The Great American Eclipse


On Aug. 21, 2017, millions of people from across the world will gather to witness one of nature’s most breathtaking sights: a total solar eclipse. The last one spotted in the continental United States took place in 1979. This one will carve a path across the entire country – and Nebraska happens to be a prime spot for viewing it.

As you’re deciding exactly where you want to view the eclipse, keep our Nebraska state parks and recreation areas in mind. They’re some of the most beautiful areas in the state, and there’s plenty to do when you’re not busy eclipse-viewing.

Below is a full list of all the state parks and recreation areas where you can view the eclipse. Some of our more well-known parks made the list, such as Indian Cave State Park, Fort Kearny State Historical Park and Fort Robinson State Park.

Many parks will be hosting events concurrent with the eclipse. Check back soon for details.

More information on the eclipse path through Nebraska, as well as general information on the eclipse, are available online.
