Eclipse Events – Where to Stay

Please make your reservations soon, as motels are filling fast in anticipation of the Big Event!  Please note that many camping areas are on a first come/first serve basis.

UPDATE: We are not aware of any rooms or campsites left in Grand Island. Neighboring towns connected by highways, such as Hastings (20  miles), York and Kearney (44 miles on either side) still have rooms available. Also, some Grand Island rooms may be available for all but Sunday night, August 20th; you may have to move for one night.
