FHU 50 amp site. As previous reviews have stated you would need a 50 to 30amp adapter since all the electric hookups seem to be 50 amp. Utilities are a fairly long run unless you take up 2 sites and pull in parallel to the fence. The fences seem to be in place to protect the hookups and there are cutouts approx 10 feet from the center of each site (in the corners) which is not terribly far to get to. Previous reviews mentioned a long walk but perhaps the complex changed the arrangement. From our panel on our 40' motorhome I would guess it was approx 30' for water, electric and sewer. All gravel sites, 200 available so we had no difficulty finding a place. Free WIFI was not mentioned anywhere and it worked well most of the time. Since the complex is large and wide open, you will be subject to the regular 15-20mph wind from the west so I would not recommend using your large awning here unattended. Some leveling required at the site. This complex is approx. 4 miles off I-80 so there is very little noise here. GPS may direct you to proceed about 1.5 miles further north on Yellowstone Rd. but the campground is just north of the main entrance to the Sweetwater Complex. We enjoyed the scenery so much we stayed 4 nights. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Highly recommend visiting the Flaming Gorge Recreation Area. It runs down Hwy 191 from Rock Springs and travels through Utah and then back up the west side of the Gorge. Visit the dam and enjoy the beautiful scenery. You probably should stop at the Chamber of Commerce beforehand and pick up a guide map so that you get full benefit of the information for the ride. We left our RV at the campground and drove the toad around the "loop".

Good enough for one night. The set up is unique. The water and power is behind a small fence. We were told just to go out and pick a site that still had the utilities turned on. That was kind of a challenge, then we weren't sure as to the angle we were supposed to pull into the site. Saw no reason to have the water/power fenced in. Had to go around or over the fence. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with the other campers. Be sure to have a 50/30 amp adapter, as my site didn't have a 30 amp plug. All gravel. Not quite level. At the edge of town. We will stay again. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

this place has so much potential, yet it is a difficult and inconvenient place to stay. the sites are gravel and not level, but the most difficult thing to deal with is the placement of the hookups. they are inside a fenced area, and you have to walk around to get to them. this could be solved easily if they would just cut a gap in the fence in each site. but the sewer and water are still a long distance and you need plenty of length. it was nice and quiet, and has a lot of potential if they would just do a few minor improvements. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

As this is at a fairgrounds, you may want to check their website before staying here to see if the fair is in progress. No reservations, but lots of sites, all gravel back in, no shade. Some are not very level. When you get there, you must go to the Caretaker's house to register, be sure you don't take a site that isn't in service. There is an inconvenient fence protecting the hookups, I used a step stool to get over it. I would stay here again. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Open area for camping, no shade (it's a fairgound). It was clean and the hosts were very nice. There are a LOT of flies due to horses coming in and out of the grounds. Your hookups are behind you and behind a fence that you have to climb over. Water is only available if you park dead center of each camping lane...kind of a horse shoe. We were in P184 and the water was behind P182. You will need an extra long hose and not the typical camper hose. Still, what is up with the fences?? You would think they would provide an opening to walk into the middle of the fences to hook up and unhook. But the campground served our purpose for hunting in the area. There is also no road or train noise. Oh, and there is a speedway right next door and it runs on Fri and Sat nights until about 10 PM. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Truck Camper.

Staying here for a couple of nights. Full hookups for $25 per night so price is right. We are in P62 which is a parallel parking spot. Just fit our 40ft mh in site. Sites gravel but clean from what we can see. The caretaker told us to: "Just go pick a spot." So we did. No shade or bathrooms but that was just fine for us. Would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Open gravel lot with little space between sites. But for this price for full hookups, it's just fine for one night. I asked the caretaker the reason for the fences, and she said the architect came up with them. Perhaps they are meant to be decorative. She put me on the end (there were lots of choices) so I could go around the fencing and didn't have to climb over. There were a few horse apples, but not fresh and not smelly. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The campground entrance is not well marked; enter at Gate E. Sure enough, you need to climb over a 4' fence to get to your hookups, and they are about six feet behind the back of your RV. The sewer connections are slightly uphill at some sites. Many sites are quite unlevel, and some had obviously been recently used as horse corrals. Maybe the fence is there to keep the horses from damaging the fixtures. We were the only campers there the night we stayed, but it was midweek in early May, and it was cold and windy. The caretaker was very friendly and helpful. Given the price and the local competition, we would stay there again when passing through Rock Springs, but we wouldn't look forward to it. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

With it being Labor Day weekend we figured a full campground. 200 sites and we were the only ones here. Full hookup and only $25. No amenities, away from water and hill climbing but if you need a clean and quiet place to spend the night, this is it. Close to Wal-Mart, IHOP and a few other fast food places and Flying J. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good option if you want a place to hookup for the night. The Good: -Great price. -Clean. -It was very quiet on a Tuesday night with no scheduled events. -Even though we showed up at 9 p.m. with no reservation, the friendly on-site caretaker quickly checked us in. -Level. The Bad: -Showers a lengthy walk from campsites. Only 1 woman's shower, with no lock on the door; very secluded and didn't feel safe. -Must climb over a low fence to hook up. Advice: -Don't bother with the information booth, which only gives daytime office numbers. Drive to the caretaker's house behind it. -Try to get a site toward the edge of the fairground (away from caretaker's house). Electricity is unreliable in the closer spots. -It's a gravel lot with no amenities - OK for overnight but not much to do or see unless you're attending an event. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is the strangest park I think we've ever been in! The power & sewer hookups are behind the site between rail fences that you have to climb over. We weren't able to use the sewer hookups due to the fact that it was so far away. This is the most asinine setup I've ever experienced. I asked the camp host who is located at the back of the park in a yellow double-wide why the electric box and sewer connections were behind a fence. She said she's had a number of complaints and that it must have looked good on paper. Too bad they spent all this money on a remodel, what a waste. We had dumped our tanks at the last park we were in so not having a sewer hookup wasn't the end of the world. The entrance to this "park" is off of Yellowstone Rd. Entrance Gate E... It's an OK overnighter and that's about it... Cell phone, Satellite dome, Aircard worked fine here and we didn't have any problems with the power or water. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

If you're headed to Rock Springs, you only have a couple of choices, and this is probably one of the better ones. First, it's off of the freeway, so the noise level (on non-race nights) is good. They recently re-did the campsites with new fencing and new electrical/water/sewage hookups. We had some problems with the electrical, but moved to another spot, and everything ended up working. The bathrooms (located in the indoor arena building) were fairly clean with the exception of the shower stalls which hadn't been thoroughly cleaned for some time. Relatively speaking, this was a nice spot, and our dog loved the freedom and other animals located on the grounds. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
