The Best Of Penn State’s ‘Fan Caves’ Facebook Group

It is scientifically proven that Penn Staters are the most dedicated fans on the face of the planet. If you’ve been lucky enough to experience the hospitality of a true-blue Penn State alumnus at a tailgate, you’ll know that their love for Penn State is unmatched.

When these folks aren’t hanging around in Beaver Stadium or State College for a game, they’re hanging out, singing “Sweet Caroline” in their luxurious and unique Penn State fan caves.

More than 1,000 alumni and fans are part of the Penn State Fan Caves Facebook group to showcase their ultimate Penn State cribs. We’ve compiled the best Penn State fan caves for your jealousy enjoyment:

Shawn Kint

Can it get any better than a Penn State themed bar and Beaver Stadium wall art?

Mark Houseal

Houseal explained that he lost his original Penn State man cave to his three daughters and their doll houses. Even though his space was moved to the spare bathroom, he made it work. The best part? He put an Ohio State, Michigan, and Pitt sticker in the toilet for “aiming purposes.”

Devin Riley

Riley takes the lead for functionality. No need for a Penn State Zoom background when your own office looks this good.

Robert Pramik

Pramik’s striped bar detail and neon blue LED lights really add to the Penn State ambience. Not pictured is the gel coated bar top with paw print stickers underneath.

Matt McMillen

The ultimate flex is being lucky enough to own a JoePa cardboard cutout.

Matt Ronan

Check out that TV, folks! Ronan did a FANtastic job balancing the most important part of a fan cave, the huge-ass flatscreen TV, with framed jerseys of stars like Micah Parsons.

Matt Bene

Bene’s Penn State whiteout mural is bigger than the couch below it. If you stand in front of it, it’s like you’re staring right into the eyes of the student section.

Jared Glowaski

All you really need is a Fathead of Saquon Barkley to have the ultimate Penn State fan cave.

Keith Tressler

JoePa Wheaties. Bo Nickal. Cael Sanderson. These are the details that only a true Penn State fan would display.

Kara Michelle

Between the Penn State bar, the comfy leather sofas, and the blue and white tabletop shuffleboard, it would be tough to leave this basement each day.

Sean Trupp

Trupp takes the gold medal for the largest amount of signed memorabilia.

Caine Michael

Michael has more stuff in his fan cave than McLanahans’ stock on a Saturday morning gameday.

Dom Crocetti

This must be the coolest Penn State wall art piece out there. It captures the beauty of the Stripe Out and the cherished Nittany Lion all in one.

Thomas Foose III

The Rathskeller tapestry is one of the most unique Penn State fan cave details of all time. Only the OG Doggie’s fans would remember this one.
