There’s An Incredible Meteor Shower Happening This Summer And Arkansas Has A Front Row Seat

This year’s Perseid meteor shower just became active this week. The peak weekend for the shower will be August 11th-13th, 2018 which gives plenty of time for Arkansans to start planning their open sky camping trips for an incredible star show this month. Make a wish as we see which places are throwing star parties and where some of best meteor shower-viewing campsites are in the state.

Visit the Arkansas State Park’s website to view all of the upcoming star events or to plan an upcoming camping trip.

We would love to see your night sky and meteor shower shots in our Facebook Group, Arkansas Nature Lovers. You should join for your chance to be featured (like Chris Rogers today) and to discover why there’s nothing better than Arkansas’ stunning nature.

Here are some other fantastic camping spots around the state.
