“Unexpected Pleasure”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Camped here with other friends in a fifth wheel over Memorial Weekend.

What a great find. No crowds, beautiful pond and surroundings.

Close to amenities.

Will return someday.

Only negative was the $10 charge for a picnic table.

Lots of old trees, large spaces, very close to shopping, restaurants, bars, markets, hiking and activities. Easy access, clean restrooms with showers. No amenities but it didn't matter as there's lots to do in Grass Valley. We stayed here in a 37 foot motor home and would stay there again.

Well...the fairgrounds host the annual Nevada County Fair, as well as camping, and other events...but we went for the Fair.

The drive up is beautiful...we came from Roseville, CA. Beautiful Pines, and trees as far as the eyes can see.

The Fairgrounds are easily approached from 49. There are two shopping centers right off of 49, with places to eat...Raley's grocery, KMart, JCPenney, IHOP, Carl Jrs., Starbucks....

The fairground had tall pines...it's just beautiful. The fair was very nice today.

This is an easy drive up from the Sacramento Region via 80 through Auburn. It only took us about one hour from Roseville. I have no experience camping here, however.

We also go up to Cisco Grove campgrounds up 80 when the snow falls, near Soda Springs...and that seems like a good spot to camp....may have to get into camping!

Stayed August 2011, traveled with family

We just returned from a wedding in Grass Valley. Instead of paying $130/ night at the hotel that the wedding group suggested, we decided to look for other lodging arrangements in the area. We have a trailer and we decided to look into staying at a campground.

We booked at the NV County Fairgrounds because it was cheap, cheap, cheap. We didn't know what to expect since there weren't any photos listed on the website.

We arrived at the fairgrounds and checked-in. The area was quite large with many tall pine trees for shade. If you chose the electric & water hookups, you are parked in the shaded trees with less people parked near you. The bathrooms were clean but old. This campground is just for trailers & RVs only, there is no camp tenting available.

We were very pleased with the scene and the price.
If we ever stayed in Grass Valley again, we would stay at the NV Fairgrounds again.
