On April 8th, 2024 a total solar eclipse will unfold directly above Riddle Point Park at Lake Lemon in Unionville, Indiana. We will have one of the longest totalities in the USA, coming in at four minutes and two seconds. This has not happened in our area in over 800 years.
Lake Lemon Conservancy District (LLCD) will open its 14-acre Riddle Point Park for an eclipse viewing experience like no other. Our parks rests directly on Lake Lemon reservoir, which is 1,650 acres and has 24 miles of shoreline. We will host camping for tents and RVs: 300 primitive tents, 20 small RVs, and 13 large RVs. Campers will begin arriving on Sunday April 7th at 10:00 am and can stay through Tuesday April 9th at 3:00 pm. Our uniquely rural lakefront park can accommodate 1,000+ eclipse viewers in a two-night camping event.
Each campsite includes four wristbands, four pairs of solar glasses for safe eclipse viewing, a few branded merchandise items, an event booklet, and memories for a lifetime. We will offer evening musical entertainment for our campers, food and beverage trucks, a “solar” plunge (think polar plunge), a large evening bonfire, educational activities (including local science educators), vendors, and family-friendly eclipse-themed craft activities.
The views and sounds during the total solar eclipse over our lake and around our park should be phenomenal. We would like to invite you to our park for this once in a lifetime event, The Great American Eclipse.
