4 Parks near Sterling, Kansas
Jul 2016 - $18.00
We stayed for a week, including the 4th of July. Rate reflects discounted 7 night stay. Rv Park was nearly empty but the fairgrounds had a number of activities and events during the week culminating with the fireworks so it was pretty noisy at times. You drive in, pick your site and drop your payment in the drop box (cash or check) or go to the Admin office at the fairground entrance (credit card). The lady in Admin was so helpful and pleasant. Sites are grass and dirt, interior roads are cement. All sites are full hookups, back ins. Sites are spacious. Some sites have cement pads. The west side of the park has some trees for late afternoon shade; east side is mostly open to the sky. When it rains, the ground gets muddy and soft but the park has good drainage. No off leash dog park, no cable, no free wifi. It was quiet most nights until a few days before the 4th, then the fire crackers and fireworks were constant, along with the police sirens and trains. Stores, groceries, restaurants were a few minutes away. The 4th fireworks show was in the fairgrounds so we had front row seats. We plan to return again, but not during a major holiday. - Flippitti

Nice campground on the fairgrounds site. We were here for a rally so have no idea of the rate. The site was grass/gravel and was pretty solid with little mud after we had rain. Biggest complaint is trying to figure out which gate would be open on any given day. Main fair gate seemed to always be open. - peddy dick

Hutchinson is a nice city to spend a couple of days in. The fairground is about 2 miles from downtown. The fairground has a separate RV park when the fair is not going on (held in September).
The interior roads were on cement and all of the sites are on packed grass and gravel. I don't believe there would be a problem getting out of the site if it rained heavily. All of the sites have FHU located on the appropriate side and the sites were fairly level. All sites are back-ins. A water pressure regulator hangs on each water spigot if you so choice to use it. Each site has 50/30/20 amp electrical service. The electrical voltage was good - hovering around 124. The voltage might be lower if the park was filled and everyone was using their air conditioners.
Only one of the bath houses was open at the time of our visit. It contained two showers and was spotless. There are also 2 dump stations within the fairgrounds. There were street lights within the RV park but they were not working during our stay. There are a few picnic tables scattered around the park. Wifi is not available and there are no fire rings.
There was some train noise but it did not bother us at night. We would definitely come back to this campground if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

Serviceable. An older camp, with nice folks. A parking spot with hook ups. Friendly managers and residents, both long term and visitors. Felt Safe. Showers dated, laundry quite nice. Hookups good, shared with the very close side by side neighbor on the pull thru sites, back ins were more attractive and spacious. - SDCampowneroperator
May 2010 - $25.00
Convenient park and the owners were super nice. Nice and shady, but not that well kept up. I would give it a higher ranking except the sites weren't level (a pet peeve of mine for a commercial campground). Also, the sewer connection was almost a foot above ground, causing problems with drainage. - GrRaider

This is a small City Park located on a pond. You pay on the honor system. Very pleasant place to stay. There are four sites, two across from two. Not exactly a pull-thru but easily accessible. There was a train nearby for one night only. Be sure to go into Ellinwood and take a tour of the underground tunnels with the "mens businesses". - retiredhappy
