Located on the edge of a gorgeous woodland and oak savanna, the Star Field campground provides privacy and amazing nighttime views of the sky. We have the darkest skies around and this is the best location for stargazing. Pop your tent and watch the skies!

  • The campsites lie about 1/2 mile off the nearest gravel road, on a sandy flat trail, near the Star Field single track trails. Drive to your site on one of the surrounding ridgelines to unpack and then park in the overnight parking area (this helps reduce the chance of lights on the Star Field after dark).
