Dark Sky Preserves

Meteors & S'mores

  • We invite you to catch magnificent views of the Perseid meteor shower during "Meteors & S'mores" in participating state parks. The Perseid meteor shower is one of the best opportunities to see shooting stars with the naked eye. Bring blankets, seating, bug spray and snacks and enjoy a night of stargazing – campers and visitors are all welcome! Complimentary s’mores and campfires are part of the celebration. Designated viewing areas and viewing times will be specified at each park. 

    For Campers: To take full advantage of the meteor showers that will take place Aug. 9-16, we encourage you to make camping reservations throughout the week and to sleep under the stars. To check camping availability and make a reservation, visit www.midnrreservations.com or call 1-800-44PARKS.
