Oklahoma braces for total solar eclipse; all state parks sold out

In less than a month, Oklahomans will witness a total solar eclipse.

In Oklahoma, the complete solar eclipse will begin at 1:44 P.M. on April 8.

"Oklahoma is really lucky in that we have some percentage of totality at every single one of our state parks," said Tourism, Wildlife, and Heritage Secretary Shelley Zumwalt.

Zumwalt said three Oklahoma state parks will experience 100% totality during the April 8th total solar eclipse.

"The three main ones that have 100% totality are Beavers Bend, Talimena State Park, and Lake Wister," he said.

Zumwalt said Beavers Bend, in Broken Bow, 207 miles southeast of Tulsa, would be in utter darkness for over four minutes due to the eclipse's epicenter.

 Zumwalt stated our lodge there has been sold out for months.

In addition to the lodge, campsites, RV sites, and cabins are full.
