The church parking lot is located only 3.2 miles from eclipse centerline. A large Porte Cochere provides a shaded area for relief from direct sunlight for those needing it in the run-up to totality or afterwards.
We will have 110 parking spaces available, with another 10 RV spots, on FCC’s parking lot.
Each parking space (cars/SUVs/Pickups) will be $20/space, all day eclipse day (Monday) only.
RV sites (motor homes, 5th wheels, travel trailers) will be $150 per night; if bringing a tow-behind vehicle an additional $20 for the space will be required. RVs will be accepted on-site between 12:00 p.m. (noon) Friday April 5th and 12:00 p.m. (noon) Tuesday April 9th. Cars/SUVs/Pickups not associated with an RV may park on eclipse day only, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
No hook-ups for RVs or travel trailers are available.
Porta-potties will be available on the parking lot.

Reservations are not required, but are encouraged. Spaces are first-come, first-served. Once reservations reach the limits noted above, additional spaces will not be available. Cash-only payments for remaining spaces will be accepted at the parking lot entrance on eclipse day. Reservations for times earlier than Friday noon cannot be accepted.
We regret that refunds for parking space reservations due to unfavorable weather will not be available.

Meals will not be available on-site, but In/Outs from the parking lot are allowed during eclipse day.
