Official Statement


Dear Campers,

We have some important updates regarding our Camp Cosmico schedule.

Sunday activities, including the lantern festival, have been cancelled.

After careful consideration and consultation with local authorities, we've made the difficult decision to cancel Sunday's activities, including the lantern launch.

This decision stems from our commitment to safety and quality, recognizing the challenges presented by the anticipated traffic expected to the area Sunday through Tuesday around the eclipse.

the Total Solar Eclipse Tailgate on Monday:

We're thrilled to transform Monday into a Total Eclipse Tailgate event, a safe and enjoyable gathering for all. We'll have essential amenities including food trucks and porta potties.

Tickets will be sold per vehicle, and you will be given eclipse-viewing glasses for each person in your party.

This is your chance to get off the highway and witness the eclipse's magic alongside a fun-loving community.

If you’re aiming to beat the Monday traffic, bring you tents and sleeping gear and join us for an overnight car campout.

Gates will be opening on Sunday evening for you to secure your spot in our spectator lot, providing a perfect spot to await the eclipse.

If you're planning on arriving Monday, we recommend aiming to arrive no later than 9:00 am to avoid heavy traffic.
