Going to our first NASCAR race at Talladega.

Heading to Talladega the first weekend in May, this will be our first NASCAR race camping. It will also be our first experience dry camping. Very much looking forward to a great weekend with the family there. Any suggestions/advice on dry camp is greatly appreciated.

There are several campgrounds on the Talladega property, but there are several restrictions depending on which campground you choose. The Geico North campground is free, but usually crowded and very dusty. The are no restrictions in this park, so it can get noisy. There is also a 3/8 mile dirt track just East of the campground with lots of noise and dust. Geico West camprgound is also free, and tends to be crowded. It also has no restrictions. Geico South Campground is also free, but tends to be crowded, and noisy. No restrictions.The infield campground is expensive and has several restrictions including shutting down your generator at 10:00 PM. There are several reserved Campgrounds with varying prices that border the track.You would have to go to Talladegasuperspeedway.com to find out specifics on these campgrounds. We have been to Talladega many times,but decided long ago to stay in Cheaha State Park, about 30 minutes East of Talladega, then drive in every day (parking not a problem) to attend the festivities. It is very reasonable, full service facilities, and a beautiful campground with many NASCAR fans. Hope this helps you some.

We have a reservation at one of the reserve campgrounds at the track, a little pricey for just a piece of dirt with no extras but there will be 8 adults chipping. This will be a first for all of us camping there so camping sites might change next time it all will depend on how it goes the first time.

We have stayed at the Front runners in the infield and had a lot of fun. First race I ever went to where you got to sleep at night very Family friendly

If you stay in a Talladega reserved property dry camping is easy. They have all the services you could possibly need driving by your site all day. Ice, water, propane and honey wagon trucks make rounds all through the campgrounds. We stayed in a family designated area and it was $70 for the week, we thought that was cheap. They have bath houses conveniently located, also camping world is there with all their stuff.
Enjoy the whole experience and stay on the grounds is my suggestion. You can't beat the free shuttles bringing you every where you could want to go.
Wherever you stay, just have fun!

If u get a chance I would definitely check out Cheaha state park. The highest point in Alabama is inside the park. Very nice scenery.
