"Parking was a lot better than the game.. Go Gamecock."
"Good spot!"
"Parking experience was exceptional. Drove into the parking area, the parking attendant ask to see my prepaid receipt, and he immediately provided the parking decal, and directed me to the designated parking area. I was delighted. Paul G Knight"
"We have parked and tailgated at many sites around the stadium, this was by far the best experience we ever had. Access to the parking lot is very easy, we had 2 spaces and arrived early enough to find a shaded area to tailgate. The parking lot is paved and or grass, not the stones and dirt like some other parking space. Portable rest facilities were also available. We stayed until the game was over and thought we would be caught in the crazy traffic like on Bluff Road, but to our surprise Shop Road was less congested. We will use this parking facility every time we come to the games."

"Access was quick and easy. Was a little concerned about lighting after the night game but it seemed safe and was overall easy to leave afterwards. Whole area stayed clean even after tailgating."
