Kansas Solar Eclipse

For those looking for Kansas 2024 Solar Eclipse Resources, here is a great start and guide. We have information about state park information to provide assistance and a centralized place for this information.

The majority of Kansas will be covered in some fashion due to its proximity to the totality and path to the eclipse, as the total duration for the entire state will be at least 2 hours and 23 minutes of at least 75.87% coverage. Although it won’t experience 100% totality, those in Kansas will have a great 2024 Solar Eclipse view!

State Parks

There are 26 total state parks in Kansas, with all 26 of them being in the path of the eclipse. There is a day use fee of $5 per vehicle. We recommend going to each place and finding where in the sky the eclipse will be visible as we cannot guarantee that the eclipse will be visible at each and every park from every location. This is because of weather and/or finding a spot that has a visible opening such as a forest that one can use for viewing.

The time shown are in CDT, central time, which is 1 hour behind the Eastern US timezone.
