Madras 2017 Solar Eclipse - Camping

Things are going to be pretty crazy in the small town of Madras around the time of the solar eclipse (August 21, 2017), and we'd like to help visitors out with a convenient place to stay, and a perfect location to view the eclipse. We have 5-day/4-night (Aug 18th - Aug 22nd) campsites available, and the going rate is $550. The sites are for car campers, RVs, bikers, and anyone equipped for camping a few days.

  • Portable restrooms nearby
  • Potable water (please bring a container)
  • Multi-use spaces to accommodate an RV or multiple (up to 2) vehicles
  • A convenience store (stocked with a limited supply of essential goods)
