Looking at heading up to Jackson for the 2018 nationals. Never been there and looking for any camping info. From researching so far, camping options seem to be very limited?

There are 49 electric/water hookups and 30 "dry" sites at the track. I've been put on the waiting list for one of the 49 sites but not too hopeful about anything opening up? I see there is a KOA about 20 miles from the track as well. Other than that, I'm not coming up with much. Are there other options available in the area?

Thanks!

Robertson, Brown and Anderson parks are nice. About 20-25 mnutes south of Jackson at Loon Lake. Google Jackson County Campgrounds (MN) for a good look at those and more info. About another 10 minutes would get you to Marble Beach campground on Big Spirit Lake on the north side of Spirit Lake, IA. All offer electric hookups and more. Also at all of these, there are mature trees for shade and wind break on most of the sites.

Stay a half hour south at any camping area at Lake Okoboji. You'll have a fantastic time down there outside of the racing.

Thanks for the replies guys! I appreciate it. 

Iv'e been pleasantly surprised with the quick responses to my emails sent to Jackson Motorplex...even more surprised that it was the GM of the track that was responding. 

We're #6 on the waiting list for a site, so hopefully we get lucky!? :D

The Koa is only 2 miles from the track, it's a very nice clean campground, cheaper than most Koa's, we have stayed there for years!!

Do you know if golf carts are allowed to drive to the track from the KOA?

I WOULD HAVE TO SAY GOLF CARTS ARE NOT BECAUSE YOU WOULD BE ON A STATE HIGHWAY

I have never seen it, so I'm guessing it's not allowed!!
