For Razorback games: When you get near the stadium, you'll be directed to parking, but you may have to park on grass. General parking for 4,800 cars can be found on the War Memorial golf course. General parking is $20. There are 400 spots at the corner of Fair Park Boulevard and Markham Street where fans pay $120 a season for reserved tailgating and there is scholarship parking in the lots around the stadium. There is also space for RVs. War Memorial has a parking map on their website.
For most other events, there is ample parking on the stadium lot.
The atmosphere for tailgating is different at War Memorial than in Fayetteville, and must be experienced by any Razorback fan. Even fans of other teams admit you've never tailgated if you've never tailgated in Little Rock.
Check out the the guide to find out more about the experience. However, the best advice is to show up early and prepare to meets lots of friendly people.
Meet the Razorback Team:
One of the fun things to do on a Razorback Game day is witness the arrival of the Razorback Football team and staff before the game. Fans line the stadium entrance (the side closest to Markham) to greet the team as they make the trek from the buses to the locker room. Most of the team will high five kids (and grownups). The team usually arrives for this tradition 2 hours before kickoff. You have to line up early to get a prime spot.
The Other Stadium: Fayetteville's Reynolds Razorback Stadium:
Most Razorback home games are played in Fayetteville. Fayetteville's stadium is Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The current contract keeps at least two Razorbacks games, with one being a conference game, in Little Rock until the end of the 2014 season.
