What does that mean? For starters, it means that we can see the milky way. The remoteness of Lake City comes with several benefits, such as peace and solitude, but we're here to champion what it comes without, light pollution. The Lake Fork Valley is home to some of the darkest skies on the planet, making this an ideal destination for both professional astronomers and casual stargazers.

It doesn't stop there though, because conservation work doesn't end when the sun goes down. In fact, that just when the fun is getting started. Here at the LFVC, we understand the importance of protecting the darkness for the betterment of nocturnal wildlife.

Summer 2023 Calendar Coming Soon....

The Lake Fork Valley has world-class night sky quality.
