Solar Eclipse 08-21-17

We did experience "Totality" at Long Ridge Campground for a wondrous 

2 minutes and 25 Seconds!  

The clouds held off and we were able to witness the entire spectacle without any interference from the elements!!

Everyone enjoyed the experience of a lifetime - from the youngest children to the most seasoned  campers among us.

Our guests were so excited and willing to share their captured images of the event that we have created this special section - devoted just to these pictures.

Whether you were here and witnessed this in person or were unable to view this where you were - we know you will enjoy  these amazing amateur photos!  

We will add more photos as they become available. 

​These photos are compliments of Cliff Barnett and Vivien Statham - thank you so much for sharing!
