How to Host Campers for the 2017 Eclipse

On Monday, August 21st, a rare and phenomenal astronomical event is taking place in states across the U.S. For the first time in history, a Total Solar Eclipse will be viewed from sea to shining sea in a 70-mile-wide path stretching from Oregon to South Carolina.

Thousands of nature enthusiasts are flocking to this “path of totality” leading up to the Eclipse. In fact, this is expected to be the most viewed solar eclipse in human history.

If you own land near the path of totality, you can join thousands of landowners who are earning money by hosting campers for this historic event. See who of your neighbors is already hosting for the Eclipse!
