Camping at Faunt Le Roy Park

The City of Gatesville has opened RV and Tent spaces at Faunt Le Roy Park for eclipse visitors.

The park is along the banks of the Leon River and is within walking distance of the

beautiful downtown area  which will be the site of a festival on Saturday and Sunday.

The park will be a great viewing area, or campers may choose to travel to the

Gatesville ISD stadium for a viewing event, or to the Gatesville Sports Complex where

NASA ambassadors will be available to guide you in a unique and educational viewing experience.

Join us as we experience 4 minutes, 23.9 seconds of totality!
