Meteor Showers

Star-gazing will always hold a spot on the itinerary and sometimes we get to see that rogue star ripping across the sky. But since when is one shooting star ever enough? Let's take a stab at watching an interstellar phenomenon together, under a pitch black sky in the peacefulness of the forest.

Perseids Meteor shower - August 12-14

SOLD OUT!

The Perseids are among the greatest displays of falling stars we have the opportunity to see. Get ready for bright, fiery stars with long-lasting tails streaking across the sky. This trip occurs mid-week from Monday-Weds so we’ve taken $75 off the cost. We hope you can make it!

Join us at the Hidden Lakes to watch the show over reflecting water and under open skies.

Orionids meteor shower - October 20-22

SOLD OUT! Join us for the Geminids in December.

Ah, the peak of autumn camping. Enjoy changing leaves by day and an astronomical good time by night. Peaking on the 21st of October, the Orionids will have little interference from the moon this year. Did you know the Orionids are caused by debris from Hailey’s Comet as it passes by Earth?

We're heading back to the Hidden Lakes to share one of our favorite spots. If conditions are right we'll fill the days with exploration and wildlife viewing. This trip again falls during the week, from Sunday-Tuesday so we’ve discounted this trip $75.

 

GEminids meteor shower - december 13-16

With great risk comes great reward. Sometimes. For this time, we're gonna say "yes, great rewards abound!" Uh-huh, we're aware of December camping BUT the Geminids are the best show of the year with up to 100 meteors streaking per hour! Plus, we're heading way down south to the mild, late season climate of the Shawnee National Forest. Join us in the Jackson Falls area where we can explore waterfalls by day and observe stars over Millstone Lake at night.
