While Monday’s activities are open to both campers and the general public, please note that the total eclipse is expected to result in Paynetown SRA reaching capacity for parking very early in the day. We also anticipate that heavy traffic on State Road 446 will cause significant travel delays before and after the eclipse.

Because of these two factors, we recommend that you plan to attend our activities on Monday ONLY if you have campsite reservations for the prior evening.
