Riverside International Speedway (RIS) is committed to providing a safe, comfortable, and memorable experience for our guests. We have established camping terms of use so that there is a clear understanding by those who use our property for overnight stays of what is acceptable, and what is not. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

The following terms of use are governed by track officials, law enforcement, and government regulatory bodies and are subject to change without notice. RIS reserves the right to amend or implement terms at any time. Failure to comply may result in legal penalties, ejection from the premises, forfeiture of fees, and being denied future access. RIS is not responsible for personal injuries or damage and/or loss to/of vehicles, RV’s, tents, or other personal property on RIS grounds; use at your own risk. By using an RV or tent on RIS property you acknowledge you have read and understood these terms and are in agreement with same.

Reservations for 2021 IWK 250 Campsites are pending until we have more direction from Public Health in regard to Covid-19 protocols for the camping sections. Thanks for your patience.
