NASCAR, Morgan RV Resorts and Silver Companies have announced a license
to create “NASCAR RV Resorts,” a new branded concept to bring the
sights, sounds and thrills of NASCAR to family camping locations across
The first 13 locations include sites in eight different states and
future expansion goals are for hundreds of additional locations in the
next 10 years, according to a news release.
Beginning in the spring, the first NASCAR RV Resorts will come
online and incorporate a full NASCAR experience for campers, including
live NASCAR races shown on giant screens. These locations are:
Stonebridge Park in Maggie Valley, N.C.; NASCAR RV Resort of Mays
Landing, N.J..; Indian Creek RV Resort in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio;
Westward Ho Campground in North Kettle Moraine, Wisc.; Adirondack
Gateway RV Resort in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; Indiana Beach Campground in
Monticello, Ind.; Wild Acres in Old Orchard Beach, Maine; Virginia Park
RV Resort in Old Orchard Beach, Maine; Wagon Wheel in Old Orchard
Beach, Maine; Megunticook Campground by the Sea in Rockport, Maine;
Camden Hills RV Resort in Rockport, Maine, Endless Caverns and RV
Resort, New Market, Va.; and Blueberry Hills RV Resort in Bushnell, Fla.
These locations will be rebranded and include activities providing
the camper a full NASCAR experience away from the track such as tailgate
events, televised race coverage on jumbo screens through NASCAR Media
Group and DirecTV, including exclusive content from the race weekend
only available at a NASCAR RV Resort. Additionally, campers will enjoy
games, activities and retail opportunities with NASCAR themes every
weekend, all season long.
“In a sense, NASCAR has been in the camping business for more than
60 years with NASCAR events representing some of the country’s largest
campgrounds 38 weeks out of the year. The infield of any NASCAR Sprint
Cup track demonstrates NASCAR fans’ strong association with camping and
RV ownership,” said Blake Davidson, managing director, licensed products
for NASCAR. “That passion extends beyond the track and this partnership
bringing our sport to these locations through a NASCAR RV Resort is a
natural connection with our fan base.”
The creation of NASCAR RV Resorts further solidifies NASCAR’s
position with the camping industry. Prior to the 2009 season, Camping
World was named the title sponsor for the sports truck series as well as
the top weekly developmental series.
“There are tremendous synergies between what Camping World does
today and the NASCAR RV Resorts and we are looking forward to bringing
our partners together to maximize the benefits for the NASCAR fans,”
Race fans and their families and friends as well as non-racing
families and friends will benefit as well with clean, safe, family
friendly parks in some of the best locations in America.
“This is great news for RV Park owners and developers around the
country. These new RV/Entertainment Centers will give the
owner/developer the ability to convert or build their RV Park or site
into a unique, one of a kind recreation and entertainment venue that
fans and families alike will find exciting.” said Robert J. Moser,
president and CEO of NASCAR RV Resorts. “There is no better combination
of two more American sports/lifestyles/pastimes then NASCAR and
