It is the home of the Oregon State Beavers of the Pac-12 Conference, and opened in 1953 as Parker Stadium. It was renamed in 1999, and its current seating capacity is 45,674. The FieldTurf playing field runs northwest to southeast, at an approximate elevation of 240ft above sea level, with the press box above the grandstand on the southwest sideline.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Reser Stadium by using our Corvallis tour planning app .
From 1910 to 1953, the Beavers played their home games at Bell Field (now the site of the Dixon Recreation Center), and also played as many as four games a year at Multnomah Stadium in Portland. In 1948, Oregon State president August L. Strand, athletic director Spec Keene, and Portland businessman Charles T. Parker (1885–1977) met to plan a replacement for Bell Field. Parker, a 1907 alumnus, kicked off the stadium fundraising campaign in 1949 and made significant contributions of his own. In 1952, construction of the stadium began. For Parker's efforts and contributions, the stadium was named in his honor. The first game was played on Homecoming, November 14, 1953, and the Beavers defeated Washington State 7–0. At that time the stadium was able to hold 28,000 people.

A quaint college football experience. I was surprised by the ease of the security, no metal detectors and limited screening. The restrooms seem old and outdated. The stalls had wooden doors, and mine didn't have a latch to lock it with. Concessions are limited, but decently priced. All-in-all I enjoyed my visit. Go Pokes!
Football atmosphere was a solid 2.5 on a 10 scale; metal bleachers for seating and a weird layout requiring a long ramp walk to seating. The upper decks looked truly terrifying to sit in; thankfully, good seats were easily available. The fans are (generally) very nice and welcoming.
