WVU Football Parking

I am heading up to a WVU football game next Saturday, Their first game - I was wondering if someone could suggest a good place to park for tailgating before the game - I know you need parking passes for most of the WVU lots. Looking for a reasonably priced cash lot

Someplace relatively close to the Evansdale Campus that allows grills

Thanks

I wish I could be more help, but I can't give you exact information. So, I'll try to point you in the right direction.

Your best bet would be to post to a "sports" message board and ask your question. Or, you can search them without having to post. I'm sure the question has been asked many times on those sites. Here are a couple that I know of:

There are several churches on Patteson Drive that charge a small fee for parking, but I don't know if they allow tailgating. The CMA church (beside Krepps Park, just down from the Coliseum) used to have free parking and had free food. I don't know if they still do that or not, but you could call them at 304-599-4549. The Lutheran Church next door charges about $10 to $15 for parking, but I don't know if they allow grills or not.

If you are a member of the Fraternal Order of Elks, the Morgantown Elks Lodge (on Chestnut Ridge Road, above the stadium) has a great deal with parking/ food and drinks/ and transportation to the stadium.

If you find a place to park that does NOT allow tailgating, you may want to consider going to the party at the new Alumni Center. You don't have to be an alumnus to join in. The center is near the stadium, and the party looks to be a good time. Here's some info:

Again, sorry that I don't have more definitive info, but hopefully you can find what you are looking for from the links above.

Go Mountaineers!

I don't know if you can find what you want at this link or not. Maybe. It was the best I could find on WVU tailgating. Even though it says "Texan" it is about WVU....
