We stayed here because we had been evacuated from a nearby campground due to flooding rains. It's first-come first-served, but once there you can pay for as many nights as you want, 14-day limit. Or you pay by the day. They accept credit cards now. There are a few full-hookup sites on pavement, and many more around the edges of that area on dirt. ALL of the dirt ones were closed when we were there, and for good reason with all the rain they had been having. The electrical hookup is 20-amp unless you pay $70 for the duration of your stay for them to turn on the 30 or 50-amp. Not bad if you're staying the 14 days, but we weren't sure so we didn't opt for that. We were able to run the generator until 10 pm at night, and plugged in a heavy extension cord so we could run a space heater. It also ran the TV, coffee pot, and computer, and allowed us to recharge our devices. Not bad! The price is a good deal compared to other RV parks in the area, where you can expect to pay $55 - $255 per night. There are a few state parks in the area, but you have to be small to fit in those. The fee is lower, but the $15 daily entrance fee puts it right up there equal to or higher, without full hookups at most of them. Check the website for major events that might cause the RV area to be closed to the public. Enter at gate 5 off of Arlington - the security entrance. Phone number is posted if gate is closed. We camped at Orange County Fair & Events Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Only 16 miles from Disneyland. Easy freeway access, but no noise as it's far enough away.

RV, full hook ups in OC? WHAT? I've lived here all my life (59 years) and just NOW heard of this! Am spending the year on the road in my RV, and came home to see family. Where to go? OC Fairgrounds? WHAT?

Security is wonderful. Found my spot, and a Christmas shopping show? WHAT? Entertainment, too? Great experience. $25 dry camping, $40 with hook ups. Safe, clean, close to everything.

No, it is not a park. No frills. But great dog walks (put them on a leash folks... is that too much to expect? And for Godsake, pick up your mess) and just hangin out. We camped at Orange County Fair & Events Center in a Motorhome.

Fee is cash only. No reservations. Use Gate 5 on Arlington. Check in at the Safety and Security office. Must have your ID and proof of insurance for all vehicles & rigs entering the grounds. Must pay each morning, before 10am for each days stay. Very helpful, pleasant people in the office. Be sure and check their website for upcoming events since you will not be able to camp there unless involved with the event. Asphalt, open sites. Very good value for the area and convenient to many attractions. the park is very quiet since it is not located too close to freeways. We camped at Orange County Fair & Events Center in a Fifth Wheel.
