Total Eclipse Weekend at Hickory Knob
August 18 - August 21
Join us on Friday, Saturday and Monday nights at Hickory Knob Resort State Park for Solar Eclipse Happy Hour. The park will feature half price beer, wine and appetizers. Enjoy a featured beer Carolina Blackout brewed in South Carolina (not included in Happy Hour prices) to commemorate the Solar Eclipse. Saturday evening we will celebrate this celestial event by having Galactic Pizza night in our restaurant! Commemorative Tee shirts will be on sale in our gift shop along with special safety glasses! Enjoy a campfire under the stars in our amphitheater overlooking the Savannah River. WiFi is available at Hickory Knob lodge so you can tune in to NASA LIVE STREAM OR NASA TV to view the eclipse anywhere in its path.
On August 21, a ranger will be at our sister park, Baker Creek (which is 5 miles away), to direct those interested in viewing the total eclipse there during its 25-second window. Driving to Abbeville will afford a full two-minute eclipse. McCormick has a one-minute window and their library is hosting a viewing event with glasses. The bandwidth of the eclipse is only 60 miles, with locations near Greenwood and Columbia, having the longest duration. Bring the family for this celebration of the sun with weekend activities like swimming, golfing, boating, kayaking, skeet shooting, hiking and fishing.
