Townsend / Great Smokies KOA Holiday Events
2024 Total Solar Eclipse Weekend
The Great North American Eclipse will occur on April 8, 2024! During a total eclipse, the Moon lines up perfectly to fully obscure the Sun, resulting in "totality." Many people who have witnessed a total solar eclipse have described it as one of the most memorable moments of their lives. While Townsend is not inside the path of totality, it will still be an awesome opportunity to see a partial eclipse from the beautiful Smoky Mountains! There is an 87% eclipse expected to be visible in Townsend. Don't miss out! We are expecting campsites for this incredible event will be sold out early.
