Had a relative in a nearby hospital, making this location very convient. As stated before, ground is soft when rains hit, but the camp host showed me a good spot. Nothing special about the park, but well suited for area travels. Weather turned very cold while there, causing water problems, but worked though it. Site can get very close but there were about 10 rvs on site, so plenty of room. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Camping world is about 15 minutes away...spent way to much there as usual. Lots of places to eat and sjop within 10 minutes.

If you're going to see stuff or do something in Tacoma this is a great location. As mentioned, it's just a big grassy parking lot with full hookups. You can save $5/night by signing up and paying in the Fair office. I can't say that it's convenient for running into Seattle. The fact of the matter is the traffic into Seattle is horrible. You can pretty much count on 1.5 + hrs to drive 30 or 40 miles unless you get very lucky. Right now it's a combination of traffic volume, construction, weather, and accidents. We went into the Seattle from here 3 times and each time it was at least 1.5 hrs each way. That being said I'm not sure there's any place else to stay around the area that would be any better. When we stayed here there were only about a dozen sites filled so we had plenty of space. When it's full you'd pretty much be right on top of one another. Verizon MiFi worked great. We'd stay here again. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.
RV park is grassy field, reasonable price for FHUs in the Seattle area. No amenities, it's a fairground parking experience.
Hosts were nice, can only reserve pay one week at a time, discounted rate to pay through the office during business hours vs. once you arrive. Location convenience is the only reason we stayed here. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 4 weeks. As others have said, this is a grass field with gravel roads and full hook-ups. It does get wet and soft during the potential incessant rains that can occur in the Seattle area. We were able to find a site that had more gravel than any of the others, so we had no problem pulling out when we had too, but we did see one rig that had to be pulled out by a tow truck. The office personnel admitted that tow-outs are not uncommon during the rainy season. We could hear the trains that run about 6 blocks away, but it was tolerable. Only one parking area has heat tape on the water spigots, so they turn the water off to all other sites when the temperature is expected to drop below freezing. The location was convenient for us and we would stay again. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Parking is on grassy field with hookups at rear of sites. Roads are gravel, hostess is delightful, friendly, and very helpful. Probably depending on time of year as to how level the sites are, but at this time we had no problem leveling our rig. It is very quiet and Puyallup is a nice town with a great downtown area. No restrooms or showers available in the campground. We used the TV antenna; however, had we brought the satellite dish, the skies are open to getting a signal. Definitely would stay here again.

This was our only choice in campgrounds. It was the weekend and our trip was last minute. Just a big weed filled field with full hookups. The camp hostess was nice enough, just very stern. She takes her role very seriously! Convenient location, close to town and needed services. Only 2 complaints. The 50 amp power was poor. I kept blowing the circuit breaker and was only pulling about 35 amps. Also, when I made my reservation they didn't tell me the office was closed on Saturday so when I tried to extend my stay on a Saturday morning I had to pay $30 instead of $23. The camp hostess wanted cash that day. An OK place for a few days. I would stay again if the need came up. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy to access, parking is a grassy field, nothing special but inexpensive place to stay in the Seattle area. One nice feature was a Cenex truck that came through every Wednesday. Nice to have propane filled on site instead of taking the tanks somewhere. Camp host is a very personable woman who runs a tight ship. Verizon coverage was OK for both data and cell was weak, worked better with boosters, but was not real strong. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice hostess , long grass, car show coming so raised the price. Quiet and 50 amp. Good location for visiting Tacoma and Mt Rainer. Would stay here again. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.
Perfectly adequate park for visiting the Seattle/Tacoma area. Nothing fancy, just a grass lot. We stayed in the water/electric lot which was just fine. The pleasant downtown area of Puyallup is within walking distance. The rate is higher if you do not get your space through the office during their open hours so call in advance if you will arrive on a weekend or after they close.

Typical fair grounds RV park. Good working utilities, but that is all. Much of the park had soft mud, so rigs were all packed together on a single (more dry) row. Not much in way of security, but park seemed safe. Lots of Trains nearby and the frontage road is heavily used to avoid the traffic on the main drag. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here just before the Good Guys car show was set to start. We were given a couple of sites so we had plenty of room. No frills, basic campsite but worked well for us as we were just trying to take care of a few business things before moving on from the Seattle area. Normal rate is $23 when they don't have an event going on, cheapest place to stay in the Seattle area. Campground host was great. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
Great power and water pressure. No restrooms or shower house. Very friendly and helpful campground host. Very strict with speed limit within the park to ensure no dust is stirred up on the gravel roads since the weather is conducive to open windows. Located right in town just behind the fairgrounds. We came for a three-day event, but stayed 16 days because it is perfect for where we are located. We will gladly stay here again. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.
This park is a quiet green, grassy field. It was only about a quarter full when we were here, so there was plenty of room. The host(ess) was wonderful, friendly and thoughtful. Even though it was "just a field" it was a nice place to sit outside. The view is of an old wooden roller coaster on the fairgrounds. Very cool. We loved it and our dog loved it. Nothing fancy, no amenities, just a really nice place to stay. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.
No frills campground but well priced for Seattle area. Sites were grassy but level. All services were at the back of the sites. Campground was not full so we had plenty of space. If it had been full the sites would have been very tight. Convenient to mass transit. We went to Tacoma and took express bus to Seattle--45 minutes and didn't have to fight the traffic. If you are looking for a base for sightseeing this is a good place. Only issue was TV reception--seemed to be dependent on location in park. We camped at Puyallup Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
