Here's a link I found for camping in the Pocono area.  Some I already have listed but there are a few that I don't have listed above: CLICK HERE

POCONO RACEWAY CAMPING
Look for Joe and the Keystone Jukebox crew on the paved road in the infield about 19 to 12 spots up from the entry road...they'll be the ones with the big crowd!

FROM AL G.,No one is allowed in until 10 AM Thursday.  Security is not very friendly and they certainly aren't helpful.  When I arrived in 2003 on a Wednesday afternoon I was told the campgrounds were not open.  I drove around the area looking for a place to spend the night, ending up in a private campground.  Thursday morning I again drove around, waiting for 10 am to roll around.  Wherever I stopped on the outskirts of the track to pass the time, security would drive up and tell me that I could not park there.  They never gave me instructions or advice.  Finally a fan told me about a field where RVs were being lined up before the gates open.  I went there, got in line, and when my turn came I got in. Thanks to the fan and no thanks to security.  That field is on your left as you head towards the campground entrance.
They have rules which MUST be followed.  No pets,not even a canary in a cage.  No firewood.  No fireworks.  As you enter the gates, a security guard actually boards your RV and looks through it for illegal items and for non-ticketed people.  Some security wears sidearms.  They have showers and toilets which have attendants.  It seems to be the practice to tip these individuals.

FROM Eric G.: I have recently "Camped at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond PA. For taking the children to the races, if you are camping, If there is an option for infield camping and "outfield" camping, it seems that the Family oriented, (low party areas) are the ones on the outside of the track. We camped at Pocono for the Aug. race and Stayed in the "Family RV Grandstand" Area, and it was perfect for the 7 year old.(and us since our party days are not like they used to be). If you ask the Track when you get camping tickets, they usually will tell you where the "quit" areas are. We checked the infield out while we were there and almost every night they were still parting hard at 3:00AM

POCONO RACEWAY CAMPGROUND (570) 646-2300 EXT.167 This is listed on the track website but not sure if it is part of the speedway

THE POCONO INFIELD

FROM GINO, OUR NORTHERN RECON OFFICER: Pocono Raceway has all it's information listed on the infield admission papers. No admission until 12 PM. Thursday, although they have been letting motorhome's staging inside before 10 am the last 2 years.

Pocono infield has no showers. No water. No dump stations. No electric. No firerings. Its just you and your crew. Take everything along you will need for the whole weekend as there is no store inside or anywhere near the track and there are no passes out of the infield. If you must leave, you must repay for admission.

Security is as helpful at Pocono as they are at any other raceway. Not very. They wear sidearms? Thank God there is some kind of protection in line there. The weather seems to be playing a MAJOR factor at Pocono in recent years. Bring covers for everything you have outside that cannot withstand a direct flood. July 2004 was the worst of any storms that has ever gone through the track in its 26 year history!

Pocono allows firewood, providing you have a fireplace that does not sit directly on the grass. No fire rings are allowed. Ive seen people use a charcoal grill for this purpose! Access to the outside vendors (drivers merchandise trailers) on Pocono property is done via the infield tunnel. You must now PAY (since 2001) to have this
privledge. The armband pit pass thingy is $35. Autograph alley is no more at Pocono. The $35 gains you access to the tunnel and about 10 garage door openings for signings. I feel so privileged to pay and pay and pay while I am here for these races. Dr. Mattiolli laughs all the way to the bank. Those tunnel fees paid for his daughter's mansion directly across from the track. If you have ever driven tunnel road you more then likely have seen this shoebox of a home behind the 10 foot decorative brick walls. I believe us Bubba's call it "living rough"

....Fireworks are a definite no-no. I've seen fights break out over lit fuses dropping from fireworks, landing on someone's awning, thus burning a fuse looking hole right through it.

Fuel prices around this area are way out of line, always. They do not increase race
weekends. They are always high on top of the mountain in the middle of no-wheres-ville. Rain and mud are the issues that will disappoint even the most hardcore Na$car fan, like myself, so be very prepared for a deluge of clouds sometime during your stay infield. The mini- tornado Sunday night, midnight, in July 2004 was just what I was hoping would happen. What a treat that was! I am surprised they did not come around and ask for more money for the "extra" entertainment!

