RVers and tent-campers alike can feel a little overwhelmed when it comes to booking a NASCAR campsite. Infield or off the track? Grass or gravel? Hookups or dry camping? Though it may be overwhelming at first, you can ask yourself a few questions to quickly narrow down your choices. Here are some tips on choosing a NASCAR campsite.
Tips on Choosing a NASCAR Campsite
- Find out how much room you need. If you’re driving a 40 foot ride, you obviously won’t fit in a 20 by 30 foot site. Make sure you know your rig’s dimensions to help narrow down some sites.
- Do you need hookups? NASCAR tracks aren’t known for luxurious amenities like hookups, but many tracks do have grounds with hookups available. If you really need electric or water service, look only at grounds they provide utility hookups.
- How is the view of the race itself? Different sites will have different views of the action so make sure you choose wisely.
- What is your price range? Price is the largest deciding factor when it comes to many RVers. Find out what your budget is and go from there. NASCAR sites can range anywhere from around 10 dollars to multiple thousands of dollars, making price a good tool to locate your grounds.
- How much partying do you plan to do or are quiet hours important to you? Tracks like Talladega Superspeedway have grounds with no quiet hours for the all-night parties but also have family-friendly grounds that have strict guidelines on quiet hours.
- How much walking do you intend on doing? Some grounds are right in the infield of the track while others may be more than a mile outside of it. If you aren’t too mobile you need to make sure to choose a campsite that won’t ruin your weekend from too much walking.
- What type of RV will you be driving? No sense in booking your teardrop trailer on grounds that only allow self-contained RVs on this.
- Do you have a preference on site type such as grass, concrete, or gravel?
Answering these questions is a great way to get started on the path to the perfect NASCAR RV campground. If you aren’t sure the answer to a question you should always call the track’s hospitality line to make sure you have the best site and stay possible.
