SONOMA, Calif. (Oct. 10, 2017) - Sonoma Raceway has opened its 50 Acres campground to evacuees seeking temporary refuge from the Northern California fires.


The raceway, which is equipped to handle up to 2,000 campers during its major event weekends, opened its largest campground to evacuees on Tuesday. The 50 Acres campground is located directly across from the raceway on Highway 121 and has not been affected by the fires.


Those in need of camping at Sonoma Raceway should enter the campground at Gate 6 on Highway 121, a quarter-mile north of Hwy 37. The raceway will team up with United Site Services to offer basic RV services, including water/sewage service, to campers during their stay. The campground is dry with no hookups. Porta-john toilets are available.
