“It's all about the location”

Reviewed Sep 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We wanted to camp somewhere within a reasonable distance of a couple of our favorite breweries and the fairground was reasonably priced, and with plenty of sites so we had no problem getting a site on a Friday in late June. No, it isn't very scenic, and it's quite dusty when cars go past or the wind blows hard, which it did one day we ... more

“It just gets worse each year”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2017

Overall Rating

Complete lack of staffing. The campground is trashed by local vagrants taking advantage of no staff to remove them. Sheriff was there three times in the week we camped. Showers were filthy with snot and blood all over the walls and dirty clothes piles. That is if you can get in the bathroom/shower building because they change the code ... more

“OK for short stays but gets muddy if it rains”

Reviewed Jul 09, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here in May 2015 for a couple of weeks to be close to family and friends. We loved the affordability of the place, but it's little more than a dirt parking lot with hookups (W/E). You can choose to dry camp, hook up to electric only or electric/water, each level up is an additional $5 (so $15, $20, $25) and you are limited to... more

“The least expensive option in the greater Denver area”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2017

Overall Rating

The sign says there's a 14 day limit per year. It appears there are people staying longer but they were nice enough. It's $25 for electric and water and $20 for just electric or water and $15 for no hookups but they are almost all the same sites so I guess it's on the honor system? Everything in this area is like a $50 minimum so we we... more

“Terribly mismanaged”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Horrible place! Quite a few here are long term and there are some pretty trashy sites. Your space is barely wide enough to put slides out without hitting your neighbor. Only 8 spaces are long, and they are hard to get because half are taken by people staying for a while. Sites are all gravel and pretty uneven. Quiet time is 9 to 6 but... more

“Close to breweries, restaurants, and fun things”

Reviewed Jan 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We visited Longmont in August of 2016 and camped at the Boulder County Fairground. This is not a scenic place to stay as it is just a parking lot within the county fairgrounds. Some of the spots are shaded, some are not, some have water & electric, some just electric, and some no hook-ups at all. The upside is that it is affordable... more

“Desolate in November”

Reviewed May 10, 2015

Overall Rating

It had snowed several times by early November the year I stayed here, way back in the 2009. I sipped whisky from inside of my VW Bus, hoping to stay warm but not that kind of warm where you're actually freezing and die in the night. I don't believe that I did, but perhaps I am just dreaming all of this life since in a never ending sing... more

“A nice central place to the Front Range”

Reviewed Apr 09, 2015

Overall Rating

This is my 2nd time staying in Boulder County Fairgrounds. The first was brief due to a very rude woman operating the campgrounds back in 2012. This time around (in 2015) the workforce was much more polite and welcoming. There are a variety of sites, from large pull-thru's capable of handling the 40+ foot rigs to back-in sites of va... more
