May be going to Rome soon and was interested in seeing the eagle nest (and hopefully an eagle). Has anyone been and if so - where do you park and how hard/easy is it to get to where the eagles are? Also, it sounds like you can go to see them while school is going on - is this correct? Thx in advance!

Yes very easy to get to. Probably one of the few places in the world where you can see such magnificent creatures from the comfort of your car. Go through main gate with guard shack, continue straight back to enter round about, continue counterclockwise through round about until you get to the last road that was on your left when you entered. After leaving round about take first left and follow road through parking lot to back of the dining hall and gym. Look towards back of parking lot towards highway 27 where you entered the campus. The nest is in the back left corner. You will normally see a number of visitors and photographers standing there watching. There are barriers to keep people from getting too close but you can easily see the eagles. The babies are small now so you probably can't see them, but in a few days you should begin to catch glimpses of the tops of their head. Once they get a little bigger and begin moving around the nest they are easier to see. If you've been watching them, note what times of day the adults are bringing fresh food and try to go then, you might catch them bringing in the fresh meal, some times still kicking. As the eaglets get bigger the food deliveries become more frequent. Definitely worth the drive. Of course the view is nothing like the cameras but still fascinating.

You just need your driver's license to go through guard shack and then you can actually make the first left after the guard shack. 

 

Go up about 300 ft. and there will be a large parking lot to your left.  The eagles are in the far left of the parking lot and you will see benches to sit on and informational signs, etc.  Beautiful view!
