US Army Corps of Engineers announces early opening of campsites at Greers Ferry Lake ahead of 2024 solar eclipse


The Little Rock District plans to open the following sites 60 days early and leave them open for the remainder of the 2024 recreation season.

Parks opening fully on March 15, 2024, in Arkansas:

Greers Ferry Lake

  • Dam Site
  • Old Highway 25
  • Heber Springs Rec
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Devils Fork
  • Choctaw
  • Cherokee
  • Mill Creek
  • Sugar Loaf
  • Shiloh
  • Narrows
  • Hill Creek
  • Cove Creek

Normally, only Dam Site, Old Highway 25, Heber Springs Recreation Area, John F. Kennedy, Devils Fork, and Choctaw parks would fully open on March 15, with the remainder of the parks opening on May 15. This change will open more than 430 additional sites to accommodate the eclipse visitation.

Reservations can be made online through starting Oct. 15, 2023. Reservations via phone or email cannot be accepted.

Greers Ferry Lake falls within the path of totality for the eclipse on April 8, 2024. The path of totality is the shadow of the moon crossing the Earth, where the moon fully covers the sun.

The US Army Corps of Engineers in Little Rock manages $3.1 billion worth of public infrastructure, including 12 reservoirs, 13 navigation locks and dams, 7 hydroelectric power plants, 146 public parks, and 308 miles of navigation channels.