If this raceway was not really close to me here, 45 minutes away, I would never go to see a Na$car race at Pocono. ISC isn't anything compared to the greed at this track.

The middle of no-where is where you are here and YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN: U MUST DEAL WITH IT! No one is going to hold your hand and direct you as to what to do here. Either you're self-sufficant or you need a maid, but, the maid stayed home cause she knew what the infield at Pocono is all about!

FROM ANDY MCBRIDE: Here are some pointers if anyone is thinking about going to Pocono:
1. The stands SUCK! Your view of the track is limited plus if the person in front of you stands up then your view is obstructed even more and the people behind you are pissed cause now they cannot see.
2. If you are going to the infield, do your shopping for souvenirs before you go in. If you are coming to the track via 115 you can make a left onto Long Pond Rd.. About a quarter of a mile to your right is a place for shoppers to park. There are vendors 100 feet away.  Be ready to do some walking if you want to go to the driver merchandise
trailers because they are over in back of the grandstands.
3. Again!!! If you are staying in the infield, bring everything you need with you! Food, drink, ice, proper clothes. If you might think you need it for a weekend in the infield BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!
4. The signage for the speedway is a joke. We had to turn around at least 4 times because we missed the turns to where we had to go. You do not know where you are until you are practically on top of it. I suggest going to google maps and printing off a detailed map of the immediate area around the track.
5. Make friends with everyone you meet in the infield. Cause you never know! A lot of people who work for the track stay there because it is convenient for them to just stay at the track and walk to the area they are working. They all know what a  scam the higher ups are running. Heck they get paid squat and work long hours!!! If you become friends with them they can "help" you out if needed. Here's an example. The people we were hanging out with had a person driving down from western NY on Saturday night. One of the guys needed to leave to go get her at the place they told her to drive to. I think it was a bar down the road from the speedway.  As you know, you cannot leave the infield without paying. A Pocono worker was camping next to them and they became friends. They explained the situation to him and WALA! He hooked them up with a pass to get in and out of the infield for free. Within a half an hour she was inside enjoying an adult beverage with us.
6. Did I mention to bring everything you might possibily need for the weekend of camping!?!?!?!?!?
7. Don't plan on leaving right after the race. Does the word ZOO me anything to you? About 160,000 have the same idea to leave ASAP. Take the day off on Monday and stay the night. Leave that morning. Trust me! You'll be glad you did.

FROM LINDA:  I wanted to pass on some information to you about Pocono that may useful on your site.  We stayed at the Red Roof Inn in Wilkes Barre, which is weird for us not bringing our camper but it was actually cheaper to stay in the hotel and we are trying to make some money having these booths : ).  I ended up getting a great rate of $45.99 per nite at Red Roof because they have a deal if you stay 4 nights.  The hotel was very clean, right off 476 and although it was about 25 miles from the track, it was a straight shot on Rt 115 with literally no traffic.  I recommend the hotel because it was cheap, the rooms have recently been renovated and it was clean. We stayed at the Ramada Inn Limited in Tannersville for the race in June and paid over twice as much for 4 nights.  It was closer, about 15 miles, and clean, but it very run down.  The outside looked ok and the girl at the front desk was super nice and helpful but the hallways had a musty smell and the entire hotel, (carpets, lines, wall paper, etc.) needs renovation.  It had a indoor pool and hot tub but the pool had a dirt line around the entire pool at the water level and the hot tub didn't work properly.  So, for over twice the money, we felt like the Red Roof Inn was definitely better.

PLACES YOU MAY NEED 

Gas Stations

FROM AL G.There are a few gas stations near the track, but they are the worst price-gougers that I have seen in my travels.  I filled up at another Pennsylvania location before driving to Pocono and one would expect similar or slightly higher prices near the track.  The stations near the raceway had jacked up their gas prices by close to 60 cents a gallon. My advice is to fill up before getting to the track and don't give these leeches any of your business.
