This campground was an unexpected gem. The campsites are all around the perimeter of the fairground. The best ones are at the back alongside a wildlife sanctuary along the Thunder Bay River. You can see swans swimming in the river, it is very lovely. The campground offers only electricity. There is a source of water at the dump station. The sites are mostly level. The fairground is along a bike path that goes through the town. We biked to the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center and the glass bottom boat shipwreck tour in about 10 minutes. They only take cash or checks. There is a very nice laundromat in town down by the harbor called Tons o Suds. We camped at Alpena County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Very basic park, which was all that was needed for our time there. We stayed in one of the back sites by the river. The ones on each end are fairly level while the others, not so much. Those sites were pleasant because of the walking/biking path and away from the traffic noise; however, if you need to be by the bathrooms park in the front section. We stayed there to visit the Great Lakes Heritage Museum and to take the shipwreck boat tour. Both were fantastic. Strong Verizon cell/MIFI. A couple of miles from Walmart. Would stay again. We camped at Alpena County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

I gave this county fairgrounds a 4 star rating because the sites were very nice, we had a view of the lake, and there was an excellent bike trail right behind us. The sites are level and the electric is great. This county fairground has a lot of sites to pick from, but we loved the sites with the view of the lake. The caretakers are very nice and very helpful. We would return here to this county fairground campground. We camped at Alpena County Fairgrounds in a Truck Camper.

We spent a week at this campground at the rate of $110. Regular rate is $20 a night for less than 7. Water is available before you go to your site as well as a dump station. This is a typical Fairgrounds so we were treated to the first viewing of the Alpena 4th of July parade as they assembled at the Fairgrounds. We stayed in back along the river and weren't bothered by any road traffic. Care takers very friendly! We had a huge site! Would definitely stay here again!
