Football RV Parking Sold Out; RV Spaces and Weekend Shuttle Available at Grange Park
Aug. 30, 2017
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.-- Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics announced improvements to 2017 Football Overnight RV (ORV) parking this past spring resulting from analysis related to overall fan experience and safety recommendations. Included in the improvements is an increase in space by more than 50 percent for each ORV spot as compared to last year, as well as accommodations to improve ingress and egress at the Overnight RV lot.
In June, Penn State announced that all game day and season RV and Overnight RV is sold out for the 2017 season. Fans who do not have a RV parking permit will need to make other arrangements and Penn State Athletics has partnered with Grange Park (see below) to provide an economical alternative with hook-ups and shuttle service to campus on Friday and Saturday of home football weekends.
Fans who have not already purchased an RV parking permit should not attempt to park in the official lots near Beaver Stadium. Those fans will be asked to turn around by police and traffic personnel, which will disrupt the flow of traffic heading to Beaver Stadium.

Penn State will provide security screening for all guests at the entry gates using metal detection wands. With this security measure in place, all public gates, including the ADA and student gates, will open two hours prior to kick off to provide ample time for all fans to pass through security.
