Pocono Raceway

I want to take the family to Pocono. I'm not sure we are ready for infield experience. Any recommended RV parks in the area?
Generally looking to spend the day at the raceway and a little peace in the evening.
28' hybrid travel.

Thanks for any insights, that includes getting the most out of the raceway.

Already did the Atlanta race thing. Next is the spring race at Bristol. I've been going to the Bristol race since the opening event there in 1961. Rarely miss it. We always stay at the Earhart Campground, mainly because of all the "action" there and because it's a three minute walk to the speedway entrance.

Following up with Talladega spring race but haven't decided if Charlotte will be a destination this year. The August Bristol race is going to be really convenient because it just happens to be the week after Goshen, and it's right on the way home.

Going to finish up my season with the Texas race in November. I'm not sure of the campground because my daughter (who lives there) is setting up a group campout with some friends. I'll just stay out of the way as plans are made.

Koi pond is going on 6-years now and the railway is starting its third season once the weather breaks!
