Don’t Camp On Oregon Beaches To See Eclipse

In Oregon and thinking of camping on the beach to watch the eclipse? You may want to rethink that.

According to Portland’s KATU, Oregon State Park officials say that beaches along the Pacific coast will experience very high and very low tides on Aug. 21, the day of the eclipse.

This means a very low tide will expose a lot of the beach late into the night of Aug. 20 and into the early morning hours of Aug. 21. Then a high tide of more than 9 feet will take over the beach, ruining your sleeping bag and other belongings.

Camping is prohibited anyway on the beach immediately seaward of a state park.

There’s no overnight beach parking anywhere.
