PKRA Park Overnight Rules

The Adobe Dam Regional Park has strict regulations that PKRA and attendees must adhere to.  Anyone who violates park rules shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.  Of particular note, there can be no glass bottles, and absolutely nothing may be dumped, including grey water.

PKRA requires pets to be on a 6 foot leash, in someone’s arms, or in an enclosed trailer / vehicle (obviously not in a hot car). If an animal bites someone, the pet will be banned forever, and the person/family will be suspended/banned for at least 30 days.  Other sanctions will be applied for pets running loose.

PKRA prohibits the consumption of alcohol until the last kart has completed on track sessions.

Violating the park rules may result in sanctions against you, and may also result in the park revoking the overnight privileges for PKRA entirely.

The Adobe Dam was built to protect homes near the park from flooding of the skunk creek.  The park is designed to flood and contain those floodwaters.  The elevation is highest at the entrance to the park on Pinnacle Peak, and decreases as you move south into the park.  Camping is only allowed at the highest point at PKRA, which is along the north/northeast section of fencing in the north parking lot (see map below).  Because PKRA may flood, you may be asked to evacuate and remove all your equipment on very short notice.


RVs are allowed in the pit area during PKRA Club Races if there is sufficient room, but there is no camping in the pit area, and RVs must not be left overnight in the pit area.  Special Events may have stricter rules.  Under no circumstances is anything to be dumped anywhere in the park area, and that includes grey water.  Fires are often prohibited, particularly during the summer.

There are a few electrical hookups available in the pits (see the Race Pricing page), but none in the designated camping area.

Remember when parking that a fire lane must be maintained in the pit area (See the Pit Map).


Camping is again allowed only along the north/northeast fence of the outside parking lot for PKRA Club Races and some outside events (see map below).  See the Race Pricing page for current prices.  There are no hookups available.  The gate into the park is closed overnight.  It will open automatically to allow exit, but not reentry until morning.  There is no security provided, though Special Events may choose to have personnel present overnight.

Trailers and Equipment

Trailers and Equipment may be left overnight for race events in the pit area at the owner’s risk (see the Race Pricing page).
