Camping Availability and Fees for everyone

  • Camping is available at the race site on Friday and Saturday night.
  • No reservations are required and while there is room for everyone, we do ask that you camp as space efficiently as possible. Leave the circus tent at home.
  • Camping check-in will open at NOON on Friday, close at 11:00 pm on Friday, and reopen Saturday morning from 7:00 to 9:00 am.
  • Camping fees are $10 and 3 canned food items per person. Kids under 13 camp free. All campers must pay whether in tents or RVs/trailers. Each paid camper will be issued a wristband upon entering the venue. Racers and non-racers alike pay the camping fee to offset the costs of insurance, road and trail repairs, trash and recycling removal, water, and porta-potties.

RVs and Trailers
Please note that there are no hook-ups for RV parking at the venue. Your RV will have to be self-contained (electric, water, septic, cable TV). All campers, RVs and trailers that plan to use generators must set-up in the far lot, which will be marked clearly when you arrive. Additionally, any RVs and Trailers over 30 feet must pay an additional $20 due to limited space within the venue.
