At this location 2m and 39s of totality is predicted. We are making a portion of our pastures available for camping for this event. 2000' of elevation affords us pleasantly cool summers, mid 60s - low 80s. perfect camping! We already have campers coming from KY, TN, IL, OH, IN, GA, MD, MA, PA, MS, NJ, DC, AL, FL, TX, NY and Ontario.
Your $50/night is $50 for the entire 3 days if you choose - please just book the FIRST night you will arrive and book 1 NIGHT ONLY! If you are in a group larger than 4, book an additional night and I will reserve the additional adjoining campsites. Let me know in your note to me.
The Sat & Sun availability is due to uncertainty of traffic this event may generate and for those who want to travel before possible congestion in the zone of totality on Eclipse Day.
This is a working farm, surrounded by other working farms. In keeping with concern for your safety, and the consideration of our neighbor farmers and the peace of all the nearby farm animals please:
No open fires - camp stoves and grills only
We plan to have a local food truck on site for those who would rather buy meals than cook

We have many acres available so there are plenty of campsites.Each campsite is 12' X 30' and can accommodate up to 4 campers and will be large enough for a tent and a cooking area.

Keep in mind that cell phone service may be spotty regardless of your carrier here. Tennessee is expected to be the 2nd most traveled to state for the Eclipse.
Music featuring: AD6 from Crossville Tennessee "They come together from a background of roots, blues, psychedelic rock, punk and country. We are serving up greasy guitar riffs, smoky bass lines, and sweet beats to keep you on your feet." From Atlanta Georgia: The George Price Band. Many genres, but always intensely heartfelt. blues from slow & dark to smokin' hot, rock from fundamental to fusion, jazz from solo to Big Band, funk, disco and modern country. East of Nowhere Original indie alternative acoustic guitar-driven music, Celtic, mountain music, bluegrass along with rock, blues, and whatever else suits our fancy on any given day And from Chattanooga Tennessee comes Caney Creek Company. "It would be easy to categorize Caney Creek Company as a bluegrass band based on their lineup of traditional instruments. However, their sound continues to progress, often including elements of folk, and indie rock with equal frequency". Some fun for the kids will include Knockerball Crossville and country favorites, Corn Hole and Horse Shoes. Fixin's for S'mores at the Sunday night Bonfire! Not a good camp cook? We'll have Mountain Life Concessions and the Beef & Barrel food trucks and hot fresh coffee from Grinder House!
This will be in a field that will be turned back over to the cows for grazing after the event. You will be on grass, dress in appropriate clothing and footwear.
