2017 Solar Eclipse

All Oregon State Park sites are booked. Visit eclipse camping if you have reservations and need campground maps for the overflow sites.

Can I get a campsite on a walk-in basis?

Oregon State Parks does not have any first come, first serve or walk in sites in the path of totality the nights of Aug. 18-20.  All available sites were put on the reservation system for this event. You will be turned away if you go to a park in or near the path of totality without a reservation.  First-come, first-served camping resumes Aug. 21.

General park information is available by calling the Oregon State Parks information line, 800-551-6949.

Are there camping options available at facilities outside of Oregon State Parks?

Aside from Oregon State Parks, there are numerous city, county, federal, and private campsites across the state. 

Oregon Festivals & Events Association is a resource and clearinghouse for additional camping. Visit the search page and narrow your search to the category Eclipse Camping 2017 and month of August.
