The park has easy access off I-85 but the entrance is not well marked. GPS device missed the entrance. Sent us well past the entrance. The area is well developed so there could be A LOT of traffic.
The campground was built on a slope so there are only a hand full of sites that are close to being level. The vast majority of the sites have a 2 directional slope making it difficult to get level.
The interior roads are paved but the traffic flow is difficult - mostly one way and the alignment of the sites to the road. The sites are stone. They are pretty wide and long if being used as a P/Ts. It seems during race week, the P/Ts might be used as back-ins. The utility connections are about midway along the side of the sites when using the sites as P/Ts. Due to the slope of the sites, sewer might have to run up hill. Not much privacy if the CG is full.
The restrooms/shower building was a long way from the CG.
Only one dumpster centrally located. No garbage collection at sites but that didn't stop people from leaving bags of garbage along the roads.
There are very few trees in the park so there isn't much to interfere with satellite reception.
Park map claimed there were 6 broadcast channels. However were able to receive more than 6.
Park's WiFi service was slow. It was difficult to use email. Our Verizon Hotspot was better. Our NET10 cell phone had no reception.
No designated pet area but there was sufficient space to walk dogs along the CG's roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste or collection cans to dispose of waste. Rules prohibited use of pens but that didn't stop people from setting up large pens around their RV's.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.
Would not stay here again. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Avoid race week unless you're a fan. The rates increase significantly. There is no nightly rate only weekly which is over $450.00.

Gravel parking lot for NASCAR races at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Services are excellent, access is easy. Vinyl clad steel picnic table at campsites. During special events this campground books up for several days at a time. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Concord Mills 3 miles away, IKEA 6 miles away, plenty of restaurants along access road.

This park is right out side the Charlotte Motor Speedway so it was very convenient for us to go a do the Richard Petty drive along experience. The sites are very spacious. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The Hendrick Team shops (NASCAR) are only 1 mile away, so an easy walk or bike ride.

Very nice parking area with plenty of gravel sites with full hook ups. We paid at the night check in due to the office being closed the weekend after the NASCAR fall race. No problems with power, water or sewer. Easy access by wide interior roads to campsites. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is excellent if what you need is a really convenient location to park your RV near the speedway, the University area of Charlotte, Huntersville, Mooresville, Concord or Kannapolis. There is easy access from I-85 and I-485. The pull-through sites are big-rig friendly--they are long enough for the longest RVs and wide enough for slide-outs. The term "resort" implies amenities and that's a stretch here. There is no pool and the play area is tiny. We haven't used the laundry facilities recently, but on previous stays, we found the laundry facilities to be average. Water pressure is always good. There is no cable, but there is nothing to block satellite reception. Rates are extremely reasonable when it's not Race Week. During Race Week, rates are high, but the location is perfect for getting to and from the speedway. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.
This is the place to stay if you are in the Concord area for NASCAR stuff. Sites are gravel and fairly level. We had a back-in that was plenty long and very wide. Water pressure is 75 PSI so you really should use a regulator. Voltage ran 123 with the AC running. Laundry has 3 washers and 3 driers and you get 54 minutes on the dryer. There is no shade so we were running both ACs during the day. Plenty of eating places within 3 miles and also all the shopping you need. We would stay here again. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here with Adventure Caravans for all the racing happening on Memorial Day. The campsite was within walking distance of all three race tracks. The campground is huge, but only has one building for the showers and restrooms, and it is located at the far end of the park with the dump stations. The sites are pretty level, and large gravel. During our stay, they placed a karaoke group in the middle of our area of the campground, and the noise was terrible and went into the quiet time almost every night. When complaining, all the staff would say is that they paid for their site too, and once paid, anyone can do anything they want, within reason. The security was told to ignore the complaints from the campers. That came from the lady at the front desk. The sites were very close; close enough so that if you did not get your RV within the middle of your site, your awnings would touch or the slide-outs would be within an inch or so of each other. There are no family facilities at the campground.. no pool, playground, etc. This is a good campground only for the convenience of the nearness to the races. We would not stay here again on our own.

Stayed here for Passport America Rally, so our rate reflects the campsite, meals, entertainment, and seminars. The campground itself is very well maintained with relatively level gravel sites and easy in & out. No extra amenities, but right next to Tom Johnson's RV Sales & Service is problems arise. Close to interstate, shopping and restaurants. Would stay there again if in area. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.

Signage is terrible. Online directions say park is on the right. Nope...it's on the left. Good thing we arrived during light traffic time! Very difficult to find office to register. Once we found it, however, check-in was easy and staff was friendly. All sites are loose pea gravel. All utilities worked well. Would stay again, especially now that we know where it is located. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice large pull through sites that are gravel. Not a lot of amenities, but you are next door to Tom Johnsons for service or Motor Home shopping. Easy to get to near I 85 and I 77. I would stop again. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.

Staff were friendly on check in and helped us change dates while there due to our fifth wheel being repaired (in the shop) at Tom Johnson RV which is right next door. This is an easy RV place to get in and out of. Sites are long, basically level, and you are on gravel but the roads are paved. As previously mentioned easy access to either I-85 or I-485. No cable TV but you can pick up local channels in HD using your roof top antenna. I just wish they had Wi-Fi, that would have helped a lot. We stopped here mainly for service on our fifth wheel.

This is a great park. It's a no frills place, but the sites are huge and pretty level. The park is very easy to navigate through even with our 40ft Class A motorhome with a tow. I can only imagine how crazy this place gets when there is a race. We made sure to come when there wasn't a race which meant the park was pretty empty making it quite peaceful. However, on Saturday night there was a live band playing outside which was pretty loud but they stopped by 10pm. If you have a pet, there isn't a ton of grass to walk your dogs, but there was a enough to get the job done. I can't comment on the restrooms because we didn't use them, but it's always nice to know they are there. You cannot beat the location, it's 2 miles from an amazing outlet mall if you are interested in shopping. We will definitely stay here again.

Although it won't appeal to everyone, this parking lot campground is great. Wide open, clean, EZ access from interestate and within the grounds for big rigs. Spaces are very wide and level with gravel. Nice picnic table. If you're into racing, it's ideal as it's right next door to the Charlotte Raceway. If not, it's still a great place to stay and visit the city. Back ins are more than ample for a 45‘ and the pull thrus are super long-100’. The Nascar Hall of Fame, in downtown Charlotte, has a race car simulator that is really fun. Nearby is good shopping, tons of restaurants and Rocky River Golf Club. No wifi but strong phone signal. Would definitely stay here again We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.
Clean campground and facilities, not family camping, no place for kids to hang out or play. it's a great trasient campground with clean level sites, and easy in and out. Rates go out of site on race weeks so be aware of that. This place caters to the racing community and is only a "campground" when it has no races to cater to. Friendly people and lots to do in the local area, just nothing to do on site. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Motorhome.
