This campground is very convenient and we stayed here for 6 nights while visiting relatives. The utilities worked well but the water and electric were right outside our door but the sewer was on the opposite side of the RV. Even though inconvenient, our water hose and electrical cord reached because the sites are quite close together. We stayed in site G-4 for three nights and got very little sleep due to the street noise. We moved to site B-8 for the last three nights and the road noise was not as bad. I would stay here again because it is so convenient. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Avoid the "G" row if you are a light sleeper (even if you aren't a light sleeper). The "A" and "B" rows are much better.
The staff has the typical government employee attitude and could care less about you the customer, but the campground itself is a big parking lot and clean. The hook ups are not in the ideal location they do work. It is the best place to stay if you're going to visit Milwaukee as far as geographic location. Everybody we met here was very nice except the staff. Like other posts the staff appear to have a chip on their shoulder although they weren't deliberately rude. Easy in and out off the freeway as well. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Walk the Riverwalk and try the restaurants in the historic third Ward area
There is a lot of construction at the exit, people should be aware that the road is gone after about two blocks, but you can turn left, then go to Main Street and turn right, and the park is ahead of you with entrance on Main Street. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Excellent location for visiting Milwaukee and points North
Fast, friendly check in. Very helpful desk person. Site is just big enough for a large rig, not overly level. As others have said, all blacktop with sewer connections not well designed, but it worked. Wi-Fi was excellent and laundry was good. Average ease of entry and exit for big rigs. High price but no other options for many miles. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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 .

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
