California, Orange County Fair Campground.  Also called the OC Fair.  The campground is located behind the Pacific Amphitheater at the OC Fairgrounds.  Easy freeway access. 


Southbound on Interstate-55 in the town of Costa Mesa, take the Newport Blvd/Fair grounds exit.  After a few blocks, go right onto Fair Drive.  At this point you are at the front entrance to the fair.  You will need to go around to the back entrance.  Continue west on fair drive(past the big fair sign and entrance) and take a right on Fairview Road.  Go up another block and take a right onto Arlington Drive.  Check-in is at the security office so it's best to control nude east on Arlington up to Gate 5.  Take a right into,Gate 5 and stop at the security office. 

Note: The Campbase map pin is accurate for the location of the security office.  The campground is inside the fairgrounds just to the west. 


Orange County Fairgrounds Campground is open all year with approximately 58 RV only camp spots, no tenting.  A dump station is available in the campground.  Most camp spots do not have trees.  A restroom and showers are available for campers.  There is also a small outdoor pavilion with picnic tables.  Camp spots do not have fire rings or picnic tables.  Cellular service was good from this location.  There is no campground WiFi.  This campground could be quite a bit of fun during a concert at the Pacific Amphitheater or during a county fair.  It's just a few hundred feet from the Pacific Amphitheater so, if you are looking for peace and quiet, this would not be the place.  At different times there are farm shows, gun shows and fairs so, depending on when you stay it could be quite fun. 

Length of stay: Campers may stay up to a maximum 14 consecutive days per visit.  There must be a break of 7 days between visits with a maximum of 60 days per year.  

Air conditioners are not allowed on the 20 amp service.  

The fairgrounds have 24 hour security.
