Sorry to dredge up this old thread, but wondering if there are any 'Dega campers in here and what their thoughts are on whether we should camp in the "free" areas or reserve a paid site. Any experiences to share?

We know what to expect from the whole Nascar camping experience and have been to many races, most recently MIS in August of this past year, so we realize that it's a "free for all" as far as partying and having a good time.
We have yet to do 'Dega though, and looking for anyone who has camped there and what their experience was.

Wondering as well. We have been doing the spring race at Richmond. Talladega could be on the way home.
Very different prices (lower) on the NASCAR owned tracks.

We always go to Michigan spring race because we have friends from WI that come with 4-5 campers and we go with 4 campers. We all camp together as we have about 15 camp sites. Been to Brickyard once, Indy 500 a couple times, Talladega fall and spring race several times, Chicagoland once and this year planning on the Charlotte road course race in the fall.

We always camp in the free lot and have always had a blast camping! The lot we camp in is straight across the road from the main track entrance and then to the left. Were behind the small pay camping lot behind cheap charlies and up near the fence, that's what we call the vendors across from the museum.

How far a walk is that to the track roughly?
When do you guys arrive and is it hard to get a "spot"?

I don't mind a little walk, but don't want to have to walk a few miles each way to the track.

Also, we don't mind arriving Monday or Tuesday to get a spot if need be.

No problem getting spots as its first come first serve. Its just a big open field, no marked camp spots. Its one of the Geico lots. The walk from where we camp is probably about 1/4-3/8 mile. I've heard of some that drive across and park in the parking areas near the track. We usually leave here on Tues and get within 250 miles or so and camp for the nite. Get up Wed morning, have breakfast, fill fresh water and dump all tanks then get in there around noon or so and get setup. Its all dry camping so you need water and a genny.
We won't or I should say I won't be there this next fall race because were planning on going to the new Charlotte road course. Might do spring race but not sure yet, we usually decide that about a week before after 4-5 beers, easier to make a decision that way!!

Daytona 22 Years and counting....

Iíve been camping at the Daytona 500 in Turn 3 against the fence for 22 Years. Not in my Passport, of course as Turn 3&4 does not allow travel trailers due to height restrictions. Many years out of a van, but this will be our 3rd year in a custom built trailer/camper with a platform up top. We designed and built it ourselves. Basically just a bunkhouse inside. Itís watching from the top that makes the difference. We were part of a study by Daytona to determine rules for our end of the track. Best campsite in the infield. Just got a King satellite dish for Christmas Iím ready to get hooked up for the race and for my Passport the rest of the year. Itís 30 below windchills in Illinois right now so I canít wait to go racing and camping at Daytona in February!
