Central Texas doesn’t fall within the Path of Totality for the upcoming eclipse, which means you won’t need a headlamp when the sun, moon and earth align at about mid-day on Aug. 21.
Plan things just right, though, and you could be staked out in front of a tent inside that special zone, getting a world-class view of mid-day darkness.
Hipcamp, an online site which partners with land owners to make open them up to campers, has posted a list of places within the 70-mile wide swath that stretches across 13 states, from Oregon to South Carolina. The list includes private campgrounds, national parks, RV parks and random privately-owned chunks of land where you can set up camp. Prices vary, but you can secure something for about $20.
