Get ready for your moment in the sun! The 2024 Great North American Eclipse is just around the solar system on April 8, 2024, and it’s going to be epic! Arkansas is one of only a handful of states in the path of totality, and the Diamond Lakes region is PERFECTLY positioned for a stellar view of our favorite star. 

2024 Solar Eclipse Begins
April 8, 2024 | 12:31 P.M.

As often happens, the Diamond Lakes will be at exactly the right place at precisely the right time. The path of totality is a thin, 100-mile band where the moon aligns perfectly with the sun, and the whole area sits right at the center. No place in North America will have a better view!

What makes the Diamond Lakes such a great place for skygazing? Two things - the view and the amenities. The region is home to five lakes, three rivers and breathtaking mountain views. Pair that with all sorts of cool and convenient lodging, and you have literally the perfect place to watch an eclipse.

The moment of totality, when the moon passes in front of the sun, will last for three minutes. Finding the perfect spot to be when it happens means planning early. Reserve your spot now and don’t miss the 2024 Great North American Eclipse!
