Campsite Reservation Information

This is a camping week-end, so we encourage everyone to bring their tent or trailer. To guarantee one of the camp sites adjacent to the observing site, it would be best to register early. You will be assigned a campsite that will appear in your Confirmation email.

All Nova East campers pay for and register their campsite with us - do not register at the Park entrance.

Upon arrival, please check in at the Nova East Events Building at the Nova East site in the Park. One vehicle per site. Non-camping vehicles are not permitted in the Nova East campers area. Nearby vehicle parking is available.

Attendees who prefer campfires and white lights after dark are encouraged to reserve a campsite outside the observing field through the Park reservation system by calling toll-free 1-888-544-3434. For these campers, the Nova East registration form should include only the weekend registration fee of $35 plus T-shirts with no entry for camping.
