    It gets very crowded early. I have seen cars all the way down by the athletic fields when other parking runs out. Probably starts in the lower cadet lots, field house lot, possibly the visitor center lot. This is from the PW guide:

    Parking and Transportation
    Please plan to arrive early for all Parents’ Weekend events, especially the parade. Traffic, parking and security checks may result in
    delays getting to your destination. Remember, you and 8,000+ other guests will all be arriving at USAFA on Friday morning at about
    the same time!
    When you arrive on the base (please use the North Gate), follow the signs to visitor parking in the Cadet Field House and Reservoir
    Parents' Weekend 2012 Page 7
    parking lots (see map in this handout). Vehicles MUST be parked in designated parking spaces only—violators may be ticketed or
    towed at owner’s expense. There is no guest or cadet parking permitted in the Harmon Hall parking lot on Friday. Private vehicles
    may not enter the Cadet Area during Parents’ Weekend.
    Shuttle buses will operate from visitor parking lots on Friday, transporting guests to and from the various events within the Cadet
    Area. Guests are also welcome to walk from the parking areas. Buses will stop at designated bus stops (identified by signs and
    benches). Shuttle buses will run from the Cadet Field House parking lot to Jacks Valley for the tour on Sunday. No shuttles will run
    on Saturday or Monday (Labor Day). See map in this handout for bus stops (marked with a small bus-shaped icon).
    Throughout your visit, please be prepared with good walking shoes and bottles of water, since bus wait times may sometimes be
    longer than expected. Although handicapped shuttles will be available throughout the Cadet Area on Friday, there may be extensive
    walking required from bus stops to your final destination. Please make sure to consider this when bringing elderly or infirm guests to
    the Academy.
