Fairgrounds camping is located on the west edge of Hampton, close enough to shopping and activities but conveniently tucked away for quiet relaxation. It has been host to larve RV rallies and music festivals. Facilities include new bathrooms, showers, over 200 spacious electrical hook-ups and a dump station. The Convention Center can be made available for use by large groups. Whether you’re looking for a site for a camping group, passing through or plan an extended stay, the fairgrounds is a clean, economically priced campground. Groups can contact the fair office for available dates.
