    Help: Iowa vs. Iowa State Parking

    For the third straight year... we are organizing a big crew of Kansas City Cyclones to roll into Ames for the game via a bus (see our ride at kcpartybus.com). Any advice on where this beast is going to be able to park? We don't mind leaving KC early to get there in time... last year we left my house at 3:30 AM (we pay for a driver) - the first guy claimed "All In" in the "back of the bus" card game at 4:15 AM - and we made it to Iowa City in plenty of time to grill a bit before game time.

    Again - we have created high expectations for this crew - and I am nervous about parking too far away from the excitement due to the difficulty getting an RV parking pass from JP unless you buy a tent ($3500 we don't want to spend). Am I missing something?

    Re: Help: Iowa vs. Iowa State Parking

    Id leave at 2:30am this year so you can make the 3-3.5 hours to AMes in time for the lots to open. Hoewever i have noticed the non official ISU lots are opening a lil earlier than the Hilton/Trice donor lots.
    So you guys probably wanna get into Ames Friday night, sleep in the bus and be there at dawn.

    Re: Help: Iowa vs. Iowa State Parking

    You need some boo-ku reps points for organizing that trip!

    Last year we parked our RV at a private RV parking lot in a prime location. It was about 100 yards east of the softball complex parking at the corner of Elwood Drive and 4th st.

    Try this link (It's the triangle section that looks like a giant finger print.)

    Edited: I remember reading JP bought land near there for extra parking pass parking this may have been the spot he was referring to, I'm not for sure.

    Just go ahead and spend the $3500 and get a primo parking space. Iowa State can use the money!!

    There are RVs that park in the lot along Elwood. At the corner of Elwood and S.16th, that is mostly students, but further back (south), there are plenty of busses and RVs in there. The lots open 6 hours before gametime, but for that game, I'd get in line at least two hours before that.

    You can also put RVs in the Vet Med Parking lot. You can park there Friday night too. It's on S. 16th. It's an adult crowd there, for the most part.

    Just park in the Iowa Hawkeye visitor spot. It is hard to tow a bus.

    Probably on one of the message boards, but I am sure it will cost a TON of $$$.

    Re: Help: Iowa vs. Iowa State Parking

    Yeah, this is the first year we will have an RV and plan to camp out the night before games. Too much $ to justify the RV parking pass so we'll just be up really early to get in line to get a prime spot in the grass lot.

    With all the construction going on at Vet Med right now will you still be able to park there overnight?

    I have parked there before but I perfer not to give my money to a private interprise if I can help it. You could go South a few 100 yards and than the $ go to ISU.

    Re: Help: Iowa vs. Iowa State Parking

    When I saw the title of the thread, my first thought was GOOD LUCK!

    I remember a couple years ago showing up to my donor lot and seeing Suckeye motorhomes parked in the spaces we had been using for years. I was not a happy camper.

    Re: Help: Iowa vs. Iowa State Parking

    The grass lot east of the IM softball and football fields is now donor parking and sold out. When I called on Friday all donor parking below the Gold ($1000) level was full.

    If you want university owned parking the lots around Vet Med are it.
