Really good value for a major league park - $49 tickets got nearly the best seats in house (20 rows back on field level behind home plate). Easy to walk to from local hotels, decent food at decent prices (for a stadium) and really pleasant experience overall. My only comparison are the NYC baseball stadiums which are incredibly expensive and difficult to get in and out of so this might not be the best comparative review but really a nice stadium, overall. It's lack of higher tech goodies (like pitch speed and pitch count monitor on scoreboard) is compensated by price and accessability.

Camden Yards is a great time for both couples and a family trip while in Baltimore. They have all your typical ballpark cuisine plus local fare right in the stadium, and you can get beer from all over. A must visit if you're in town during Baseball season.
The most beautiful ballpark of all?

You don't have to be a baseball nut to enjoy this unique stadium, built solely for baseball. Since it hosted its first Baltimore Orioles major league baseball game in April 1992, Camden Yards has been often described as the most beautiful ballpark in the Major Leagues. If that is true, it's not only because of a great "retro" design, which has influenced almost all of the 22 Major League ballparks built since 1992. But it's especially true because of its setting facing the extraordinary B & O Railroad warehouse, built in 1899. Over 1,100 feet long and 8 stories tall, the fortress-like warehouse acts both as a delicious target for home-run hitters and as a beautiful foil to the irregular shape of the ballpark. Eutaw Street, a pedestrian way, runs between the ballpark and warehouse and is filled with eateries, shops and food stands before and during each game. The ballpark is called Camden Yards because it was built on the site of the old, abandoned B & O railyards. Walking under the warehouse you find the historic Camden RR Station and the end of the line for "MARC Line" commuter trains running between Baltimore and Washington DC's Union Station. The rail line offers a great way to get to a game without driving. Just to the west at 216 Emory Street is the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum, the fully restored home where he was born in 1895. It's about two blocks from the northwest corner of the ballpark.
needs major improvement

I took a friend to watch the Orioles play on April 12. 2014. The sign-age to find the parking lot we purchased tickets for was TERRIBLE. My friend is disabled, and the journey through the parkings lots was way to much for him. The parking was supposed to be handicapped accessible. We did see some shuttle buses and were told they are for employees only. Luckily we did find help from a golf cart shuttle, who only managed to take my disabled friend to the gate and 4 other healthy people to gate C. The result being that my friend and I were split up and he had to stand and wait on me to arrive at the gate.We were told the golf cart shuttle was available after the game at gate C. Never saw any shuttle service after the game. We did see plenty of homeless people asking for handouts. The stadium itself is fine, food and beverages are okay, but overpriced.
Fun on a sunny day

Arguably, one of the most scenic ballparks! You can see the Baltimore skyline and the building nearby. Now that the O's are hustling, it is even better! Dress somewhat warmly, as many of the seats are not in the sun and the stadium can get pretty windy. Look for Fancy Clancy, the beer man who entertains just as well as he serves!
