Northwest MI Fairground Traverse City MI

Northwest Michigan Fairground, 3606 Blair Townhall Rd., Traverse City MI. About 120 sites, 30/50 amp electric only. There are 6 water fill stations, but all but one were not threaded. I used a water bandit to add water to our tank, didn't see the threaded one till the next day. There is a dump station. All sites are back in on gravel and grass, fairly level. But site are back to back, so we pulled thru. There were only 3 other RV's there when we came in and had two more join us the next day. $20. a night, a great deal in an otherwise expensive area.  This is a no frills campground. There were two "job johnnies". The manager told us there are showers down in the fairgrounds, but a very  long walk from the campground. Self contained is the way to go here. Fairly open, very few trees. TV over the air, all major stations. Open for satellite. Night; only light was one at the entrance, otherwise very dark. Also very quiet. Did see a few picnic tables and fire rings by the office, but not at sites. They are looking for a campground host. About 4-5 miles for several grocery stores. Many restaurants in 3-4 miles. A good stop to tour the area and about 40 miles to Sleeping Bear Dune National Shoreline. Many wineries with in 20-30 miles. A casino about 20 miles. Not sure what its like at fair time. There was a horse show when we were there, but we never heard a sound from the activities, but we were at the very far end away from the fair area.  Again this is a "NO FRILLS" campground, but it worked very well for us.
