Green Acres will be a "family friendly" festival and campground. "Quiet time" will be observed after 11 pm. Disorderly, dangerous, destructive or illegal behavior will be grounds for immediate eviction. Well behaved pets on leash are acceptable, please clean up after them. Detailed camp regulations will be posted at the check in office.
All camping and housing units are located within walking distance of our events areas, food vendors, portable toilets, trash collection areas, and water fill station. Please let us know if you are elderly, handicapped or have other special needs. We will have hosts on site to assist with all concerns. Green Acres is located out of the glare of city lights for the event, and within 3 seconds of the maximum duration, yielding a "prime" location for the eclipse, and for night star gazing leading up to the eclipse.
Free events at Green Acres during the festival include music from 4-7, special guest speakers, nightly star gazing party (bring binoculars and telescopes), daily presentations on "what to expect" during the eclipse and how to be prepared to view it, and a Sunday morning worship service.

Information on weather, time announcements, what to do and see in Casper and the area, will all be available from our hosts.
Self Contained Housing: Due to the downturn in the Oil drilling economy, we have a generous supply of duplex self contained housing units available. Normally these units are in use, but because of the economy, are available, and comperable to a hotel suite, with a bedroom, bathroom, living area with satellite TV and kitchen. Some are divided in half, and some are larger units with bedroom and bath on each end with a open kitchen and lounge area shared in the middle. We recommend to reserve these units soon, due to housing demand for the eclipse, and the time and effort it takes to move and set up for the festival. These units cost $1050 including all taxes and fees.
Large RV Space: Green Acres has designated oversized lots of about 30x45 feet in area for RV, or Large Trailer camping, or for others that simply want a large space to camp in. The best locations will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
Standard Camping Space: Designed for most medium size, bumper pull, "pop up" campers, pickup bed campers, and "mini" campers. Lot size is about 25x35 to accomodate a trailer and vehicle, plus space for your umbrella table, etc.
Dependent Space: Please let us know if your camper is not self contained, and you need to be located closer to water and toilet facilities.
Tent Camping Space: Designated areas are about 20x20 for tent setup, with parking, and personal space. The tent campground area will be located near the water station and toilets.
