For us, this was a nice overnight stop to beat the heat!

Although we had new solar, it was too hot to depend on that alone for the night, so my wife found this location. It was not a bad night's stay. 

There are a few sites, all on dirt/gravel slots, no trees in the parking area.  Nearest to the shower-bath house are double sites, a plug, 30-amp power and water for each side of the power box, and out towards the street are more like single sites, my wife was told those sites are for bigger rigs. The RV parking all looked like relatively new installations for the water and power.

Full hook up is water and electric with a dump station on site, no at site dumping available, for $25.00. 

There is a pay station located at the shower-bath building with pay envelopes to fill out and drop in a lock box. 

Bathrooms were actually very nice and clean. One side is the two bathrooms the other side two shower rooms. 

The showers cost $3 or 5 dollars IN QUARTERS ONLY, and there is a change machine by the bathrooms if needed. As we were in our small Micro-Minnie Winnebago we opted to try the shower room. My wife and I paid the $3 for both of us and used the shower at the same time. Good water pressure, clean room, warm water. 

We didn't need to dump, but it wasn't said well on any signage we saw, and we believed paying for full hook up was also to mean dumping was paid for. It costs $5.00 to dump if you don't pay for full or just need to stop and dump. 

As there were no directions we were unsure how exactly you were supposed to park to be in "your site" so we just kinda went with it and parked to be able to stay connected to our truck without the truck sticking out too far in the driving lanes in case others came in to stay. There were only three RVs at the location that night, including ours, so it wasn't crowded. 

It seemed like the back of the RV was supposed to be at the power water connection, but we never did find out for sure. 

Since this visit was during the heatwave of July 2022, it was VERY nice to have power for the night, and we had our  rig A/C on all night long. 

It was a very quiet night, and if we were in in the region again, as long as the fair isn't going, we wouldn't have any problem staying there again. Overall a nice place, and we saved a lot of money from staying at a regular RV park. Nothing fancy but not bad either in our opinion.

  • One of the double sites down from the single sites in the background that go out toward the street from the bathroom house and at the drive around area separating the doubles from the single sites.
  • Looking back at the three RVs that were there overnight that night.
  • Bath-shower building. Bathroom on this side of the building with the pay station and the showers on the other end of the building.
  • Pay station and prices as of July 2022.
  • More fees listed on the side of the building.
  • The RV dump. There is a long driveway that is "U" shaped around a large grass field, and you can go either way to get to this point and dump then drive out to the highway when done and leaving the fairgrounds.
  • Inside the men's room.
  • Inside one of the shower rooms.
  • Where you put in your quarters to use the shower. One and a time for the quarters and go slow is what the signs say.
  • Our site with the GPS coordinates if you want to know.
