BATON ROUGE, La. - Two parking lots near the LSU campus will be available for parking of motor homes for fans attending the LSU vs. Alabama game on Saturday night.

The LSU-Alabama game is sold out and LSU officials expect overflow parking conditions for recreational vehicles.  Game time is set for 8 p.m.

The Argosy Casino lot on River Road approximately two miles north of the LSU campus has become a traditional parking area for motor homes from Alabama.  Shuttles to the game will be available at the Sheraton Convention Center Hotel near the lot, and an Alabama pep rally will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Sheraton Atrium.

Farr Park Campground, approximately two miles south of the LSU campus on River Road, can also accommodate motor home parking.  There is also a shuttle bus that runs to Tiger Stadium from the Farr Park Campground.

Both parking lots are located on River Road, which runs parallel to the Mississippi River adjacent to the LSU campus.
