Waynesboro, 606 Gaither Hinson Rd, Waynesboro, TN 38485, USA

About the Event

This area of Tennessee is one of the few remaining light pollution free zones in the region. Imagine what the day will be like when the solar eclipse happens while you and any friends with you are spending time in the meadows "on the buffalo". Maybe you want to venture down the bluff trail to the river for this experience. *** You must bring your own eclipse viewing glasses and anything you choose to sit on. This is a non-alcoholic experience, but you may bring snacks or a picnic lunch as long as everyone takes their items on your way out.

This is an afternoon experience. Unlike a city view, where city lights may turn on, you'll be completely surrounded by nature and forest.

Options include:

Day trip only - book your car and the number of people

OVERNIGHT Sunday to Monday - camping or lodge rental (cars included, base rent for each house includes certain number of people and then add-on for your extras)

EXTENDED WEEKEND - camping or lodging (can include a Forest Therapy guided walk on Saturday) extended stay options should be booked at the same time. If you book for the overnight and choose not to extend, that ticket will be closed out. If something does happen and the reservation names are different, the extended stay option will be contacted to book alternative space that is open or must cancel - the only cancellation available for this event. Cannot accommodate turnaround for different guests on Sunday morning.

Space is limited. Book Today!

Additional experiences for the eclipse may include drumming and/or campfire circle. TBA.

NO refunds or cancellation. Weather permitting. Visit anyway and experience this even if there's spring rain! Connect to nature!

The start of the eclipse is around 12:40pm central time.
