WGI Expands Infield Camping
Campers looking to enhance their Pit Road camping experience can also opt for the Pit Road RV Camping package which includes the typical Pit Road RV Camping amenities as well as four Pit Terrace Grandstand seats, four FanVision rentals, and four Sunday Fan Walk passes.
WATKINS GLEN, NY – Each year reserved camping for the Cheez-It™ 355 and Zippo 200 sells out, prompting Watkins Glen International to expand their offerings. This year, officials at WGI are proud to announce the expansion of Pit Road RV Camping.
“We look to continuously improve the fan experience and enhance tradition. Camping onsite has always been a fan favorite and expanding Pit Road Camping is something we have been considering for a couple of years. We are thrilled to offer this to our fans this season,” stated Michael Printup, president of Watkins Glen International.
After opening and selling out in 2013, the expansion of the coveted Pit Road RV camping provides fans with the opportunity to camp on the infield of Watkins Glen International during the Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen. Located behind the Pit Terrance Grandstands, spots in this area are available with 50 amp electrical and water hook-ups for $1,315. Tents are not permitted. The weekend price is at a premium as Pit Road camping is the only paved campsite area available and in a prime location. Campers looking to enhance their Pit Road camping experience can also opt for the Pit Road RV Camping package which includes the typical Pit Road RV Camping amenities as well as four Pit Terrace Grandstand seats, four FanVision rentals, and four Sunday Fan Walk passes for $1,995.
In addition to the newly expanded Pit Road RV Camping, Family Camping is still available and is highly recommended for guests with families who are interested in staying at The Glen and appreciate a quieter experience. Quiet hours are strictly enforced in this area to ensure a family friendly environment. Launched in 2011 and located outside the track, the Family Camping area has sold out each season for the Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen and continues to grow in popularity. Spots in this area can be reserved for $350 and do not have electric or water hook-ups.
