The Best Stock Car Races for Camping

Published on April 14th, 2022

One of the best ways to visit a stock car race is to camp out. Bringing along your RV means you won’t have to hunt for a hotel and you’ll have all your living essentials with you. Plus, you’re right there for all the action so you won’t miss a thing!

How to Camp at a Race

Make Reservations

Stock car races are popular events with limited camping sites, so book a reservation as early as possible. If you missed out on the track’s onsite camping options, search the local area for RV parks and campgrounds.

You Might Be Dry Camping

Many times, camping at races only includes a spot in to park your rig. Water, electric and sewer hookups may be available at some racetrack campgrounds, but it’s not guaranteed. So be prepared to dry camp! The track’s website will have all the information about camping, including if electric and water are available or included in your reservation. If you’re going to be dry camping, fill your fresh tanks, dump your gray tanks, and stock up on essentials before you arrive.

Don’t have your own rig to bring to a race? RVshare has you covered with great rentals all across the U.S.
