Observatory at Camp McGregor

  • FREE Stargazing Opportunities at the Camp McGregor Observatory  
    Located on Crispell Lake at 10380 Adams Rd., Clark Lake, MI  49234
    The JCISD offers free public stargazing events at our Camp McGregor Observatory. These viewings are supported by trained personnel as a way to share the night sky with the community. Each stargaze event will be held on the dates shown below (depending on weather). Since stargazing is an outdoor activity, be sure to dress appropriately for the changing nighttime conditions in Michigan (cold, mosquitoes, dew, etc).

    As always, weather permitting!  If cloudy or inclement weather exists, viewings will not be held or could end early.  Call the Observatory Hotline:  517-990-8004 to check for cancellations. (Please note that this number is a recording only). Thank you for your interest in our Observatory. 
    Quietly sitting in the southwest corner of the county far away from the city lights is one of the most high-tech telescopes in the state of Michigan ... an astronomer's dream waiting to show off the stars!
