As with all fairgrounds it isn’t designed for camping. But staying at or really near the event is much cheaper than a hotel. Overall good.
the fairgrounds were full of litter and there was a lot of mud. the locals helped make things better by simply being nice.
I always loved going here when I lived in Iowa! The State Fair was a blast! Being able to actually stay there made it that much better!!
The Iowa State Fair is the best fair in the world with more than a million visitors every year! There is something for everyone in the family. The campground is really built for RV and Camper Trailers, personally I would not pitch a tent there. It has two large shower houses and flush toilets. It is contained inside the Iowa State Fairgrounds. This is an amazing event that showcases the best of Iowa agriculture and is fun for the family. This is not your typical campground. The Fair generally begins the second Thursday in August and runs 11 days. Enjoy the fun!
It's no surprise that the fair grounds always have some sort of event going on throughout the year, my family and I stay in this campground a few times a year to hit up multiple days for certain events. The site is pretty standard, but it has full RV hook ups, and always seems to be full of happy and friendly people. Plus it's location is so close to the fair grounds, it's better and far more affordable than any hotel
