With races like the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, it’s no wonder the Kentucky Speedway is a popular one. One of the greatest things to pair up with a race is camping and there are a lot of options near Kentucky Speedway. In fact, you can camp right there at the track!
Camping at the Track
You’ll have 6 camping options at Kentucky Speedway, one of which will put you in sight of the track. The type of experience you’re looking for will determine which site you’ll want to check out. Infield camping puts you in the heart of the action! You can camp at the exterior sites that are between turn 1 and 4 or in the interior sites put you just a short walk from the fan zone and pit road! Millionaire’s Row is outside the track with a view of the grandstands and a short walk to the gates! Here you will have electrical hookups which are only found at one other site. Lakeside is the other site where you will find electrical hookups and is also in view of the grand stand but is a bit quieter than the other sites. There are three sites that are located a bus ride away but offer a more wooded and traditional type of camping. These sites include the Ponderosa Campground, Bourbon Street Campground, and Hawk’s Landing. You’re going to want to get your site booked in advance though as these sites won’t last long!
