Taking in the first basketball game of the year. Such a great time experience. One of the top sporting venues of all time. So much better than the usual huge arenas.

If you like sports, especially basketball this is the place to see if you are in the area. Walk the outer corridor and take in all the history. Arena itself is beautiful with wood and brass highlights. Great venue, not great audio though

Great atmosphere to watch Duke Basketball live! Even the uppermost seats have a good view as the stadium is that small! Join the Cameron Crazies in the cheers and jeers.

There is nowhere else in the country like Cameron Indoor. If you are a college basketball fan, a basketball fan, or a sports fan in general, you must make a pilgrimage here for a game at some point. It is so much smaller than you...More

This was my second visit in 25 years, and this one was even more special. I love that this stadium is so intimate and small. I got chills imagining the greats that played there as I walked on the gym floor. We were there for...More

What a great place to see a basketball game! I started attending games as a student in the early 1980s. It's been a consistently fun arena for Duke students and fans, but not so much for opponents! Renovations over the years have been welcome (like...More

As long as the tickets you purchase are legitimate (purchased through Duke Athletics) you will be fine with purchasing general admission. All of the lower level surrounding the Student Section is considered general... More

If you are in the lower level general admission area, then you will be standing on risers for at least a portion of the game. For a guaranteed view the whole time for the little guy, I would recommend purchasing a seat in... More
