About Glenrock Eclipse 2017 Camping
A total eclipse of the sun is a once-in-a-lifetime event. The Great American Eclipse will take place on August 21st 2017.
We can accommodate tents, campers and RVs.
Scientists and armchair astronomers nationwide will get the chance to see a total solar eclipse, marking the first time the phenomenon has occurred from coast-to-coast since 1918. This will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States since 1979.
Because of Wyoming's elevation and clear skies, it is the best place to observe the eclipse. Glenrock lies about half way between Casper and Douglas. Not only does Glenrock have good weather prospects, but also uncrowded highways that extend west, east, north, and south that could be used for every weather contingency. There are many events and activities planned in the area during the eclipse week. Among these, the Astronomical League chose Casper to hold their annual Astrocon Conference just before eclipse day, Pioneer Jubilee and historic re-enactments (Glenrock), covered wagon train treks (Casper), the Wyoming State Fair (Douglas), and many more.
Mitchem Ranch is located right off Interstate 25 at the Glenrock Exit 165 with beautiful views of Laramie Range mountains and Deer Creek Valley. It is near the cernteline of the eclipse path with about 2 minutes, 23 seconds of totality. Mitchem Ranch is offering camping for the week of the eclipse activities from August 16 to 23. We welcome both RVs and Tent Campers.
