This is an excellent value especially if you have Passport America or Good Sam which gives you 50% discount. Mercer Co residents pay $15. Others pay $20. That is full price. There are some sites on blacktop but most are on grass. I would have given the park a higher rating but because of the lack of showers I didn't. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
We were just passing through so we didn't look for anything to eat or things to do.
Our fee reflects Passport America rates. We were somewhat disappointed staying here on our way to Indiana. The full hookup sites were taken by 2 other campers so we had to use the dump station on site. Don't know where the 250 sites are as there were no site markers. "Sites" were scattered on grassy areas between roads and water spigots were also scattered and shared by several campers. We did luck out and managed to get a site on gravel/mulch with electric and water. We were able to use our satellite via our Verizon MyFi. While here we toured the area, namely St Mary's Grande Lake and the State Park there. We also toured the town to see historic buildings and buy groceries at a large "new" local market. Although this stop was convenient on our travel north we probably would stay at the State Park which also has Passport America rates. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
The sites are large but tend to be soft when it rains. No gravel sites only grass. There's a definite lack of shade even though the park is full of trees. They just are not situated over the campsites. Office staff is friendly and helpful. One drawback for a monthly stay is absolutely no high speed cable internet or phone available. Luckily the 4g network for our own wireless works pretty well. Restrooms are large and clean but plain service. Definitely no frills. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our quiet night in the fairgrounds. And quiet is amazing over Memorial Day weekend. The graduation party wrapped up their nice music before 8pm. Huge oak trees shaded our site one of many in the middle section of the campground. Other sites have trees planted in the last few years. Some sites have no services, ours had electricity only. Both dump stations were clean and well maintained. Our grassy site was long, and almost level. Great dog park in nearby Grand St. Mary's State Lake Park - clean, mowed, and no cost too. This town's historic downtown has a couple nice bakeries, and diner-like "Fountain". And it is a somewhat short drive to astronaut Neil Armstrong's Air & Space Museum. To say even more, we should have bought a Passport America membership this year, as our 2-night stay could have saved us enough to pay for about half the annual membership.

Very good value with PA for 50 amp, water and sewer. As posted very limited number of sewer hookups and they are layer out real weird. We had site 11 and took our time making sure we could reach the sewer (forward) and electric (behind RV). Stayed over the Memorial Day weekend and it was very quiet here. Celina is a nice quiet town and a nice place to relax for awhile. Found "It's It Bar and Grill" great prices and good food. Located right next to the Kozy Kampground on the SW corner of lake.

There were a limited number of 50 amp electric available, and limited water hookups during our stay. This is a beautiful, shady fairgrounds but most sites are grass. We were here for a rally during a heavy rainy week, a lot of rigs got stuck! Fairgrounds pulled out anyone who got stuck, so that was good! We definitely would stay here again. Weather can't be helped! We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Price reflects 50% discount for Passport America. Good Sam gets the same discount. Nice grass sites with some full hookups. Ours was 50 amp, water and sewer hookup. The sewer is quite a ways from the other connections so take lots of pipe or use a macerator like I did. The fair had just finished so not many campers. Grand Lake had hydroplane races going and the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum is not far away. The water is heavily chlorinated so you may want to bring you own for coffee, etc. I saw county police a couple times and not much else inside the grounds. We would stay again if in the area.

Nice quiet small fairgrounds with a friendly staff. Sites are on grass and mostly level. Some sites have full hookups. We stayed using Passport America 50% rate. We would stay here again. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were camped here for an RV rally, so I cannot pinpoint the exact fee per night, as it was part of our total fee for the rally. We enjoyed our stay here. The facilities are nice and clean. Staff was friendly. We had 30amp electric only, and had plenty of power. There is one dump station that is in a bit of an awkward location, but useable nonetheless. You can pick up several TV stations over the air. Would definitely camp here again. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed the 4th of July Holiday in this clean, quiet fairgrounds. The park manager and the resident workcamper were friendly and knowlegable guys. We camped here using Passport America with no difficulty. The town of Celina appears coloquial, yet still offers such amenities as Wal-Mart. To celebrate the Independence Day holiday we spent the day at Lake St. Mary nearby and stayed for the evening celebrations with a free Lee Greenwood concert. This is how to have a great camping experience. Thanks! We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
A nice well maintained county fairground park. Sites are level with some paved, but mostly grass. Good electric and water. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rate is a Passport America rate. The county fair is the middle of August and it might be wise to call ahead during this time. I would stay here again. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
$10 is Passport America rate for electric and water only. $5 additional charge for sewer connection, but dump station is free for campers. Like many county fair campgrounds there are places to park all over the place, in wooded areas and in fields. Mostly it's parking on grass but a few paved spots are available. We only spent on night while passing through the area but would consider a longer stay next time. The town is neat and clean with good grocery stores and services. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Quiet park with huge oak shade trees. Trees are trimmed back so no damage is likely to RV. The sites are mostly grass. Roads are paved. Some sites were not to level. Difficult to determine exactly where site boundaries are. This would make a great overnight park. Would also be great for a place to take kids in the hot months as there is a beautiful swimming pool very close to the campground. Celina is a nice progressive town with lots to do. Good restaurants close by. Full shopping close by and of course the huge Grand Lake about a mile away for fishing and boating. The price is right for these days. We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The fairgrounds is open to camping year round, they have grass sites, nice trees, some full hookups, and a dump station. Security is provided by regular Country Sheriff patrols. We spent a great 5 days there ...very pleasant small town atmosphere. We will definitely be back to this one! We camped at Mercer County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
