Ambulance crews were called to the site after a 999 call from a mobile telephone saying that a man had suffered a cardiac arrest.
Details of the deceased and the cause of death have yet to be released by police.
West Meadows was closed to the public on Thursday as police investigated the scene and interviewed people at the site.
The nine-and-a-half-acre site is the only location for travellers, which was set up after a major campaign to find them a permanent home.
