The Solar Eclipse of 2024

Searcy County is "The Best Place on Earth" to view the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse, so says California author Amanda Rose! April 8th, 2024 as we will see a Total Solar eclipse here in the gorgeous Arkansas Ozarks! Why? Naturally Dark Night Skies, the Buffalo National River, Ozark Mountain Spring Scenery, Abundant Waterfalls, Great Trails, Live Music, Great Food, Great Airport & Fly-in Destination, etc. 

Outside Magazine has named the Buffalo National River as one of the Seven Best Places to see the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse! Top Seven in the World! Searcy County hosts approximately 48 miles of the Buffalo National River and it's ALL IN 100% TOTALITY! Of course the Dark Skies of the Buffalo National River should make us a stellar location! From Leslie to Pindall, Witts Springs to Harriet, Snowball to Oxley, St. Joe to Gilbert, Big Flat to Marshall! We are ALL IN! Come to Searcy County for the eclipse! Eclipse website: Outside Story:

People from all over the world are already making plans for this spectacular event! Event planners are underway to ensure that Searcy County will be a great place from which to view the eclipse.

And don't wait until 2024 to make your lodging reservations. Historically, hotels, cabin rentals, lodges, RV parks, and campgrounds sell out months in advance as people come to have ringside seats. 1.3 million visits to the Buffalo River in 2022!
