Kentucky Derby RV Parking
Its best to plan ahead when setting the wheels in motion for your Derby adventure. Tickets sell out fast as do the parking spaces close to the track. Other RV parks nearby the event also sell out quickly and of course, the price for parking may be a bit higher than usual.
But, when you take into account that your rental RV includes all the amenities of home (TV, Refrigerator, Stove, Full Bathroom etc), you’ll be saving money by not having to rent a hotel room. You’ll also not need to worry about missing any of the action!
Other Things to Do At Derby
