General Information:

-Attendance is by pre-registration only. No registrations are accepted at the gate.

-The star party is a rain or shine event, so it will not be rescheduled and no refunds are offered.

-The star party entry fee is $40 per adult (18 and older). Children under 18 are free, when accompanied by a paying adult, and we ask that any children attending be listed on registration forms.

-The entry fee covers camping (tents, campers, RVs, etc.) on the astronomy field for Friday and Saturday night of the star party and access to all event programming. You may arrive before and/or stay after the star party, but will need to pay the park ranger nightly. If you do arrive before Friday at noon, please check-in at the registration tent.

-Please note, registration for star party vendors is handled through the vendor coordinator, not this page.  Previous vendors will be contacted directly. If you are interested in being a vendor, speaker, or want to recommend a vendor or speaker, please send an email to
