Looking for an adventure? Some amazing waterfalls, some hiking, some camping, some swimming and the Protected content ECLIPSE! Get off the beaten path and camp on the Solar Eclipse pathway! Protected content
Head back and stop for dinner at Mountain Rest Cafe (4.9 stars according to Google reviews) before we get to our campground.

Relax and chill by the campfire. Have some beverages and smores.

***MONDAY AUG Protected content and shine for breakfast. We'll all help prepare breakfast again.

There are a couple of short hikes only Protected content from the campground. Feel free to do that or just relax and do nothing. Or you can also pack if you're leaving after the eclipse.

Be at camp or our designated viewing area no later than 2pm before the solar eclipse, which is about 2:30pm. The whole eclipse should last about an hour and a half.

You can leave or stay for another night. Your choice! I have to head back to Charlotte Monday evening.
TOTAL COST FOR CAMPSITE FOR 3 DAYS AND 2 BREAKFASTS IS $75/person. Send $75 to my PayPal account at Protected content insures your spot. An RSVP alone does not insure your reservation. The camp site holds 5 tents. Maximum 10 people allowed. PLEASE REMEMBER TO BUY/BRING YOUR APPROVED ECLIPSE VIEWING GLASSES. You can buy a pair of glasses from the camp site but call them early at Protected content have them add the glasses to Simon Le reservations. They may run out of glasses so don't wait until the last minute. Or buy them now some place else. The campground is selling the glasses from American Paper Optics, one of the approved manufacturers recognized by NASA for solar eclipse viewing.

As of now, NASA and AAS only recognize five manufacturers with glasses that meet the proper ISO standards: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical, TSE 17, and Baader Planetarium (the products with AstroSolar Silver/Gold film only). The products from these companies must have the manufacturer’s name and address printed on the glasses, as well as a mark saying they meet the ISO Protected content standard. NASA and AAS aren’t actually testing these glasses themselves, though. Instead, the organizations are verifying that the companies that make these solar filters have tested their products at an accredited lab and have the proper documentation that says the glasses are ISO certified.
