Over the years, We have stayed at the Georgia National Fairgrounds many, many times. We have been there for the FMCA National Rally, Dog Agility competitions and also stopping on our way to/from Florida. A lot of people are not aware that this is a fully staffed (24 hours a day) site that is excellent for Big Rigs with full 50amp power, water and sewer.
There is not a ton to do here but if you need a safe inexpensive spot on your travels North or south it can be counted on as a great place to go.
The Following is a video we shot with the Drone of the Fairgrounds
Site quality = 4/5
Most of the spots are based on grass but underneath the grass is a hard level of crushed slate so even in the wettest times you do not sink in. This is not necessarily true at the FMCA National Rally when there are thousands of Motorhomes there but during normal times at the powered sites they are great. Open and expansive.
50 percent of the sites are both 30 amp and 50 amp and the rest are only 30 amp
Most sites have water and pumpout..
Amenities = 1/5
Unless there is an event going on there is not much to do here but if you are looking for a great in/out spot it is great
Location = 5/5
For its purpose right off the highway as a stop going North/South it fits the bill.
When getting off the highway – you will go to the back of the facilities to get in. Essentially it is the east side of the fairgrounds. You will check in and a guard will take you to your spot. You will follow him on his golf cart.
Pet friendliness = 5/5
If you have Animals, this is a great place big open places to walk the dogs, even ponds to play in. They do have a on-leash rule but it is not really enforced.
Overall rating = 4/5
BONUS ALERT = Great safe stopping spot going north/South
This is a great spot if you need a place to stop when heading North/South. Gated and protected with very flat spots and full Hookups
- There is a Wal-Mart and Kroger one exit north of the Park (Approximately 2 miles)
- Wifi is free in the main Building. You can also just get near the building the Wifi is called “Public Free and the Passwords is “GUESTPASS”
- Right outside the Fairgrounds is a great Cafeteria owned by Mennonites called The Oil Lamp. We eat there every time we are in Perry. Food is great. It is not open on Fridays and Sunday (I think)
- Another great restaurant with good home cooking is The Swanson House
