View the 2024 Solar Eclipse From These Campgrounds

The eclipse is only a few months away! Watch this fascinating astronomical event from one of these campgrounds located in the eclipse's "path of totality."

By now you’ve likely heard there is going to be a big solar eclipse this year — on April 8th to be precise. Why is this such a big deal? Because 31 million people living in a 100- to 123-mile mile wide band stretching diagonally across the U.S. from Texas to Newfoundland will be able to see the eclipse in its totality. The next widely visible total solar eclipse in North America won't happen again until 2045, which is why RVers are consulting websites now to figure out where to best see the eclipse. Several websites have produced maps that show so the “path of totality” of the eclipse, meaning the geographic area where the face of the sun will be completely blocked by the moon. These include EclipseWise.com and NASA's eclipse website.

You can then check GoRVing’s
campground search tool to identify the campgrounds in the cities you’d like to visit to see the eclipse. Many campgrounds have already identified themselves as being either in or near the path of the eclipse. These include:





New Hampshire

New York
