    This was the first modern stadium to go retro and they did it well.

    Great sightlines, B&O; Warehouse blends in beautifully with the yard. Enter from Eutaw St. behind center field, and stop by Boog Powells BBQ stand. Heck, he even poses for photos too!!

    The first of the nice new stadiums, this one is a very good hitter's park. Orioles really needed this because Memorial Stadium was a dump.

    It's a nice stadium, and the people working there are friendly. But it's in Baltimore and nobody really wants to go to Baltimore. Also fans are really not enthusiastic about their team unless they are really winning. Great stadium design and an original of it's time.

    Beautiful stadium! The first one to finally get away from the awful cookie-cutter trend and give the fans some real, old-time baseball. There isn't a bad view in the house (and i've sat in a lot of wierd places in there), the ushers, concession folk, and ticket takers are all great, and just the smell coming off of Boog's BBQ is to die for. It's good to see Peter Angelos actually spending his money on something decent.

    This ballpark is to me right on top as the best ballparks of all time...I must say PNC Park has been my favorite one to date, but Camden Yards is right behind it..Great atmosphere, very friendly and family orientated. This one is defintitely a 5 in my book.

    The place that kicked off the whole retro wave. A beautiful park, great food, not a bad seat, and a total baseball atmosphere.

    This is the stadium that started the trend of today. All new stadiums are based on this one, so you can say all the new good stadiums are because of this one. Benn here a couple of times and the fans are nice, the vending is great. Boog Powells is the place to be. I really like this ballpark. It ranks up there with Miller Park and Balpark in Arlington.

    The best ballpark along with PNC to be built since '92. A true treasure for the sport of baseball and can be credited as the main reason why so many quality parks have been built since Camden Yards opened. Of all the stadiums, it certainly has had the biggest influence on the other teams with its "if you build it, they will come" attitude. Great fans as well.

    Wow. Not a bad seat in the place. Nice big scoreboard. The local fans seemed really friendly and eager to talk to me when I told them it was my first visit. Ushers were also friendly about me moving down a couple of rows after the 4th inning. Exterior architecture was very nice. No long wait for the bathrooms. . .you have to see this place!

    I've been there and it is nice. It doesn't have weird dimensions or a big stupid green wall, it's just a nice place to enjoy a baseball game. The french fries are terrible though.

    Aesthetically pleasing ballpark with that oldtime feel and excellent sight lines no matter where you sit. The food is pretty good and the venue is easy to get to. Unfortunately, this stadium is located in Baltimore, which is a rather tattered and tired city. The exposure to the sun in the right field stands can be withering and brutal.

    Nice facility, but it doesn't seem to be holding up well.

    Of the few baseball stadiums I've been to, this is the most beautiful and well designed and accomedating. I'm only upset I missed the minyon during the 5th inning.

    Often imitated, never duplicated. It amazes me that just a year earlier, that South Side dump (Comiskey II) was erected. Baltimore took a chance on a nostalgic park, and to this day, I haven't seen a finer park in my travels.

    Great ballpark. Clean and comfortable and good food. Modern amenities but doesnt have that Hi Tech feel to it. Easy place to relax and enjoy a game.

    Definitely the best of new retro-parks. When I first saw it as a young kid on TV I was fooled and thought it was an ancient stadium that's how beleivable it is. Only complaint is that it is another Right hand hitter park with power alley in 365-370 range.

    The best of the modern-day Elysian parks. With the exception of Cal's glory days, it's been painful to sit there, however.

    Truely a terrific ball park. The food was excellent. The seats are comfortable. The views from some parts of the ball park are a bit odd. The fact that the ball park is located so close to inner harbor, makes Baltimore a no-brainer for a weekend baseball trek. For those not sure, The Marriot is the closest hotel to the ball park and Inner Harbor is within a few blocks of the hotel.

    The retro champion on which all the pretenders are based.

    Even though it's before the Jake the Jake kicks Camden's Butt. However awesome atmosphere and check out the inner harbor

    The atmosphere of Eutaw Street and the warehouse really make this park. Walking through that gate, you can't help but feel excited about being out at the ballgame. The seats being so close to the action is another plus. The only drawback in my experience is that it's difficult to see the scoreboard from left field, because it's angled away to the right of home.

    Average new park..good eats...but some seats are facing an odd direction. I guess it just doesn't compare to THE STADIUMYankee Stadium!

    The best of the "Retro" ballparks. Eat some of Boog Powell's BBQ and enjoy a lazy summer afternoon with your friends.
