Atlanta Opens Campgrounds To Hurricane Evacuees

Atlanta Motor Speedway is opening its campgrounds to evacuees fleeing the path of Hurricane Matthew. The speedway will open the Family Campgrounds and bath house facilities free of charge, giving evacuees access to hot showers and restroom facilities.

Those interested in RV or tent camping at Atlanta Motor Speedway should enter the facility at Entrance “A” off Hwy 19/41 at Speedway Boulevard and take the first left at entrance N.  The Family Campgrounds will be on the left.  From I-75 and GA Highway 20, campers should see signs to AMS and follow Lower Woolsey road to Speedway Boulevard.  Turn right on Speedway Boulevard and follow to entrance N.

Atlanta has a history of providing free camping to evacuees.  In September of 2004, more than 30 families took refuge at AMS after evacuating their homes due to Hurricane Francis. The speedway is located approximately 25 miles south of Atlanta on Hwy 19/41 and approximately eight miles west of I-75 off of GA Highway 20.
