Yes, i'm a Duke fan so I'm biased, but this place is amazing. The students are clear and classy with their chants. If you like college basketball and you can get tickets, you should go there just to have a better idea what it's like to play here.

I have been to Cameron many times, and I've seen Duke play in most of the road venues they frequent. I've seen badly failed attempts to copy the environment down to stealing 100% of the cheers. Nothing beats the real thing. The stadium is designed to be a sports antique like Fenway or Wrigley with a lot of Duke basketball... More

Cameron is the best place in College Hoops to see a game! It's also a great spot to visit anytime from 8-5 to see the special place that Duke plays, the Championship Banners and the Sports Hall of Fame which includes Duke Basketball! It's about an hour tour reading the history, seeing all the cool photos ,taking pics of the... More

We tried to call many places to see if Cameron would be open on football day. No one on the whole University could take the time to do that. So, we went because some of the answers on here said they usually keep the stadium open, well it wasn't open. Bottom line, just take you chance on seeing the place.

The energy in Cameron is electrifying. The stadium has never been enlarged so it feels like you are part of the action and there are no bad seats. If you are lucky enough to get tickets to a Blue Devils' game be prepared to scream and sweat for 2 hours straight!

So like any die hard college basketball fan, I may not like Duke but going to Cameron Indoor is certainly on my bucket list. Went there in February to visit my friend who goes there, got in line for grad student tickets to the UVA game and was given a wristband which is supposed to guarantee entry. Only problem was...

I'm a graduate of nearby Carolina so am not a Duke sports fan, but my husband is and we were able to attend a Duke Women's Basketball game against Carolina at Cameron and both really enjoyed it. It's small an intimate with understandable appeal - definitely try to get in to see a game there if you can.

Yeah, it's not what it used to be in the 1980s. But still, the best and most intimate place to watch basketball as God intended it.

This is the best basketball venue in the world. It's hot. It's loud. The seats are small. You do not have to get a second mortgage to buy a ticket, unless you want to see a Carolina (UNC) game. The cheapest way to see a game at Cameron is to wait until the students are on Christmas break and Duke... More
