Editor’s Note” This story was filed on the Everything RV blog.

The first time most people remove their RV cover in February is to go to the Daytona 500. Going to the 500 can be a very expensive experience. One way to cut the cost is to stay at a campground in the Daytona Beach area instead of at the track.

One of the closest campgrounds to the track is the International RV Park and Campground which is 3.2 miles away. The facility’s roomy campsites are designed to accommodate motorhomes up to 40 feet long. Campers can use 50-amp or 240-volt power, and each site has water and sewer hookups. Concrete pads, picnic tables, and pull-thru parking are available on some sites.

Another respectable campground in Port Orange is the Daytona Beach KOA which features RV sites and tent campsites. There are pull-thrus, with a maximum length of 80 feet. Cable TV hookups are provided at no additional charge, and 50-amp electricity is available. Free wireless internet access is also available.

A temporary campground called Speedweeks Campground is located just a mile away from the Speedway. The facility can accommodate both tent and RV campers but is open only during racing weekends. A variety of vendors set up on the grounds, offering various NASCAR merchandise, food, and more. Electrical hookups are not available, but campers are allowed to bring and use generators. Sewer hookups are also not available, but RV campers can purchase daily pump out services. Hot showers are available for campers, as are water stations.
