Spring Training is the best way to see baseball for the true fan and the fan with young children. This is a great little stadium where no seat has a bad view. You are close to the field and the players - we could actually hear the infielders talking and we were sitting well back to get out of the sun. Excellent concessions with wide variety of offerings. Two extensive gift shops, one in center field is actually the larger of the two. Seats are reasonably priced. One caution - Arizona is hot, much hotter than Florida. Suggest night games OR sitting under cover of upper tier. If stadium not crowded, ushers do not enforce where you sit, so don't roast. Did not find stadium loud at all. If you have been to an MLB regular season game, these games are much quieter. IF you want to hear noise, go to a game in JAPAN. Japanese baseball makes American MLB games appear if played in a library. Japanese games mainly in domes and extremely loud and animated. Highly Recommend Camelback Ranch, check Groupon for ticket discounts.

Visiting my son in nearby Litchfield Park and wanted to do something different. My husband usually watches baseball on television and we decided we would take in a game. Getting baseball tickets was very easy from the ticket office. We had great seats and enjoyed a nice sunny day at the game. It was large enough that you were not sitting on top of each other and small enough to be able to get down to the field to get autographs from the players. We had a great time and will go again.

This is the second year in a row my group (10 dudes) have gone here to watch games. Since we live in Utah and don't have a local team to root for we pick a couple of different stadiums each year to see which ones we like the best. This stadium is top of the list now for sure. The announcer said that we were part of a record cactus league crowd (13K+!!!) when we were at the Saturday night game (March 23rd). The seats feel like they're a bit more roomy than some older parks and the park is just beautiful. Pro-tip: when coming and going from the stadium, go in and out on indian school rd, the next major street to the south. You can take 111th right up to the stadium and you won't have to deal with the awful traffic on camelback.

Camelback Ranch is a great venue for baseball. There wasn't a bad seat in the house, from our seats to the lawn area. All the staff that I came in contact with were helpful and friendly. I would gladly come back next spring but never stay in the hotel I stayed in this trip. You can check out that review under the "Holiday Inn North Phoenix". The one located on 28th Drive.

As a canadian I don't have many chances to see live ball. We watched the Reds and Dodgers. Sunny day, beer and footlongs. Staff was friendly and the shuttle meant we didn't have to walk or wait.
