A few buddies and myself are renting an RV and taking it from Mass for the 2012 Kentucky Derby. Does anyone know if they designate parking lots at Churchill for RV's? Also we are coming in on the Friday before and are going to have to park it overnight. Can anyone recommend a good place for that? Thank you for your responses.

As far as I know, Churchill proper does not accomodate RV's. (Given the fiscal health of the Kentucky racing industry, that could be subject to change.)
But, depending on the size of your rig, there's a bunch of folks along Longfield that would be more than happy to rent you a space in their yard. Then, I'm pretty sure there's a guy on 4th Street that has RV hook-ups. Or, google Derby RV hookups, and you might find something on sther side streets.
If you need a little help along the way, I'll be happy to assist in any way I can.

Depending on when you are coming in on Friday you may have a problem getting near Churchill Downs. Friday is the Oaks (basically the derby for fillies) and it's close to being as crowded as it is for the derby. Traffic will be severely restricted in the area from about 8:00 AM to about 8:00 PM or so. Just something to think about and remember.

That shouldn't be a problem at all!

No...just show up on derby day and they are around 60 bucks apiece. That said, be aware that the infield is where people dress down, people dress in costume, where the layman goes, and where the college kids have a section at the third turn that can get rowdy depending on the year/weather. It is possible to spend derby day in the infield and not see an actual horse except on the Jumbo TVs.

If it was me i would be here a week before find somewhere not to far to park the rv.And just catch a cab to and from churchill its easier and cabs are the only cars they let get even close to it.If you are going to see the races i would try to get in the stands so you can see it.The in field is always packed hard to see the races and its kinda a big party in it every year.
