Any DAYTONA veteran will tell you that you haven’t truly experienced the "World Center of Racing" until you’ve loaded your gear, called up your closest friends and set up camp somewhere in the 180-acre infield.
Here’s how to best prepare yourself for a Bike Week camping experience unlike any other.
FREE tent camping
With your daily admission ticket, you can tent camp inside DAYTONA’s legendary infield for FREE! If tent camping isn’t your style, additional camping options, including RV spaces, are available. No matter your set-up, you can make a temporary home alongside stunning views of the famous high banks!
With daily, two five-day packages and a full ten-day package all available, there’s a good fit for anyone looking to kick back, relax and enjoy the 76th Bike Week from the heart of all the action.
If you’re looking for an ideal, easily accessible place to store your motorcycle trailer during Bike Week, you can leave just outside of Turn 1 in GEICO Park West for just $100!
Know what you can bring and can’t bring
Before you arrive, be sure to take a look at our infield policies to learn what you can bring with you. Some examples are listed below.
Cars, trucks, sleep and canopy tents, pop-up campers, trailers and pull-behind units are permitted.
Note: None of these items can exceed 8ft in height or 20ft. in length.
Weapons, fireworks and illegal substances, drones, skateboards, scooters, golf carts, ATVs, bicycles and more are not permitted in the infield.
Things to consider with an RV
RVs can only enter through the Turn 1 tunnel, so be sure to plan accordingly. The Turn 1 tunnel can be accessed by entering through Gate 40, located off of International Speedway Blvd. on S Williamson Blvd.
Some sites have water and electricity, (it should say if your site does or does not) but not all. If you’re using a generator be mindful of people around you, both for noise and carbon monoxide. Just be sure to keep your site well-ventilated. Your RV pass includes a tow pass. You don’t have to tow a car and can drive it in, but that tow pass will be the pass for that vehicle. Sewage service is provided on property and you will see them driving around the sites.
Be prepared for the weather
The average high temperature for the week is around 70 degrees, with an average low in the 50’s. In the past 20 years, there have certainly have been extremes in both directions, so be sure to check the weather before you go. It’s not uncommon for your clothing needs in a weekend to range from shorts and flip flops to a nice coat and rain gear. Remember, because you’ll be here for multiple days, the weather is likely to -- and often does -- change. If you are in need of clothing or gear, make a stop at the Motorcycle Marketplace in the Midway.
