Great RV Park in Redmond, OR. Large spaces, ours is 60+ feet, with additional parking on the side for tow vehicle or toad. No shade, and cable TV is not good. Otherwise, a 10. South of town, near a railroad, but not noisy at all. We would definitely stay here again, but probably not in the summer because RV would get too hot without air all the time. Near Sisters and north of Bend. Lots to see in the area. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the nicest County Fairground park we have stayed out. Large wide concrete pads; pull-throughs have rocks, back-ins have grass. Also right behind the park is a large grass area for playing in. No cable but antenna gets lots of stations including repeats of the majors. Utilities work well. There is a also a very nice brewery (Juniper Brewing) within walking distance from the park that cannot be missed. We plan on making this park a regular from now on.

A very nice park, easily accessible to US 97, Bend and Sisters. Sites are long, level and paved. Pull through sites are plenty long for whatever you might be driving and towing! Additional concrete slab to park other vehicles as well. Sites are spaced well, so there is plenty of room. Could use some trees, as it gets very warm in Redmond, and there is no shade. Good water pressure and excellent electrical. Office staff could be a little friendlier, seemed to be grumpy and bothered when we asked questions about attractions in the area. Since the park is owned by the County of Redmond, and attached to the County Fair Grounds, access is available to the fairgrounds through an unlocked gate. Laundry room is sufficient, but 19 minute cycle for $3.00 in the large capacity washer seemed very steep! Restrooms and showers were clean, but no shower doors on the shower stalls. Very uncomfortable with shower curtains only, and as a woman, feel unsafe to use this type of shower stall. We would recommend this park when traveling in the Redmond/Bend area. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

My type of RV park. Flat wide cement pads, easy access, no trees to deal with, no excess landscaping at the site, and clean. Great place. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy access from Highway 97. The park was very well maintained. Great for big rigs due to large, level sites which were concrete. The park interior roads are asphalt and wide. No trees to deal with and Wi-Fi was great. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a very clean, neat park. Site are large and all are paved but not quite level which we found a bit funny. There was extra paved parking for tow vehicles which was very nice. Office staff was very accommodating. It was a great place to watch the 4th of July fireworks in Redmond. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a park tied to the fair grounds. It has mostly cement pads and asphalt drive ways. some sites have grass others do have gravel between. All the services are good. We stay when we are in the area, we have found the staff to be friendly and very accommodating. Easy to get into and exit. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice rv park, well located, easy to find and access. Practically brand new. All sites were nearly perfectly level concrete pads with gravel or grass patio areas and picnic table, along with extra car pad. They were nicely arranged and spaced throughout the park. There were several long pull through sites. The restrooms and showers are modern and very clean, and the showers even had heaters running so it was warm. I don't think we've been anywhere as clean and neat as this park. Quiet at night. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. You will need a car to go to restaurants and stores.

We had to stay here a week. Paid one/two days at a time but then when I paid the last two days it brought us to a week and they recomputed our rate to the weekly rate. Wide, level concrete pads, entire area is paved, clean restrooms/laundry room, etc. View of several snow capped mountains. A mountain stream flowing by camp site would have been great. Absolutely no negatives about this place. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This would make a good overnight stop, but it's a bit pricy for a week or more because they don't have a discounted weekly rate. Sites are concrete, roads are asphalt. There is a picnic table at most sites which is unusual for a fairgrounds RV park, in our experience. Wi-Fi worked well most of the time. Park was clean and well maintained. When the park isn't busy, I noticed they try to park rigs in every other site so it's not so crowded. We experienced having people parked on each side of us, and it felt a little tight. There are a few grassy areas to walk dogs, plus there's a gate that opens to a big open area of the fairgrounds so there's plenty of dog walking area. Electric and water worked fine. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

As others have stated, this park provides everything you would want other than ambiance. The sites are large and paved; the roads are paved and are easy for big rigs to access. The utilities are in the correct locations and are easy to access. There is a separate parking pad for your car or other vehicle. The grass along the roads and walkways is thick, mowed and well-maintained. The entire park is exceptionally clean. The only thing missing is any sense of ambiance (no scenery, no activities, etc), but if you are using this park as a base for the Redmond/Bend area it is nearly perfect. This is our second stay here and the office was more professionally managed this time and it appears that business not directly associated with fairgrounds activities is on the increase which demonstrates that word is getting around that this is a good deal. Reservations aren't usually necessary but it is worth calling to find out if there are fairground activities scheduled for when you plan to stay since they can result in the park being fully booked. In summary, this is a nearly perfect example of what a non-destination RV park should be like. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

Camp host knows how to run a campground; If possible a space/campsite is left between each person. Their is plenty of grass and other areas to run your dog. Some locations in the "A" section have little or no WiFi access. However, the camp host forewarned us of this problem. Utilities are placed in the right place and worked correctly.

I have no complaints about this campground. It consists of paved interior roads (well, pretty close to the entire interior is paved), with nice long level concrete slabs for RV sites. The concrete slabs have shorter slabs to the right of them for vehicle parking. In front of the vehicle slab there is a rectangular gravel area that contains the hookups along with a grill and picnic table. There are a sprinkling of small trees around the perimeter of the park, but none in the interior. The campground has free Wi-Fi, and it actually worked with no problems when I was there. I've gotten very tired of Wi-Fi systems that you can't use because they are so overloaded, so this place was a pleasant surprise. If you're looking for campgrounds with onsite activities and recreation, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a base camp for the area, then this place is nearly perfect. The maps they have online are a little confusing. They show the expo center as a big circle with the RV section off to one side of the circle and no detail on the approach roads. In reality, it is easy to get to. The easiest route is to take exit 124 off of US 97 and go east. After a couple hundred feet you cross a railroad track. Take the next right and you'll immediately see the campground ahead on the left. Although the campground is half a mile away from a railroad and maybe a mile away from the airport, neither of those is terribly active. I think I heard one train at night and never heard any planes at night. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great place with clean restrooms, well kept grounds, and laundry room. The staff is helpful and friendly. The park is close to restaurants and shopping. There is a golf course right across the street. There is also open BLM land right across the street. Your dog will love running off leash there. You can hike, bike, 4-wheel, or ride your OHV and enjoy the high desert scenery. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

While showers/bathrooms were clean (for the most part, did see some mold in corners of shower), no provisions are available for necessary bathing toiletries and I had to put everything on the floor. Out of the shower, there is no privacy for dressing...just an open room with a long bench (reminds me of my old high school gym days). Park has no grass, only concrete, pavement, and crushed stone. Each site is plenty big even for a 45' RV with toad. No trees for shade and could not find a dog run. No cable, but Wi-Fi was very good. Staff was friendly and park had easy access, egress. Park was very clean! We camped at Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.
