Best Parking Near Lucas Oil Stadium
The only official parking lot at Lucas Oil Stadium has a limited number of spaces and fills up quickly on game day. So much so that the Colts don’t even mention it in the parking section of their website. They do, however, point out that there are almost 40,000 affordable parking spaces in lots and garages within easy walking distance of the stadium. Prices at these spaces range from $10 to a reasonable $30, though premium tailgating spots can go for as high as $100. The biggest factor in determining price is walking distance to the stadium. Generally speaking, the further away you parking from the stadium, the less you’ll pay. If you value convenience, expect to pay around $30 for a decent parking spot.
