Give your guests an experience they'll never forget!
The Robert Ferguson Observatory is available
for private rentals.
Imagine having three beautiful telescopes and a cadre of knowledgeable docents ready to host your family, friends, school group, Scout Troop or other group—up to 50 people!
Our docents can tailor an evening to fit your needs and give you a night you'll never forget.
A large group campground is located adjacent to the Observatory.
It has a spitted barbeque pit, picnic tables for 50 guests, an area for tents, and adjacent parking large enough to accommodate RVs.
The PlanetWalk and other hiking trails are nearby.
Enjoy the quiet beauty of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park during the day and spend quality time with RFO telescopes as late as you want—without having to drive home.
"You guys were awesome! Thank you so much. The kids not only had a lot of fun, but they learned a lot, too....That observatory really is a key to opening those young minds. Thank you."
—Clay (Cub Scout Pack 128, Sebastopol)
