The fairgrounds have about 50 spaces. Most sit sideways on a slope, which can make it hard to get level. The forty spaces on the slope are in a semi gravel lot. Ten spaces are in the paved area which is on a level surface. All spaces have water and electrically, The have a dump on site of campers using the grounds. You are restricted for no more than 14 day stay. The restrooms and the showers facilities are very good.

Jeffco fairground is one of the few sites in the Denver metro area. Sites are fine but not great. Location is great ust off of I70 and 6th Ave, easy access to Denver and surrounding area. Close to light rail.We plan staying there again. There are odd rules to gain access: you must show vehicle registration and insurance papers to get in the CG. Electric pillars are padlocked until you get to your site. Apparently a zealous county attorney demands these things so be prepared. This slows down the registrtion process quite a bit. IMHO the best sites are the parallel sites on the West side of the CG. There is a very nice playground and picnic area plus a good short walking path.

A stay in this area wasn't on our itinerary. But when our truck needed extensive repair after failing to negotiate the pass at Genesse Hill, this is where AAA towed us. The "campground" itself it nothing we would choose . . . just a gravel parking lot with no shade, with extremely narrow sites. No room for our awning, for our bar-b-q-grill, etc. Hardly a pleasant outdoor Colorado experience! I think people come here is they are touring the Denver area, or if they're going to Red Rocks. HOWEVER, the reason I'm giving it an Excellent review is b/c of the staff. When we arrived at the entrance with our tow truck, the sign indicated they were full. However, we were pretty desperate and thought we'd ask anyway. The camp host at the booth (Theresa) was immediately sympathetic to our plight and said they sometimes have emergency spots. She found us one and helped make our check-in as expedient as possible. From then on, Theresa and the other staff (I believe there were 3 in all) were aware of our predicament - that we were trying to get our 5th Wheel over to Glenwood Springs, but our truck wouldn't be ready for nearly 2 weeks (yes, the damage was extensive!). Hiring a tow was going to be prohibitively expensive. The hosts approached another camper here, who does some mobile RV repair work in the area; they were aware that he had helped out some other travelers in distress. They shared our plight with him - this Good Samaritan is going to haul us to Glenwood Springs this weekend. In the midst of very high stress and uncertainty about what to do next, God sent these wonderful helpful people who all went above and beyond. We're very grateful. Oh - and the bathrooms/showers here are spotless!

More homeless people in junk rigs seem to be here this year. Pit bulls barking, unresponsive camp host when neighbor was warming up his ratty diesel pusher for 20 minutes polluting the air and making noise. However, sadly, Rv parking is denver is so limited that without reservations elsewhere, you may end up here. Oh, homeless people with the ratty rigs are limited, as everyone is, to 14 days in this cheap parking lot

We attend this event twice a year, Spring and Fall. The fairgrounds have many restroom facilities most with flushing toilets and running water there's plenty of parking nearby or in the fairgrounds themselves plan on walking and wearing comfortable shoes there are food vendors and food trucks scattered throughout Fairgrounds my favorite being the big bar ice cream. There's grandstand seating.
