Camping is allowed at the track free of charge during the North/South week and weekend. No hookups are available. The camping areas will be marked and site maps with the camping areas marked will be posted at the track. You can begin marking camping spots at 12:00 PM on Saturday August 5th and at any time during the week after that. All camping spots are first come first served. 

  • NEW FOR 2017:
    • In an attempt to control some of the problems we have had in past years with running out of room in the camping areas, we are putting in a new rule for 2017. Beginning Friday August 11th at 12 PM, all marked off campsites must be occupied by some sort of camper. From that point, any empty sites will be opened up for anyone to use. Also, those who mark off excessive areas and do not use all of the space they mark, may be asked to reduce their area. The goal of this new rule is not to force people into smaller areas, or prevent people from saving spots for friends. The camping areas are one of our biggest logistical problems every year at the event, and many times, people take up way too much room, or mark off spots that never get used. This leads to us having to designate more and more areas off for camping. With us only having so much space for camping and car parking, something needs to be done to alleviate the problem. With this new rule, we realize that there will be situations that arise that we cannot foresee. We will be taking each situation on a case by case basis and may need to make changes as we go. We ask for everyone's cooperation in this. Please remember, camping is free. For that to continue, everyone needs to be considerate in the space they use. 


Please contact us at to reserve a vending spot. Due to sponsor commitments, vending space will be limited this year. Those showing up without reservations will be turned away.
