Gravel some pavement, fairly level. Wide, lots of room.
Same as camper
Yearly. In the summer during weekends be prepared for car racing and/or limited parking space for late arrivals. During the first part of October the track hosts a dirt bike race. There entire place will be full of campers, but it's quite an event to watch.
Winter could bring snow and make it difficult to pull up into the actual track parking itself, in that situation we would recommend parking in the gravel lot beside Race Track rd. If that is the case, do not turn on to Race Track Rd, but turn into the gravel lot 50 feet past Race Track road. There are semi truck trailers parked there and it's easy to turn around and setup.
Rural Retreat Lake and Campground.
Not only did we get to stay on the property, which super convenient to the highway, it turned out the Labor Day race was that night, so we got to see the races.
I can't begin to describe how neat this place is the owner came to greet us as he did prior we had nice conversation learned a lot about him. he sure is interesting the docking area is clean & quiet it's the perfect place to boondock.
Thanks for an amazing experience
We talked to our host for at least an hour. He has lead a very interesting life and we found there were many things we had in common. The spot in which we camped was level and just outside that dirt track of the raceway. It was next to the expressway, but noise wasn't a problem for us. Beautiful area in the mountains. If we travel through the area again, we would love to visit again.
When we first got there we thought we just were going to bed. But the owner of the race track pulled up to our camper and told to wait for a couple minutes and he would come back. When he returned he was in an old car and gave us a tour of the whole track and how it was built. He even let my son drive in the track. If you ever come down to Virginia you should definitely stay here .
We spent our first boondocker experience at a race track in the beautiful hills of Virginia with Fred. His track is very nice and a fast high banked 1/2 mile.
He was there to greet us and gave hubby a ride around the track.
He place we parked was just beautiful. We slept soundly and will be back for a big race for sure.
Thanks FB for fabulous experience!!
Only stayed one night but look forward to coming back to the area to stay a little longer and take in a race night. Easy access off of Interstate 81. We did not get to meet the host but communication was always prompt and clear.
Fred is a great host. Stopped by to welcome us and showed us several good spots we could chose from to set up. Easy on and off interstate but far enough to be very quiet at night. Saw a few deer on edge of parking lot.
staying with this host was amazing, lol at least for my rig mate who loves racing. Fred even took us for a ride around the track. Fred is a hard work man that's for sure with an amazing sweet wife. Truly hope to see them again in our travels. Take care Fred with much love from Mary Mealer and Brian Carder.
This was a great stop. Very relaxing environment Fred was a super host. I had a great chat with him and found his travel experiences very interesting. I hope we get the chance to travel through the area again and get to stop and see him.
Awesome overnight spot. Very peaceful spot overlooking the track. My only recommendation when leaving the parking area, take the road you came up on, not the road to the left (south). I'm 12ft and just missed the wire and it's a rougher route. My mistake completely. So when headed up follow the owners directions and when you merge to the right, take the left road. Take that same road down 😁 Thanks again! We will stay again.
Very close to freeway. Quiet & plenty of flat area to park. Didn't even have to do any leveling. Our very first boondicking experience. Thank you Fred!
Last night we stayed at Wythe Race Way in Rural Retreat Virginia. It was a wonderful place to stay. Right next to the dirt track with a beautiful view of the mountains. Our host was a very friendly and interesting man. He showed us around the grounds and made us feel very much at home. would gladly stay there again.
We found our way to the track parking lot on our own as Fred was not there and he did not answer his phone. If he had added to his welcome message to follow the sign to the Pit Parking it would have helped us get situated. There is plenty of room and much of it is level. Clearly one would not want to be there for boondocking on a race day. As it is the track is otherwise closed during the time of covid 19.
We were very grateful to have a lovely quiet night by ourselves boondocking. We certainly would stay again if we needed a place in the area.
