Girl in office felt quite disturbed when she needed to check us in and even more when I came back with some simple questions. Anyhow, quick check in with no problems, just not friendly. Several restaurants in easy walking distance, good location for a stop over. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have been here numerous times in the past. See my 9/13 review for a description of the park and its facilities. Once again we were able to get a reservation here during Labor Day weekend because there was nothing going on at the State Fair Park. Unlike a previous reviewer, the check in process took way too long. The pavement of the "parking lot" is asphalt, not cement as stated by the last reviewer. He also said that the hookups were easy - not true. Again, see my previous review describing shared hookups. Since that previous reviewer mentioned coming in after hours, I have to wonder if he was the $%^&*@! who woke us after midnight while he set up. Although there was nothing going on at the fair grounds, there was some sort of a Harley Davidson event locally, so there were enough inconsiderate bikers to disrupt the peace and quiet of the RV park a dozen times from 6 A.M. to midnight. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was basically a paved parking lot, but we liked this park because of its great location to downtown. The spots are large, but the hookups are in odd places (our spot had the electric at the very front for a back in site). Sewer hookups were slightly raised rather than flush with the ground which can be challenging. There is a racetrack nearby and we did hear the cars in the middle of the day, but usually we were out and about, so this wasn't a problem. Laundry facilities were excellent and great WiFi. We would stay here again. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

The only park in Milwaukee. Essentially a cement parking place, but easy full hook up, a laundry room, and helpful front desk. We were in a situation we needed to find a place late at night, the security told us we could park in an empty spot and pay the next morning, worked like a charm .

We had made reservations. We pulled in...they had our packet ready...in--out--done! Don't think I've ever been checked in as quickly or courteously as this place. Excellent service. Now, we know you're not gonna pick this campground for the scenery, but if you want to be close to downtown Milwaukee, this place really fills the bill. Nice people, adequate facilities, and close to downtown. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

Since there were no big events going on at the State Fair Park, we stayed here the first Saturday night of September. We had a FHU, pull-through site. Because this is an asphalt parking lot, much of the asphalt is wavy. This means many sites are not level. There are now 22 FHU sites designated as seasonal. There are still about 50 FHU sites available for travelers. Additionally, there are over 30 sites on the west side of the park that are electric only. The WiFi worked well for us in the RV. That may have been because there were only 25-30 RVs in the park. There is no cable TV but there are lots of over the air channels and most sites are satellite friendly. I've always had a problem with the sewer hook ups here. They now have raised, 3 opening sewer pipes at every other site. One opening is vertical but the other two are angled. If you are lucking enough to get the alternating site with the sewer toward the rear and get the vertical opening, you are fine. If not, the sewer is too far forward, and you have to deal with the angled opening. The night we were here, several "dormitory" trailers with young workers were in an adjacent parking lot. This situation might bother some RVers who are overly concerned about security and safety. The only problem these kids created was a crowded bathroom on Sunday morning. The bathroom and showers are in the same building as the office. They are fine except for that first thing in the morning worker situation. The building also has a large laundry. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

The place is well located and has very adequate facilities. At $21 a night, the price was right and we had full hookups, a level site, and were ready to go see the sights. We would stay there again. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

Requested a pull through for 1 night stay. Forty foot motorhome towing. Gave us a pull through, but not long enough. None of the sites are. Had to unhook. Basically a concrete parking lot with hookups. On the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds. Only park near Milwaukee. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is definitely a parking lot style RV park. There are lots of street lights so it's not dark at night. That said, the bathrooms and laundry are nice, but had no a/c. The location is great for anything in the Milwaukee area. The area is fine: no worries at all. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Location is a 10. We have stayed here a few times for work and to visit family. You can't beat the location. The neighborhood is fine. Not fancy but working class middle America. No shade and no privacy between spots. The spaces are large. No other place to RV in Milwaukee. Can be to a Milwaukee Brewer game in less than 10 minutes. Can be downtown in 10 to 15 minutes. You can get to the western suburbs in 15 minutes. Laundry is clean and fairly spacious. The sewers are in strange spots like others have said. Just check the site to make sure it works for you. Not that noisy but it does have a lot of ambient lighting which does bother me but not my husband. We will be back due to the location! We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with all said before but the location is great. It is a state fair park not a camping place in the woods so the parking lot feel is to be expected. I was leaving the park in early December it was 10 degrees out side. My truck was sluggish to start because of the cold. I asked the guy at the desk for a jump. He looked irritated that I interrupted his book reading. I asked him why not as I was a little stunned (most of us have needed or been asked to give a jump in our life time especially in such cold temperatures), He replied he didn't have any cables I informed him I had cables and I was knowledgeable enough to hook them up with out causing any damage to his truck. He then said no I'm not going to help you, and went back to reading his book and pretended I wasn't there. He didn't offer to call park security who might of helped I asked one of my fellow campers who was very friendly even though I woke him up refused the 20$ I tried to give him and wished me a safe trip. I will not stay here again. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our third time here overall and first time in 4 years. Because there was no official event going on at the fairgrounds/race track on Labor Day weekend, we were able to get a pull-through, FHU site for 2 nights with all the hook-ups on the driver's side. As noted by others, the sewer receptacles are strange and on the "wrong" side at some sites. The park was maybe half full with about a dozen RVers there for a HD motor cycle rally in the area this LD weekend. Aside from some annoying late/early revving of motors, we did not experience any significant noise problems (parties, the bar across the street, or the interstate) during our stay. In fact, I-94 is several hundred yards from the closest edge of the park and recessed below the surrounding area reducing the traffic noise. While most previous reviews make valid comments about it being an "asphalt parking lot" and the noise potential when crowded, they also note that the location is great for visiting Milwaukee. However, I really don't understand the recent review that said the park was in a "not good area". In the course of my visits here, I have walked at least a mile north, south, and east of the RV park (the fair grounds are to the west). The immediate area is mostly middle class (and some high end) single family homes with several churches and schools. Suburban West Allis's downtown/main street is less than a mile south with shops, restaurants, and other commercial buildings. What's "not good" about the area? We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good: Was easy on/off; level sites; big rig friendly. Bad: VERY noisy. Several campers were still “partying” at 2 a.m.; not a great part of town; no trees. Basically just a parking lot with hook-ups. Would probably not stay again, but might in a real pinch. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because of its location. Pretty noisy at night, but we had prepared for this by packing ear plugs. There were not that many folks staying here, so we had our choice of parking spots. We arrived after closing hours on a Friday night and checked-in/paid the next morning. We grilled out before a Sunday Brewer game. Even though we were not staying that night, management allowed us to keep the trailer at our spot until after the game. Will definitely stay here again for our next visit to Milwaukee!

Only game in town if you want to stay close in - too bad as its not much more than a noisy overpriced and not too level parking lot. Try for a site as far back from the interstate as you can. You will sleep better. Management either cannot or will not enforce its own rules. They were allowing as what only can be described as a mobile crash pad to park. Their own published regulations prohibit anything other than fully self-contained RVs. It was housing 5 or 6 very scruffy individuals. We were awoken in the middle of the night (2am) by much loud noise coming from this group. Went on for several hours before I finally called security. Found out this was not the first incidence. We were able to move to the other side of the park fortunately. The person on duty stated he "really couldn't do anything" other than point out the rules to the campers. Would only stay here again in a pinch. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.
