Private Camping near Atlanta Motor Speedway

While we've been to Atlanta many times we either stayed at my sister's or camped on speedway property.  HOWEVER there are Pop Odom's around the track.  We parked off 19/41 on Oak Rd. across from the track so we would be on the same side of the highway that we need to head home from.

There is private camping off Bear Creek.  There are a few houses that actually sit smack dab in the middle of Speedway property.  

Bo Jack RV Campground

LIVE BAND on Friday and Saturday!  VENDORS WELCOME 678-640-9000 ask for Randy.  Please leave a message if he doesn't answer.  He has electrical hook up spots and tent camping available.  On the front of his property is a ton of vendors.  His property is extremely close to the shuttle stop and within a block to the track showers.

CAMPING ON ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY PROPERTY

BLACK FLAG FROM The Marker Family: get exact directions for the speedway camping-we were at the champion campground and there was no one around to give directions.  we arrived on Thursday evening-darkthirty traveled around the parking lot three times before we finally stopped got out and had to ask how to get into the campsite-you could see campers/trailer but all the gates were chained ---
bring lots of blocks if its been raining-we had a hardtime leveling our 28 ft trailer, as the ground was drenched-apparently it had been raining steady for a couple of days-

GREEN FLAG FROM BRENDA B., CANADA: Atlanta has to be the best camping for a tenter yet it's 40$ for week has full bathroom w/ showers unreserved come early though (no later than thurs) it's close too track (no hills like Bristol) has great fan activities (at day and older at night) and friendly people. worth every penny.

SHOWERS, FREE WATER AND RV DUMPING STATION

The first road off Petty Blvd. turns onto Speedway Property.  Unreserved tent camping is on your left and East Turn Reserved Camping on your right.  The Shower House & restrooms are located at the corner of the next intersection at the end of unreserved camping.  Across the road from it is free water and RV dumping.  It is located in front of the East Turn Reserved Camping.

Another RV dump station in the unreserved camping off Speedway Blvd.

Also there is a Shower House & restrooms are located further down this same road right after it intersects with Inner Perimeter Rd. in the Free Parking lot on the right.  Near the main entrance.
GREEN FLAG:  Man on Man are Bruton's shower houses the best!  20 HOT showers with each having a dressing areas and 27 toilets.  Places to plug in hair dryers.  HEATED!  Also, some of the hand dryers are mounted up high so you can use them to dry your hair....

There is another Free Water Station and RV Dump Station outside of Turn 1 (on the road coming in from entrance M beside the free parking lot.)

INFIELD dump station near the infield bathroom/shower building in Turns 1 & 2.
There is also a large restroom and shower house in turn 3.

All the Rest areas in Georgia on Interstate 20 have RV Dump Stations.  Not sure about I-75 or I-85 but we will be having our pit crew check it out on the way down.

On the interstates and at Mile Post shown are dump stations:
I-16 MP 44 E, MP 46 W, (both closed for fall 2006 race)
I-20 MP 103 E, MP 108 W, MP 182 E, W, MP 201 W
I-75 MP 47 N, MP 48 S, MP 76 S, MP 85 N, MP 118 S, MP 108 N, MP 179 S, MP 308 N, MP 319 S
I-85 MP .5 N, MP 176 S UPDATE: I just wanted to let you know that I read in Hot Lanter paper today that they are closing all rest areas on I-85 except the one in Hart County coming into the state from SC.  This they say due to budget constraints and heightened criminal activity.
I-95 MP 41 S
I-475 MP 8 N

If you are on I85 going south there is a Flying J at exit 205 that has free RV dump stations....better than waiting in line at the track

Because of this we have coined a few new slogans for Georgia:
Georgia, the kind and gentle state.  We take crap from everyone.
Georgia, the best peaches grown with the best fertilizer.
Georgia the flush me state.

H2O 2 YOU

Need water brought to you?  These guys bring water to your RV and fill up your tank whether you are outside the track or in the infield.
Give them a call and tell'em Laidback Racing sent you.

INDEPENDENT VENDORS

Vendors are also located on a piece of private property right in the middle of race track property, Bo-Jacks Campground. From US 41 & 19, go west on Bear Creek Road. when you come to the clear parking area on the left.. TURN LEFT on Turnipseed Road which is towards track.

In between the Waffle House & Wendys is a Shopping Center (on the corner of 19/41 and 20) where there are a boatload of independent vendors.

UPDATE FROM US:There are also vendors located at M & M BISCUITS  (770) 897-9992  229 N HIGHWAY 41, HMPTN  This is across the street from the Speedway between Oak St. & Woolsey Rd.

Also they are scattered along Hwy. 19/41 at Gas Stations and convenience stores.

Independent Vendors also located outside of turns 3 & 4 behind the East Turn Grandstands on the lefthand side of Petty Blvd.

NOT INDEPENDENT VENDORS BUT A DEAL ON RACE STUFF FROM JEFF & AMY:
A shop we found by accident in Calhoun off I-75N.  It is in an outlet mall beside the interstate.  They sell all kinds of clothes( Vanity Fair, HealthTex, Lee) but have a great selection of Chase Authentics at half price. It's called VF Factory Outlet.  It's well worth the stop if you need a break after the traffic.

FROM JOANIE: Directly next door to Rusty's 56 w hwy 81, McDonough GA, is a Comfort Inn Motel. Across from Rusty's on GA20 is a new Holiday Inn Express, also.
I would not recommend going to any motels or bars in Riverdale, Jonesboro, Lovejoy, or Stockbridge. Those areas are no longer safe at night, in my opinion. I used to work as  a 911 dispatcher and those areas have deteriorated and are not safe after dark. During the day, driving thru, it's fine, but staying overnight or going to the bars are risky for visitors.

WHAT TO DO
RACETRACKS NEARBY

Local short track racing is the best!  On the weekends that the big boys are in Town the local short tracks have drivers from all over come & it's their big deal.  Remember, we've seen the 3 Earnhardt kids at Myrtle Beach Speedway in legend and modified cars before they were probably old enough for a real drivers license.
