Question about parking at Candlestick...

So I'm going to the game tomorrow and I'm wondering where the best place to park is? In my past experiences, parking has always sucked and getting out of Candlestick takes forever. Any suggestions as to where I should park?

Ain't that right. If I tell everyone, It'll take me 1 hour or more instead of a half hour to get to Alameda.

your best bet would be getting a parking pass. sometimes people sell them individually for like $25-$35 OR you can takes your chances and look for a scalper near the gate selling them for about the same price.

If not, then you can pay the $25-$35 parking in the dirt lots just outside of the main lot.

BART doesn't go anywhere near the stadium.

Good luck and enjoy the game

Leave during the 4th Quarter.

Leave after the game, 1 hour to get out of the parking lot.

If u get there before 8:30 like I do then u don't need a parking pass. Enter gate 1 and park as close as u can to the gate. U can leave as soon as the game is over and u can be back on 101 in less than 15 min.
IDK where you're coming from, but if you're planning on going 101S, a trick is to go 101N to 280S (1 exit down) then cross over back to 101S via 380
Well, here goes...

Don't park in the lots next to the stadium. At least me and wifey don't like to, it is packed tight and there is cars roaming through almost through the whole tailgate. We usually park in the dirt lots, which are $30, but are much much more casual, you get ample space, and they are filled as people are coming in... this means that no cars are driving through during your tailgate...

As far as after the game, we usually just tailgate after the game. We always plan on having lunch and dinner, and the game is typically an all-day event. If you leave midway through the 4th, you will get out fairly easily. Any later, and your going to be stuck in traffic for 90 minutes or so... and by this, I mean it will take about 90 minutes to get to 101S. We look at this like, why not tailgate for 90 minutes, get more blitzed (at least one of us), then drive home smoothly afterwards... But if you don't want to be there all day, then you gotta leave early unfortunately, unless you love to sit in your car and listen to 107.7 while stuck in traffic...

When you are going to the game, I would recommend showing up at around 10am, since if you leave any later, you are going to be stuck in terrible traffic. Now, we come from the south bay, so if we leave any later than 1030am or so, we wont get parked until 1230 or so, which sucks... I would rather sleep in my car, or drink, parked in the parking lot, than sit in 90 minutes of traffic waiting to park...

Okay, I have rambled too much....
I am from Reno and have attended 3 or 4 Niner games. We are going this weekend, and I need to know if would be better to Park, take the BART then the MUNI, or just park at the game? I parked once, but had a Lot A Parking Pass, took us a while to get out. But it will cost us like $60 to bring everyone in on the BART/MUNI plan. What do you think?
Just show up early and there is a very good chance you can buy one there at the gate for the main parking lot. Getting out is a pain in the ass regardless of where you park near the stadium. Its part of the experience. After the game, bust out the BBQ again, tailgate for another 1.5 hours while traffic dies down, then go home. I'd rather BBQ and continue having fun than waiting that hour+ in traffic.

if you need to get out of the stadium quick then public transportation is best
