Yah, loved that race. The sound the cars made was awesome. Well, not to everyone, some who had condos with balconies overlooking the venue actually complained about the noise.

Sat behind Mario A. Son Michael wasn't getting treated very well by a certain Canadian driver. The family reaction was as entertaining as the rest of the race. Way to go J. V.

Congratulations to Ontario's James Hinchcliffe for winning the Pole of the 100th Indy 500. Couldn't happen for a nicer guy.

What a Great Indy 500 Weekend. This KOA was outstanding. Great modern facilities, friendly and helpful staff, and everything was super clean. Normally indy camping would be loud and rowdy. This place was very quiet and like a normal camping weekend. For any race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway I would suggest this Campground.
*an easy 25 mile drive to the track
*Excellent Service
*Very clean restrooms and showers
*Hot water never ran out despite a full campground using the showers after the race!
*Many sites have full hookups
*Gas station across from campground
*Staff does not tolerate rowdiness and campground is quiet and clean
*Well stocked camp store with RV supplies and essentials
*RV dealer/service center next door if needed!
*Great Pancake breakfast and activities
*easy on and off from expressway to campground
*They even have you reserve for next year, but then after 9am on Monday following the race, you can see what sites have not been reserved in case you want to select a different location.

This is the nicest KOA I have ever stayed at. While expensive for the race weekend (heck everything has a price increase during that time) It was Much better than a hotel! KOA Indianapolis is Highly recommended by Brenda and I. In fact we have our site for next year's race.

Going to re-order my Tickets for the race as well. I should have 2 extra's if anyone would like to join us!

Happy Camping.

Don, I was thinking you may make it to Osoyoos next year, although I have to admit I have never been to the 500 race in Indianapolis, just the one in Florida. Tough decision......

Jim, it might be awhile before I make it to Osoyoos......Too many days off work right now.

A miny Escape Rally at the Indy 500 would be a blast! Just let me know! It may give you some ideas for that Mustang.

You would really enjoy this campground though as the service is excellent.
