The Sonoran Desert-inspired home to the Dodgers and White Sox, Camelback Ranch was completed in 2009 and boasts a capacity of 13,000—including 3,000 lawn seats, 12 luxury suites and a party deck. It is adjacent to a manmade lake and a traditional Dodgertown orange grove that sits on the east side of the property beyond the leftfield wall of replica Dodger Stadium.
Address: 10710 W. Camelback Road, Glendale. See it on a map.
Parking: The complex boasts 4,000 free spots. If those are taken, the west lot off 107th Avenue is closest to the stadium.
Best place to sit: The Ranch doesn’t have bleachers, so every seat includes a back. But to live it up in complete comfort, head to the suite level for the 100-person capacity, completely shaded Eighteen|76 Legends Deck.
Concessions: Enjoy beer, margaritas, soft drinks, hot dogs, burgers, Philly cheesesteak and gelato.
