People hoping to stay in Casper for next year's Wyoming Eclipse Festival may be out of luck as hotel rooms are essentially sold out.

Casper lies directly in the optimal viewing path for the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, drawing hundreds of visitors.

Wyoming Eclipse Festival Executive Director Anna Wilcox says one hotel isn't taking bookings until January, but otherwise all hotels in Casper claim to be full for Aug. 21, 2017. She says some of the rooms have sold for prices as high as $750 per night.

Wilcox says there are still camping options for people looking to visit Casper for the eclipse and many people are renting their homes through companies like Airbnb.
