Huge state fair campground. Sites aren't marked. Hookups don't match up (sewer may be away from electric). We were placed near the highway when there were wide open spaces farther away. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Surprisingly nice cg. There are over 600 sights but this time of year there were only about 10 units (if that many) at any one time. Amenities were none existent but the sites were very level and spacious (due to lack of other campers). We felt very safe there. High school nearby so we could hear the band practicing. We were assigned site S32 but never found that. We just pick one we like and that was that. Since we paid in advance we did not have to check-in and never saw any mgmt. But trash barrels were emptied and the sites stayed clean. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

I'm sure if you were staying here during the fair it would very different. We were using it as a base to visit the Greenbrier which is only 20 minutes away. We were one of only four units in the south RV lot and basically picked our own site. After you set up you use the tunnel to cross under the highway and pay and the fairground administrative building. We picked a site far from the highway to avoid the traffic noise but it gets very quiet at night except for the ambulances which are rushing to hospital nearby. One tip - if you're going to use the south lot, make the turn from the left lane as it can be quite tight, especially if a rig is on a site close to the road. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The fairgrounds have expanded to accommodate large rally groups. Our group parked over 700 coaches. 535 had 3 point hookups. Another 165 had 2 point hookups. Dry camping sites went on for ever. If you are planning a stop there be sure to call to ensure no large event is going on. The fairgrounds/campground are actually located south of Lewisburg. Access from the Interstate is through the town of Lewisburg. Traffic can be a bear at times. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

There are apparently several campground areas. However we stayed in the South area which provides both 30 and 50 amp service. Excellent location for touring the Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs (Greenbrier) area. There are no bathroom facilities available. We'd definitely stay there again. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for one night in September while passing through the area. The rate reflects the Good Sam price. We called the office, made our reservation, paid by credit card, and were given directions. We requested a 50 amp site and were told that those were located along the fence line. The sites are grass and the ground was a little soft from rain when we were there, but we were able to level without too much trouble. Water and sewer hook ups are available. Several of the faucets no longer had knobs to turn on/off the water, but you could turn on/off with channel locks. We actually left our channel locks there for someone else to enjoy (not intentionally). It's a no frills campground, but certainly one that serves its purpose. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

A wonderful place in a most charming town. It is a full service campground with full hookups. We came for just a drive through and stayed for several days. Lots of history in the area along with many fine old homes. We were the only ones in the South Lot, easy to move our 40' in and then to back into the 50 amp service lots. The lot is on the west side of the road, opposite to the main buildings. We would certainly return. You can call, make the reservations and pay with credit card - no need to find the administration building to pay. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is a difficult campground to rate. In the Woodall's directory it says it has 200 sites. Perhaps so but most of those are in grass fields and probably only used when there is an event at the fair grounds. I also did not see any restrooms open while we were there. We stayed in the South Lot which has full hookups and 50 amps. There are maybe 25 sites here. It too is grassy w/ pedestals in the back for electric and water. The sewer is in the back a well. We used our macerator in order to reach. We had no complaints. The ladies in the office are great. When you call for a reservation make sure you ask them for directions. The turn into the campground is easy to miss. We loved our stay in Lewisburg. There is so much to see and do and the campground is an ideal location from which to explore this beautiful part of West Virginia. We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

The first thing to find this place! Leave I-64 via Exit 169 and drive through Lewisburg on Route 219. South of Lewisburg, route 219 splits into 2 one way roads. This is actually in the town of Fairlea. The fair grounds will be on the left of the southbound road, and the campground on the right, about four-plus miles from the Interstate. The best way to identify the campground is the by the electric pedestals and perhaps one or two RV's camping here. There is a sign, but it is not very prominent. We were here in the Fall, and there was only one other camper staying here. The place is poorly lit, so plan on getting here before dark. The campground is a typical fairground campground: a field with lots of hook-ups close together. The sites are level, but grassy, so leveling blocks would be a good idea. The electrical, water and sewers all work, and in October practically no one was here so there was lots of room. I have no idea if there are showers or restrooms available. Our rate includes a 10% FMCA discount. This was an interesting experience; I would stay here again: but get here before dark! We camped at West Virginia State Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.
