Not much has changed since my post dated July 2015. Here are some updates. You can stay at the fairgrounds up to 7 days, and cannot return until 14 days later. The price has gone up in July to $22 + a "convenience fee" of 3% if you pay by credit card. There is no mention of a convenience fee on their web site. The front office is open Monday thru Friday - closed on the weekend. The electrical pedestals look new and the voltage was good - hovering around 122 volts. Sites 1, 2, 3 and 20 had 50/30/15 amp electrical service. All other sites had 30/15 amp service. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Wi-Fi is not available within the campground. Verizon hot spot and phone reception was good. The campground needed mowing when we arrived and was not mowed 7 days later and the trash was picked up only once. The grass when we left was knee high. Every day we had seen the same local residents walking their dogs (off leash) within the campgrounds. Some residents picked up after their dogs, some did not. The folks in the front office told us that there was security 7/24, however, we never saw them. There is a bathroom with (3) push button showers per gender. These bathrooms were clean but not very appealing. The bathrooms are located near the front office. The office staff will unlock the bathrooms if needed. There are vault toilets within the campground. Water spigots are located throughout the fairgrounds but not within the RV park. Trains blow their horns throughout the night. Some days more than others. Site 20 might be difficult to leave the park because you have to make a sharp left hand turn. This site might be best for smaller rigs. We would come back to this park. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

No landscaping, just weeds that needed to be mowed. The picnic table was in such bad shape we couldn't even sit at it. There was a pit toilet and showers were available near the office but we did not use them. There were no signs indicating the RV park once we entered the fairgrounds; luckily I had gotten directions when I made the reservation. We were assigned a site when reserving but they said if we found a better site to just let them know. Our fresh water tank was full but there were water spigots available in the parking lot. No WiFi and OTA television was sketchy. For the price it was a good place to park while visiting family. We camped at Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Prior review still applies, but to reiterate a few points: Make sure you fill up your water in the parking lot where you register. If you have a large vehicle, you may want to shop around for the best site before committing to one. We had an end one with a good drop to into; it was pretty level once in. Fire pits, picnic tables and trash barrel at each site. When we pulled in, we were disappointed with the depressing landscape of mostly dirt and some weeds, but there was hardly anyone else around, the view was amazing, and it was very quiet except for the occasional train. Within minutes though, we were loving it. Locals walk their dogs (almost all off-leash) here resulting in more much more activity than just the campers. Excellent location for seeing the Helena sights. Loved being able to do a loop around the fairgrounds with our dogs. If you've got kids, there is a pond where children-only can fish and a great huge playground. If full, then I can imagine it feeling much more cramped. We camped at Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

The review of this campground is slightly distorted since we were the only campers in the park.

The campground is way in the back of the fairgrounds and a little difficult to find. Basically follow the racetrack but you will need to register at the front office first. They will turn on the electricity.

Some of the interior roads within the fairground have pot holes but the interior road within the campground is OK. All of the sites are back-ins on packed gravel. The length of the sites varies as does the electrical service. Some are 20/30 while a few are 20/30/50 amp service. The utility box was situated on the appropriate side. Half of the sites are angled on the blind side. The front office has a map indicating the length of each site and their amperage. Some sites are more leveled then others.

There is water available within the fairgrounds but not at the campground. There is no dump station within the fairgrounds. A dump station is available at the Exxon station (I-15, Exit 194).

There are two pit toilets within the campground. Each site has a fire pit and a picnic table. There are no showers and no Wi-Fi. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well within the campground. There was some rail road noise at night.

The freeway was about 2 miles away and about 3 miles from town. We would come back to this campground if we were in the area. We were in a 32 foot rig. We camped at Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
