The 30 Best Campsites for the Solar Eclipse This April ūüĆö

To help you find the best camping in the country, each year Hipcamp compiles data from bookings, reviews, and ratings across more than 500,000 available sites. We use this to identify top-performing Hipcamp properties and crown the best Hipcamps in America for the Hipcamp Awards!

This year brings a very special category to kick things off: The Best Campsites for the 2024 Solar Eclipse, a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon taking place on Monday, April 8, 2024. To name these winners, we studied everything from camper reviews to weather patterns (to give you the best chance at clear skies). How were winners selected?
