The first night of our stay there was a "barn" bash in a nearby building. It was loud, and vehicles parked all around us. The second night was much worse. There was a quinceanera that was extremely loud until about 2am. All of the other RV folks were extremely upset as well. Parking was so crowded we couldn't have pulled out if we wanted to. People drinking and being loud right by our RV. We are going to request a refund. Two noisy nights in a row.

More expensive than other Washington fairgrounds. Too many fees and the visitor room tax on a van-sized RV is ridiculous.

Really appreciate being able to camp during events at Southwest Fairgrounds. That said, it is clear that budget restraints have not left this wonderful facility untouched. For those in motorhomes, there is almost no 30 amp or 50 amp power. And sometimes the 110 outlets either don’t work or are installed upside down so are not usable. Water is advertised as being available but sometimes the spigots are just a couple inches off the ground so those of us with pressure gauges have to either forgo that protection for our Rv or just carry our own water. I will continue to sign up to camp here. I love coming to events at this fairgrounds. Hoping this will help future campers not get caught by surprise.

We stayed 2 nites for a Barn Hunt Trial, site was adequate, nothing special. Water and 20 amp. hookup in a large gravel parking lot under large light. A little pricey for what services were provided.

Alexis Bloomfeldt

The grounds were great as was the stay.

Sandra Kinney-Loter

It work's for an overnight fairground event. A little tight for long vehicles. Parked on white fence. Biggest problem is how busy the parking lot gets just feet from your door. Appreciate the on-site RV parking - although it is pretty expensive for just water and electric with no amenities.

Campground Response

Thank you for your review. This was definitely a busy weekend. We have 3 different events going on.

Bonnie Mizera

The staff was wonderful, especially Juda who helped our group with the RV Parking. Everything was clean and plenty of containers for trash. We love being able to camp close to our trials. 4th year returning happy camper!

Debra Saxton

We were here from Arizona to settle my parent’s estate and received the kindest, most compassionate assistance each time our circumstances changed. The fairgrounds were quiet, clean, & secure. Connie & Judah were so understanding & gave us one thing less to worry about. Thank you!

The pole we used in the South Parking area had a faulty GFI thing that prevented us from plugging in our RV successfully. We finally managed to get a regular extension cord to work so that we could use a small space heater but spent the first night with no heat. There was no 30 Amp service anywhere that we could find and our adapter kept blowing the circuit. Very frustrating.

I had unexpected change of plans when a tire went flat in Chehalis. The car I have needed the replacement tires ordered so I spent four extra days there. The fairgrounds offered tent Camping with electric so I tried that. It turned out to b a lot of fun. This is off season with some rain and no other campers around. The bathrooms r excellent, the staff around r very helpful and friendly, the site itself was just a space on a lawn but flat, good power, ez to stake. It was better than expected with some good places to eat nearby like Vicki's Salvadoran or the quesadilla factory which is like a pizzeria (great prices there ). All in all definitely a winner

I attended swap meet and reserved a tent camping space ahead of time. On the day of the meet I went to the office to clarify where my reserved site was located. I was told that I needed to enter through North parking lot to find the site. Near dark I went to that gate only to discover it locked. I drove around until I found a security guard, who told me I needed to go to the trailer house. No one was at the trailer. Since it was getting dark I set up my tent in a gravel parking. Not happy since the tent camping spot I was supposed to get cost Me $25, and others in the parking lot paid nothing.
