The Delaware Ag Museum is one of the best locations for camping near the track for tents, pop-ups, large campers and motor homes. Folks get tired of the dust bowl and/or mud pits staying on the lots behind the track, so places like the Ag Museum have become more and more popular. Did I mention that you can see the grand stands from our front door?
The Ag Museum features an "1890's Village", a collection of historic structures that were moved to the museum grounds from around the state of Delaware. Most tent camping is situated in the grassy village area and around the perimeter of the village near the woods. Large RV's and campers are only allowed on the paved areas of the museum grounds.
Payment: Cash, check or credit cards are accepted. Full payment is due upon your arrival at the museum. There will someone at the entrance to greet you, collect payment & show you to your space.
Generators: Permitted as long as they are of the “quieter” variety -- please be respectful of other campers and do not run your generator all night long (unless it’s needed for a breathing machine).
Electricity and water: We do not have either electric or water hook-ups. However, you can fill your RV water tank for a $20 fee (you MUST have your own hose).
Pets: We allow small dogs as long as they’re not a "biter" or “barker”. They must be on a leash at all times and you must clean up after them. If we get any complaints or have any problems we will discontinue this policy and pets will not be allowed for future races.
Museum lobby hours: The museum lobby is open from 7:30am until 7pm on race weekends, so that our guests can use the indoor restrooms (we do not have shower facilities). For your convenience, there are port-a-johns located in the village area as well as in the front parking lot.
Quiet hours: 11pm-6am. We want our guests to have an enjoyable experience and we want them to return for future races. Most of our campers have been staying at the Ag museum for 10+ years and are very quiet and respectful of others. If you prefer a party atmosphere there are other places to camp around Dover that will better suit you.
Other amenities: We have ice for sale (limited hours), so you never have to go far to restock your coolers. There is just about anything you need within easy walking distance including restaurants, shops, etc.. And, don't forget Dover Downs Casino is just a ¼ mile away!!
