Park
“On Ole Miss game days, tailgating tents cover most of the campus at this spot, centrally located in the University. Can be quite difficult to reach, and find parking during game days. I suggest finding a place to pay for parking, or get a shuttle there from Oxford High School. Great to go to sit and relax on a sunny spring, fall, or summer day. ”
