Where to book a campsite along the Solar Eclipse 2017 Path of Totality

On Monday, people within a broad band of beautiful locations stretching across the continental U.S. — known collectively as the “Path of Totality” — will be treated to a spectacular view of the full solar eclipse.

Hipcamp has taken the hard work out of trying to find the best spots possible along this arc to camp out and watch; they’ve put together an interactive map that lets users pick their favorite spot on the Path of Totality, beginning in the Pacific Northwest and stretching east and south to the East Coast.

Here are four of the best camping spots on Hipcamp to get a unique view of the complete eclipse. With less than a week left to plan, we suggest booking one sooner rather than later.

Sieg’s Valley View Ranch, Oregon

The perks of staying at Sieg’s Valley View Ranch include a water slide, your own little lake and the most-affordable tent camping in Oregon within view of the eclipse, starting at $50 a night.

There’s not much we can think of that’s cooler than watching the eclipse from a tree house, and at the Big Oak Treehouse at Selby Farm Horse Retirement, that fantasy can come true.

Normally the Treehouse allows only one party at a time, but because of the rarity of the upcoming eclipse, options have expanded to accommodate up to five parties. Added bonus: Pets are allowed.

80 Acres Pasture Volcano Views, Oregon

Raw grass-fed milk in the morning, the opportunity to learn cheese-making, plus expansive, unobstructed views of the 2017 solar eclipse? Sounds like the kind of place you’ll never want to leave.

The base price for a campsite at 80 Acres is $100 per night.

Granite Creek Ranch, Idaho

Hot springs and horseback rides: Yes, please.

Not only is Granite Creek Ranch 4,000 acres of secluded bliss in which guests will be able to witness the eclipse, it’s also a fourth-generation cattle ranch with 10 miles of roads and trails to hike as well as expansive views of Swan Valley, the Targhee Forest Mountains and the Grand Tetons.
