The 2017 Total Eclipse is something you definitely don’t want to miss! Eclipses happen with varying frequency, but total eclipses are something to set time aside for. This is the first total eclipse to hit the United States since 1979! Mark August 21st on your calendar and pick a spot to set up camp, Lost Campers can provide an affordable way to get you to where you want to be for this exciting phenomenon.

Start off at our Salt Lake City location to head up to Idaho! The Salmon-Challis National Forest is home to Mt. Borah, the peak is expected to get just over 2 minutes of total eclipse time. It is the perfect location to get a clear view of the action. Be sure to wear some eclipse glasses! It’s still harmful for your eyes to look at the sun even when the moon is blocking it. This national park is only about a 6 hour drive from our SLC location. If Salmon-Challis isn’t for you, there are still plenty of other places in Idaho to mark as your destination. Check out this map of the eclipse’s path to pick your best spot.

If you’d rather have a view from the coast for your 2017 Total Eclipse viewing, pick up in San Francisco and head north to Oregon. While you can catch a good spot to view in several Oregon cities, why not take this opportunity to enjoy some camping for your vacation as well? Oregon is known for its cloudy and rainy weather, but there’s projected to be a good chance of sunshine in the Deschutes Valley near Madras. Strong climbers may want to check out Mt. Jefferson as a potential spot to view from too! Its about a 10 hour drive from our San Francisco location to Madras, Oregon.
