  • Great camping experience. They have a range of camping available from full hook up to tenting. The bathrooms are really clean. The Zoo is an interesting mesh of people. The grounds are nicely...

  • I went there for the NPK races Friday! I had general admission tickets which was fine but then they charged 20.00$ for parking on top of the tickets and it was the furthest away parking instead of parking as we came they run you all the way back forty for being on time to the event and had bought tickets in advance no break on parking! They didn't have any shuttle's to the prepay area or nothing in place! When they setup the event they didn't use the tunnel under the track to help people get to the stands on the South side only seating! That would of been nice at the end of the day to get back to the far North parking area it just didn't make much sense to me how they setup things for the Fans!🤔😕
  • Haven't been here since 2016 but went to the nationals here about 15 times since 89. The best time ever at This track. Shirley's fuel dragster gave me my first nitro bath. You gotta go to the zoo.
