Camp and View the Total Solar Eclipse at the historic site of the1838 Mountain Man Rendezvous in Riverton, Wyoming. We offer the best of all worlds with shady campsites, open areas for viewing the eclipse, outside city limits for less light pollution at night, on a nationally known historic site of an original mountain man rendezvous. We will have portable bathrooms and water on site. This is a primitive site, there is no electricity, running water, sewers, or dump stations, however, generators will be allowed during certain hours.
Additionally, we will have limited number of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners available, and a refreshment stand serving soft drinks, beer, and water. It is recommended that you pre-order meals to assure availability.
We have plans for entertainment Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights at no cost to campers. We also have several ponds and the river where you could fish (with a license) or swim. Other activities throughtout the days on Saturday and Sunday are being planned. We will be primarily focusing on the Mountain Man Era (Riverton is known as the "Rendezvous City") and will providing activities such as the tomahawk and knife throw, black powder shooting demonstrations, historical tours/seminars on the relevance of our site, kids' games of that era, and others to be determined.
Saturdaynight entertainment booked! Many Strings and Company - a "Western Rag" duo. Sunday is booked with "Packin the Mail", a traditional Western singing group, and Monday night there will be a Square & Round Dance ( for novices).
