Stargazing and Camping

Saturday, December 2, 2023 10 a.m. to Sunday, December 3 at 2 p.m.

What are the chances that you get to see a shooting star in the starry night sky? Well, your chances will be pretty high if you come onto our Stargazing and Camping trip in Okeechobee, Florida! Famous for its lack of light pollution and open prairie lands, Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park is the ideal spot to do astronomy and stargaze. Enjoy the evening camping under the cosmos!
