CAMPING NEAR DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY:

From LaidbackRacing:  We went to Dover for the fall 07 race.  Every business on Dupont Highway has parking and camping.  The Wal-Mart (of course) Lowe's,  A shopping Center right in front of the track/casino (in front of the back stretch) and a ton more. We did not have a reservation, just went in cold and took no time to find a spot. 

We stayed at the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village 866 North Dupont Hwy. Dover De 19901 ph: 302-734-1618.  fax: 302.734.0475  They take reservations or just pull up.  We got there around 8:00 Saturday and we got a nice shaded spot next to a fence.  They filled up with parking about 10:00 on Sunday.  They have a paved and a grass lot.  They have flushable toilets inside the Museum that they open from 6:30 AM - 10:00 PM.  There was a BBQ guy setup in front selling breakfast than lunch/dinner.  Nice place.   This was about a 10-15 minute walk across the street to turn 3. 

Dover Mall 1365 North DuPont Highway Dover,DE  302-734-0415

FROM LITTLE RICHARD: Coming in the main gate to your right is a shopping center.  We set up our tent behind the store along the fence which seperates the parking (where they park vendors) and the campers out front.  20 bucks a night.I think this is the address: 1091 North Dupont Highway, Dover, DE 19901

UPDATE from Clayton: Lots of camping space around the track, but rates are getting ridiculous.  You need to have reservations at least a year in advance.  Some sites are more flexible than others regarding tent camping and prices are variable.  Some lots are easy to get in while others have waiting lists over 500 names long.

FROM TODD: TENT CAMPING - found a place about a mile or 2 from the track, called Davis campground, its someone with a decent size lot, pretty friendly people. turn on to Leipsic,  go past the track, go over the bridge turn left towards lots 8 and 9, drive past lots 8 and 9 go around the bend, just a little further then that on the left side. Its set back in so you need to keep an eye out for it.  It was $30 a night, also had a trolly Saturday and Sunday you could ride for $2, cut the walk in half maybe more.

There was also a place just past lot 9 on the RIGHT side before the bend, not sure about price or anything like that. It is a wooded lot right along the road.

RV packages available at Delaware State University during race weekends in Dover, Thursday through Sunday.Call 302-857-7822 Debbie Russo, for information.
0.5 Dover Mall (302-734-0415) right next to the track rents to RV
FROM JIM C: We use the Delaware State University lot for our weekend RV parking spot.  It does cost $200 for the weekend (RV plus Tow Vehicle).  If you bring another vehicle, they charge $35 per day for the additional vehicle.  Your site has plenty of room to park your RV, tow vehicle and another vehicle.  You also have plenty of room to put out a small pop up tent to host a party in and not get cramped in like other tracks.  They do have a "Quiet Time" (11PM until 6AM), but folks run their generators most of the night when it is hot, and it really isn't big deal.  Campus Security is always about.  As far as water hook ups, they do come around several times a day (even after the race on Sunday) to pump out and fill up fresh water.  They charge a flat $50 to empty and fill.  If you just empty they charge $30.  If it is just a fresh water fill up, they charge $20.  Delaware State gives you the name and number of who to contact for those services.  You do have to enter into a contract with the University.  It is recommended to do this several months in advance as spots do fill up quickly.  As far as distance, it is a 10 to 15 walk across Rt 13 to the track.  From the campground, you are facing Turn 3.  Shopping (ACME/Home Depot/) is across the highway (easy to get across at the crosswalks).  They do have Police at the crosswalks before/during/after the races.
From what we understand, Dover Mall offers the same services.  Only difference, you park on blacktop at the Mall, and grass at the University.

DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY CAMPING

From Jim:  to get a reserved RV spot in Lot 2, you are forced to buy a weekend ticket package. For June its Truck, Busch and Cup and Sept its Busch North, Busch and Cup. Plus they upped the price of the spot. http://www.doverspeedway.com/track/parking.php I do need to say that the total package is slightly discounted. I think its works out to about $40 that you save off of face value for the 3 races.

Per our Recon officer, Navy Paul,  the speedway camps you in fields that they own surrounding the speedway.  No hookups.  They run the shuttle bus from the camp grounds to the casino and the track. 

UPDATE FROM AJ: The good: We arrived Saturday morning at about 10AM and there was still plenty of room in Lot 10 for RV parking.  I was nervous that it might be full since we were arriving relatively late.  It is the furthest lot away from the track, but they run school buses to the track all the time so it was not a problem.  Also, a big bonus is they spread everybody out more in Lot 10.  Everybody was crammed in very tight in the other lots, but we had plenty of room to spread out.
The helicopter pad is at the back of Lot 10, so you can catch a glimpse of the owners arriving and leaving the speedway which was cool. It is a long drive from the front gate to where they park you on Lot 10, but after the Sunday race they open a back gate so it was super easy to get out.
The bad: some people ignored the generator quiet hours of 11PM to 6AM and ran their generators all night.  If it was hot I would understand the need for A/C, but the weather was cool with a nice breeze so there really was no excuse for keeping everybody up with the noise and fumes
through the night.
As somebody already mentioned, water fill up trucks charge $1.50/gallon.  Make sure you fill up before you leave!
The ugly: While everybody was enjoying the cup race on Sunday, a bunch of the RV's around us were ransacked.  Fortunately, we didn't get hit.  I was very careful to put everything away and lock it up before we left. Generators were stolen, and at least one RV was forcibly broken into and everything of value was stolen out of it.  The owners said there were some people hanging around the day before that "made friends" with them and checked out their setup inside and out and after what
happened they suspect that they were actually there to find out what they had in their RV so they could steal all their stuff on Sunday. Just be careful about strangers that have a lot of questions about your stuff!!  Most people are friendly but some are looking to take advantage of you.

UPDATE: NO TENT CAMPING ON SPEEDWAY PROPERTY...THAT SUCK'S

A FEW THINGS TO MENTION ABOUT THE TRACK

BLACK FLAG FROM AL G.:  No tents allowed on speedway property.  No showers
Most of the RV sites are only accessable through a one-vehicle-wide gate, creating traffic jams both on entry and exit. "Floor" under the stands is dirt, and when it rains, mud.  Security does not enforce quiet hours, and there are rowdies in the campgrounds whose purpose in life seems to be to make sure that other campers don't get any sleep.

A FEW WORDS OF WISDOM FROM GINO, ALLENTOWN PA.:.......go out and buy better walking shoes then what you currently own! some areas for camping are over 1.5 miles away and you're still on raceway property......go early for camping....you may camp up to 2 weeks before the race!.....wed is a good day to plan on arriving or you will be marching from the sticks to get to the track....they have bus shuttles.......take your own water to the track as the guys selling it from the truck actually sell it metered from a tank for $1.25 a gallon for your motor home. bummer if you only got 20 bucks for the water tank like I had! quite time is enforced at 11pm....
this track is 1 of the only ones left that allow golfcarts,mopeds, gas barstools, anything you can get a motor on they allow in the big camping area......
there is no place to hide inside this track if you’re bumming out about the sunshine or rain! live with it!
