Camping Policies

Camping at the race track can create memories that can last a lifetime. Before you set up your campsite, take a look at these policies that will help you maximize your weekend getaway at the speedway.

Check-Out: 12:00PM | Check-In: 1:00PM

Late Check-Out Requests must be arranged by 10:00AM

QUIET TIME is enforced from 12:00AM (midnight) until 7:00AM.

Camping is permitted in designated campground spaces only. No overnight camping is permitted in open parking areas.

Photo ID must accompany camping credential and be presented when requested by Charlotte Motor Speedway officials/employees.

Camping Pass and Car Passes must be visible at all times affixed to windshield (during events) at all times. All vehicles must be approved at the cabin during Check-In.

Personal Golf Carts, low-speed vehicles, motorized bikes, motorized skateboards, etc. are prohibited.

One camping unit and one vehicle per site, unless the site is approved for dual parking by the campground hosts.

Vehicles All vehicles must be within the confines of the campsite and in the gravel. No vehicles may be parked in any of the grassy areas around the campground. Vehicles also may not be parked in an adjacent site as this may prevent another camper from checking into that site. A fee may apply to any vehicles caught parked in another site.

Towing All campers must be able to tow their camping unit at any time.

Trash must be placed in a receptacle or trash bag. Place your trash at end of campsite or in the dumpster, there will be one round of trash pick-up at each campground each day. A cleaning fee may apply for excessive trash left on your site.

Fires are only allowed if contained in an approved above ground container. Embers may not be left on site upon departure. A cleaning fee may apply for excessive trash left on your site.

Damages You will be held responsible for any damages to your campsite during your stay.

Pools No pools over 2 feet tall. If a pool is put on your site, it must be on the gravel and not in the grass. Any pool may be deemed unacceptable at CMS employees’ discretion.

"UAS" aka drones, are prohibited on Charlotte Motor Speedway Property.

Respect other campers’ privacy; do not walk through other campsites.

Firearms, dangerous weapons, or fireworks are strictly prohibited as specified by local authorities. Failure to comply will result in expulsion from the campground without refund and possible prosecution.

Sewer Adaptors are mandatory in the Camping World Racing Resort and are required to hook up to the septic system. If a sewer hose is left on the site or in the sewer hookups, a fee may apply for removal and/or cleaning of the site.

Any unauthorized items can be confiscated and held by Security until customer's departure.

Drink responsibly.

Please remember to be careful! You are responsible for your own safety.  Look out for natural hazards and dangers especially when you are in wooded areas.  Swimming is not permitted in any of the ponds, streams, or rivers located on or near Speedway property.

Camping is an outdoor experience; therefore, we do not give refunds due to discomforts of nature.

Campers are required to turn generators off from 12 midnight until 7:00am.

Please be aware of all carbon monoxide dangers that can be harmful to you or other guests. Vehicle and generator exhaust must be expelled safely into roadways and not into adjacent campsites.

Anyone needing a generator for health issues must check in with the Campground Check in Trailer and speak with the Campground Hosts. Anyone requesting exception to this rule must have an approved "exhaust flow pipe" attached to their generator exhaust to vent the fumes upward and away from other campers in order to lessen the dangers of carbon monoxide.  This would apply to motor homes and units with very low decibel generators.

Units with high decibel generators or no exhaust flow pipe will be moved to another location in the campground by the Campground Hosts and Speedway security so as not to disturb other campers, keep them awake, and maintain safety for all.

Campers are allowed to bring the family pet when visiting campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Pets are not permitted in the grandstand areas during race events.  To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all guests and campers, it is important that you read and abide by the following Pet Policy:

Aggressive dogs of any breed cannot enter or stay at CMS campgrounds. If your dog shows behavior that is protective and unfriendly to strangers, please leave it home. If you decide to bring your dog and it exhibits this type of behavior, CMS personnel will ask you to leave.

A LEASH RULE is in effect whenever the animal is outside the owner's camping trailer, vehicle, motorhome or tent - there are no exceptions. All dogs must be under the control and visual observation of their owner at all times. No dog can be left tied up and unattended outside the owner's camping equipment.

Campers must clean up after their pets and properly dispose of the waste; this rule applies at all times no matter where the pets relieve themselves in the campgrounds or parking areas. Please do not walk your pet through another camper's site or allow them to relieve themselves on someone else's site.

Allowing your pet to bark uncontrollably day or night will not be permitted and in such event, you may be asked to leave.

Service dogs are always welcome at all CMS campgrounds. However, these animals must follow leash restraint policies and may not exhibit aggressive behavior.

Pet Pens are allowed but the pet must still remain under constant supervision at all times.

The users of this camping space are prohibited from conducting commerce or engaging in any marketing activities.  This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, the sale of goods, sampling, signage, surveying, food vending or any other activity that in the sole discretion of the staff of Charlotte Motor Speedway is deemed detrimental to the facility.  Violation of this policy will result in forfeiture of the camping space and any monies paid. Camping spaces may also not be used for advertising, promotion (including contests or sweepstakes) or trade purposes without the express written consent of Charlotte Motor Speedway.
