Tailgating in Fayetteville
« Reply #18151 on: October 03, 2016, 10:30:57 pm »

Lifelong fan but not alumni here.  I typically go to every Little Rock game, but living in Memphis and working alot makes Fayetteville games a challenge (I'm actually of the move all games to Fayetteville not that it matters).  I'm taking my wife to the game this weekend.  Question - where is the best place for me to park and tailgate?  Every time I've been to Fayetteville, I've gone with a buddy of mine who has several connections and we've bounced from spot to spot.  We are driving to Conway Friday and driving the rest of the way on Saturday, so I should have plenty of time for pregame festivities.  Any help is much appreciated.

What time are you getting here?

Best bet is probably gonna be somewhere down around Baum stadium if you don't have time to save a spot Friday afternoon.

Head up Friday night and get out of that horrible town of Jonesboro. That's a long drive to really enjoy a good day of tailgating. Nothing better than a long day of food, drinks, friends, and a Bama ass kicking.

If you can get there early, there could be free parallel parking (south bound only) on Arkansas Avenue in front of Old Main.    You can then easily walk to Dickson Street and then stroll across campus and down to the stadium......   also, you picked a great game for your first one in Fayettenam........

I'll be three drinks in by 11  ;), there are some spots north of the stadium as well off of Cleveland and off of Maple, west of Razorback Road.
I think those are $20 per spot.

you need to be at the north end zone parking lot two hours before kickoff and welcome Hogs off the bus. Its a must for first timers, and you can then walk across the street to grassy area for public music and tailgating. You will have a blast.

Also the band does a mini pep rally in the gardens before the game which is pretty neat to go to if you are down around that area.  I agree that Fayetteville High is a great place to park, just know it cost $10 I believe.  Last game Zaxby's had a tent in front of Bud Walton with sandwhiches and the game before that it was Hellmans Mayo with burgers.

Not sure about catering tents to be honest, but the Union (right across Stadium from The Pit) food court should be open. Not sure what they've changed in the year and a half since I graduated, but there should be several options open in there.

Takes you away from the tailgate atmosphere (just barely) but it's still right where the action is, meaning you're not going out of your way if you choose to eat there.

It's quicker, or seems that way, if you park at Mr burger and walk.  There's a walk up hill but after that it's gravy.

At least one of the shuttles that runs from Baum to the stadium starts its route down Dickson St. I always eat and drink at Hammontrees before the game and get on the bus right on Dickson across the street from Brewski's etc. Same side as Walton Arts Center.

They drove him by the North End Zone parking area (lot 44) down Stadium Drive before the players' walk at the Texas State game.  Not sure where or if they stop along Stadium for folks to see.  Cheerleaders and seems like a few band folks were on top of the trailer.

Wow, that's interesting. I know they used to keep it open, that surprises me they shut it down. It was always full on game days.

Never mind then!

As far as a quick place to eat near the stadium on game day goes, I usually go to Whataburger just southeast of the stadium a few hours before kickoff

My wife and I both work on campus, so we know most of the small lots. We normally come to campus 4 hours or so before kickoff, and park on the far east edge of campus. My college son and his girlfriend usually join us. We walk over to Dickson and eat at one of the places that is not overflowing on game afternoons. There are a couple of places you can get in without waiting, and that will have the games on. Afterwards we walk through campus, sometimes stop by some friend's tale gate to say hello, or just hang out on campus.  Have fun!

They bring him up to the stadium and stop right by the entrance to the track and field stadium. The cheerleaders all get on there.  This happens right before pep rally in the garden. 

I should be more specific.  They bring him up Razorback Road, towards the north parking lot and stop at the entrance mentioned above.  I assume this is on the way to the Hog Walk which is 2 hours before kickoff so this happens about 30 minutes before that.  This is a great spot to see Tusk and get pics with cheerleaders if your daughter is into that as well.

most of the green space on campus can be used for tailgating, however, that doesn't mean you can park next to it.  You can drop
off your tent starting at 5pm on Friday.  Then drop off your gear the next morning or day about 4.5 hours before game time before
they start blocking traffic.  Then, after the game, you let traffic clear out and swing back by and pick up your gear.

There's some decent green space around BWA. Southside has decent tree coverage as well, but needs to be claimed on Friday.  Nice part is since Bball practice has started you may be able to pop in to BWA and catch a glimpse.

Well, if there isn't an accident in the tunnel, it's generally Katie bar the door on I49. The left lane is for those running 85, and the right for those driving 84.

It won't unless some idiot freaks when they hit the tunnel and slams on their brakes like the first game, causing a pile up.  I never understood why anyone would slow down when going through the tunnel.

Very few people from NEA take the northern route to Fayetteville anymore because it takes about 45 minutes longer in time even though it's about 60 miles shorter in distance. If you are worried about I-49, take 412 via Mt. Home, Harrison, Alpena pass, etc....

It's probably about equal in driving time, maybe less, assuming you don't get behind a load of cattle, someone pulling a boat, a school bus stopping every 3/4 mile or construction. I made the trip up to Mt Home for the state golf championship on Monday and Tuesday and it was 2 1/2 hours each trip. I had know unusual traffic and actually seldom went over 65 as I wasn't in any hurry. There's plenty of passing lanes and even 4 lanes to make it an easier trip. Now, I haven't tried it on a game day in years. The last time was in 2009 after staying in Mt Home after a Friday night football game.

Yellville to Alpena can be slow.
Leave early enough, the traffic should be ok. The next time I go to the Hill, I might go this route, just as a change up.
