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.

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. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

The campground is directly beside Charlotte Motor Speedway and ZMax Drag Strip. If drag racing is taking place at the time you are here, your entire RV will shake. This is bare bone site prep. Sites are large, but have only large, gravel foundation. There are a very few sites with any grass or shade. Each site has a picnic table. The water pressure is very good, and all roads are paved with easy maneuvering for large RVs. We use this campground only because it is close to the venue we frequent in Charlotte.

It's a big, gravel parking lot - nothing more! Great for the races, and Concord Mills shopping area, but not a place for lounging around the campsite. Don't know the rates, as we stayed there free after picking up our new travel trailer from the dealership. We camped at Tom Johnson Camping Racing Resort in a Travel Trailer.
