Thunder Valley Drive, Bristol, TN, 37618

The excitement of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series racing comes to Bristol, Tennessee twice a year, and Pole Position Campground puts you in the midst of all the heart-pounding action. Next to the famed Bristol Motor Speedway, Pole Position Campground is an easy walk from the race track. Pole Position offers hundreds of 20’ x 50’ level camping sites available in three tiers. Each site offers full hookups with 50 amp electric service and our campground includes a large bathhouse with full shower facilities.  In 2020, the campground will be open March 30th-April 6th, June 18th - June 22nd, and September 13th-September 20th. Rates reflect that campers will be staying for the duration of that time (7 nights, 4 nights, or 7 nights respectively). See you soon!

Open Dates: March 13 to September 23

We had a last minute change of plans and needed a campground. Tina and crew were very accommodating and got us a spot. Campground is well kept with clean shower houses. Will definitely stay here next time attending a race in Bristol.
