm. About half the sites have a dip in the middle. This dip is no problem for towable RVs, because the wheels are close together. In a motor home, the front wheels are on higher ground, and the rear wheels wind up in the middle of this dip. People must have complained though, because the other half of the sites have this dip filled in. Just park in any vacant site. A representative will come around, after dinner, (in our case) to collect fees. Basic Verizon phones worked well, and 4Gite was available on our Verizon modem and also worked well. There was no obstruction to Satellite TV signal. I couldn’t find an address for the actual fairgrounds anywhere, although it isn’t that hard to locate once you get to town. We would stay here again. We camped at Thomas County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
