Top camping tips for the Total Solar Eclipse

Patience. Foresight. Really Cool Glasses.

You Need all 3.

  • All Oregon State Park Campgrounds are full. This is not the weekend to wing it!
  • Expect unprecedented traffic before, during and after the eclipse. Avoid travel on Aug. 21.
  • The usual conveniences may be hard to get to. Fill your tank and stock up early on food, medicine, cash and anything else you can't live without.
  • Cell phone service may become iffy.
  • Expect campfire bans in central and eastern Oregon.
  • Expect very high tides at the coast overnight: camping on the beach is risky. Overnight parking on the beach is prohibited.
