There are numerous places to stay in Darlington, SC but only a few that offer camping near Darlington Raceway. We’ve done the research so you don’t have to but keep in mind that these spots fill up fast so get yours reserved soon before they’re all gone!
Camping at the Track
Camping at the track offers something more than just the thrill of the race. You’ll be able to tailgate with other race fans and enjoy events in a way that no other fans can! Geico has sponsored a handful of areas both infield and out for people to set up camp right at the track.
There are four different infield camping areas. These areas include Geico Red, Green, and Yellow, and an RV Park. You get up close views of all the action with these sites! The red, green, and yellow areas all offer 15’x30’ sites and have enough room for your camper and an additional vehicle. The red site is located between turns 3 and 4 and include infield admission for two. Yellow and Green include 4 infield admission passes. The RV park offers spots that are 15’x40’ with electrical and water hook ups and include admission to the infield for two.
There are other options that aren’t on the infield if that’s a little too up close and personal for you. Outside you’ll find another RV Park as well as a Geico campground for tent campers. The Geico RV Park has two areas, both which are named after NASCAR heroes. Petty Blvd offers 20’x40’ spots with water in a centralized location and Pearson Blvd offers 20’x50’ spots but you’ll need to fill your tank before you arrive. Located right behind the Darlington Raceway Credential building is the Geico Campground for tent campers with sites that are 15’x30’. Tent camping is not permitted in any RV areas so ensure that if you need at tent spot you book it as soon as possible as these spots are limited.
Located just a short drive from the track, Swamp Fox has over 60 sites available, 30 of which are pull through. Sites are 30’x60’ and offer different amenities depending on the site you choose. The majority of them have full hookups while a handful only have water or electric. Modern restrooms with showers and laundry facilities are available to all campers and you will also enjoy a whirlpool, pond, rec hall, horseshoes, and a playground for the kids!
