Fair Hill Campground

Located on the grounds of the Northern Wisconsin State Fair in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin our campground's name, Fair Hill, is derived from the Ski Slide that was located in the Leinenkugel's field in the 1940s. Many locals recall skiing and sledding down Fair Hill Slide, located next to the Fairgrounds! Fair Hill Campgrounds are available to the public from May through September.

Your stay at Fair Hill Campgrounds will be unique due to our convenient location as we are within walking distance to; Historic Downtown Chippewa Falls, Leinenkugel Brewery Tours, Mason Shoe Outlet Store, Irvine Park & Zoo, and the public pool area as well as being located on the Old Abe bike trail that will take you for miles and miles along the Chippewa River. We know you will enjoy the area and Thank You for choosing Fair Hill Campgrounds for your next stay in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
