this stadium is home to the Iowa Hawkeyes football team. Recent facelift- kids activities in the front of the stadium (the Krause family plaza) before football games- lots of vendors, food trucks for tailgating before the game. Parking limited, nearby neighborhoods often have parking for a fee- or park downtown Iowa City and walk over the Iowa River bridge to... More

Nothing beats Kinnick on a Fall Saturday afternoon! Rabid fans, great football, exciting atmosphere in a 1929 throwback stadium with bench seating (unless you pay big donor bucks to sit in the plush press box overlooking the field). Go Hawks!

The atmosphere here was like no other, even for having a blizzard the precious night. Great job to the workers that took care of the field! Beautiful inside and out!

What a great stadium to go to and see your beloved Iowa Hawkeyes play a game. Nice big statue of Nile Kinnick out front, nice brick work and beautiful grounds. Better to park on a side street and walk so you can get some good food and buy some shirts. Tailgaiting here is top notch

great crowd, sufficient standing room and the final to an amazing season of the hawkeyes. we went there during an unusually snowy weekend and they did a good job cleaning off the field. the seats were still covered so keep that in mind should you ever go on a snowy day!

I may be a biased Hawkeyes fan, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better college football atmosphere than what you'll find at Kinnick. Food vendors set up outside the stadium, great crowd, tailgating galore, and still that feel of good ol' Midwestern hospitality! The one possible negative is that there isn't parking right near the stadium, but they... More
