This is from the Cherry Springs Official Website:

"Update 5/5/20: Effective May 8, reservable boating facilities and select restroom facilities will open in day use areas. State park day use and boating facilities will remain closed at this location through May 7. Family campsites and park offices will open on May 15. Cabins, unique houses, lodges, cottages, and yurts will open on June 12. All organized group tenting, organized group cabin camps, and pavilions will remain closed through June 15. All events of 25 or more people and all public educational programs are canceled through June 15."

 

This means that they could have the Cherry Springs Star Party, because it takes place after June 15th! Rock on!

I mean, I never got my refund, so I guess it's possible they could "un-cancel"?

Even though the Northern Tier of PA will be moving from "red" to "yellow"  social mitigation status at the end of this week per the state - the "yellow" status still prohibits groups of 25 or more people from gathering - which means, unfortunately still no star party. Hopefully they can move from "yellow" to "green" in time for the Black Forest party in September - but time will tell.

  To this point, two star parties in western Canada have not been cancelled.  This would be the Saskatchewan Star Party and the Mt. Kobau Star Party. The Saskatchewan one is held in a provincial park which is currently closed to bookings but these parties take place later in August so maybe....with fingers crossed.  There are two in September; the Alberta Star Party, and the Merrit BC Skygaze.  No word on these yet.  As much as I like star parties, being a at risk individual, I will give these all  a miss regardless.

FYI, although the star parties at Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania have both been cancelled, the restrooms are open as is the astronomy field.  I camped there for 5 nights sandwiching Memorial Day weekend.  The usual large group was not there, but there were a few diehards.  The showers at Lyman Run state park were open, which is the shower destination for many who tent camp at Cherry Springs.  

 

Some of my friends who were there are members of the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg.  My understanding is that refunds are being processed for pre-registrants of the Cherry Springs Star Party that would have been held only 2-1/2 weeks from now.
