Michigan International Speedway racetrack officials have unveiled plans for a truly unique campground that will open in 2012.

APEX is a deluxe trackside campground of 20 spaces, giving camping guests the best, most exciting view of the racetrack – all from the apex of Turn 3.

Each trackside campsite is 20- x 55-feet wide and has water and electric hookups, a picnic table and grill. The sites overlook Turn 3, so guests will be able to feel the surge of 43 NASCAR stock cars at speeds of close to 200 mph.

The views and excitement will be awesome. But the personalized service is what will distinguish the campground from all others in NASCAR.

A concierge service for guests of the campground will be offered – an exclusive opportunity for fans who stay there to be pampered and catered to by a professional butler.

“We have always tried to make our customers feel like kings,” Roger Curtis, president of MIS, said. “But this new campground will go the extra mile for our guests – literally. If you need a ride to the New Holland Fan Plaza, the concierge can take you there.”

A concierge will assist guests with anything they need to enjoy a race weekend in the Michigan. Need a tee time before the race? Need a ride to the garage? Where’s the best place to dine? Need ice? Just ask the concierge for advice, guidance and assistance for most of your MIS camping and weekend needs.

Admission to APEX is $1,600 per site, plus $250 per person for the weekend, up to 10 people per site. Each guest will receive a scanner rental and weekend pit access. Two people per site will also receive NASCAR garage passes for the weekend.

Guests interested in camping in APEX should call MIS ticket agent Ian Kirkpatrick at 517-592-1285 for details. Because of the limited number of sites, spaces will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis to renewal guests and then to deposit guests.

All RVs in APEX must be self-contained. APEX will open on Thursday of race week, and remain open until the Monday after the race.

DENVER, Colo. — When Laura Franklin went to the Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Williamsport., Md., she took along her video camera and not only recorded her husband and kids having fun, but interviewed them about what they liked most about the campground they visited.

“They really enjoyed the waterslides,” said Franklin, a Maryland resident and “MommyBlogger” from Better in Bulk.net. “The other thing they couldn’t they couldn’t stop talking about was panning for jewels.”

Children Playing at Campground

Franklin also shot footage of her kids playing laser tag and commenting on their rental cabin. With five kids ages 6 to 14, Franklin said park was the perfect place for a family vacation.

“I just enjoyed that we could stay in one place and that the kids could run around like they were at home. We felt very comfortable. There was lots to do, so we didn’t have to travel anywhere else.”

Franklin is one of the first campers to submit a short video in GoCampingAmerica.com’s “Not Bummer Summer” summer video contest and compete for a chance to win a weeklong RV trip to any GoCampingAmerica.com affiliated campground in the United States.

“The only requirement is the video be family-friendly, that it capture the essence of having a ‘not bummer summer’ and that it be taken at a campground, RV park or resort featured on the GoCampingAmerica website,” said Kera Tomlin, GoCampingAmerica’s director of marketing.

That’s plenty of venues, considering that more than 3,300 campgrounds, RV parks and resorts are featured on the national travel planning website.

Campers are invited to upload their videos to YouTube and then submit their entry forms along with the YouTube link at www.GoCampingAmerica.com/videocontest. All videos must be taken and submitted between June 1 and Labor Day (midnight Sept. 5).

Video entries will be voted on through the “favorites” option on YouTube between June 1, 2011 and Sept. 5. The top two videos with the most “favorite” votes that best depict a “Not Bummer Summer” Camping getaway and most carefully follows the rules and regulations, will then be entered into a drawing and the first randomly drawn will be selected as the grand prize winner and the other entrant will be awarded the 2nd runner up. The third prize winner will be selected amongst the remaining top five votes and entered into a drawing and selected at random. An entrant may recommend to its camping guests, friends and families to “favorite” the entrant’s video on YouTube.

The grand prize winner will receive a weeklong trip in an RV, courtesy of El Monte RV, and free camping at GoCampingAmerica.com campgrounds. Other prizes include seven days and six nights of lodging at any GoCampingAmerica park, a $100 Camping World gift certificate, plus a $100 movie ticket certificate and other Judy Moody movie related promotional items.
