Solar Eclipse 2017

Join us in Salem, Oregon for this family-friendly event from August 20 – 21 to view the magnificent total eclipse! We’ll have food trucks, dry campsites for cars/tents and RV’s, and an amazing view of the eclipse. Proceeds will be donated to local charities including Hope Station, Simonka Place, and Union Gospel Mission (local charities that support the hurting in Salem). So come have a fun time camping and watching the eclipse while supporting a good cause!

Morning Star is right near the freeway, making traveling from out of town much easier given the expected traffic of that weekend.
