Thousand Trails and Top RV Influencers Power Up the ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Eclipse experience at once-in-a-generation event in Oregon this October.
The magic unfurls from Oct. 10-15, 2023, when a sprawling 175-acre field near Crater Lake in Klamath County morphs into a camper’s paradise. The highlight? A spellbinding 4.5-minute-long annular solar eclipse on October 14, marking Oregon’s final significant celestial spectacle for this generation. And when the sun sets, the energy rises as the legendary pop sensation, Smash Mouth, takes the stage.
Sara Irvine, the visionary behind EclipseFest23, exclaims, “The anticipation is palpable! A huge shoutout to Thousand Trails for championing our Eclipse Watch Party, offering the first 5,000 attendees special eclipse glasses for a safe and unforgettable viewing experience.”
Thousand Trails doesn’t stop there. Their booth, located at the heart of the Camper’s Hub, promises fun-filled activities ranging from cornhole games to spinning wheels for exclusive prizes.

Jennifer Tinney, Thousand Trails Director of Marketing and West Region Sales shared: “Thousand Trails is excited to partner with Eclipse Fest to put together a fun-filled weekend of camping, food, and music with immersive outdoor activities perfect for all ages.”
The festival isn’t just about the sun, stars, and music. Campers can enhance their experience by connecting with popular RV influencers: bestselling authors Marc and Julie Bennett of RVLove; mobile connectivity wizards Chris Dunphy and Cherie Ve Ard of Technomadia, national park enthusiasts Howard and Katelyn Newstate of Newstate Nomads; and RV and camping maestros Sandy and Mark Ellingson. They’ll be on deck for an interactive RV & Camping “Ask Us Anything” Q&A panel, mingle sessions at the Camper’s Hub, a book-signing rendezvous, and a ‘walking happy hour’ through the Spot2Nite campground to welcome campers on the festival’s opening day.
Harvest Hosts promises a nostalgic family movie night, featuring the classics – Shrek and Men in Black. Camper Swag Bags laden with surprises from Battle Born Batteries, Open Roads, and more, are the cherry on top.
Limited RV and Tent dry camping spaces are up for grabs. Starting at $160, campers can reserve your spot in the heart of the action for 3 or 5 nights between October 10–15. Premium on-site amenities include restrooms, wash stations, and dumpsters. A honeywagon service and water-fill service will also be available.
Festival-goers can secure an All-Festival Pass for $120 to immerse in a 3-day extravaganza of gourmet food, celestial viewing, vendors, activities, and, of course, the unmissable Smash Mouth concert.
And despite former lead singer Steve Harwell’s retiring from the band in 2021, and news of his recent passing, Smash Mouth continues to rock on with their new lead singer Zach Goode in a way that honors Steve, with plenty of fans expected to come out and do the same. The band is as popular as ever, celebrating the milestone of 1 million subscribers on YouTube this week.
