Morningstar is tucked into the undulating Ozark landscape that makes up picturesque Eureka Springs. Camp host Kimberly allows campers to hike in and camp just about anywhere on the 13 acre woods. We choose to camp just beyond spring waterfall near a rock face. We were surrounded by towering trees above a deep ravine and below bluffs.

There's backcountry hiking throughout the acreage as well a few groomed paths. During a hot day you'll be sure to dip your feet in the cool spring pool next to the dripping waterfall. Kimberly says that the little waterfall keeps going no matter the time of year.

Be sure to spend time in quaint Eureka Springs, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The town is stuck in time and tucked into the valleys and ridges that make up the landscape. You'll have find tons of places to eat and shop between exploring the pristine wilderness of this northern Arkansas' Ozarks town.

Kimberly is a phenomenal hostess! There is a restroom inside the house available (we tried to only use it during wakeful hours, but she didn’t restrict use). We camped behind the house because the hill drop off was very steep and I had a hurt foot where I could not hike all our gear down. I would recommend having all your gear in backpacks if you are planning to take it to a remote place on the property. We were thinking there would be more flat land to pitch our tent but couldn’t access any close to our parking near the house. We couldn’t hike our gear down without multiple trips up/down a very steep drop off, so we had to camp near to the house. There were multiple outdoor seating balconies and a small grate for a fire in the backyard with one particularly good view from the covered balcony.

Loved it here! First time using Hipcamp, truly a great first experience. The views are incredible. Only went inside the house for water, but they have a very nice dog Zoe. The gazebo was perfect, especially since it was a rainy weekend, we didn't have to be cooped up in our tent. Five stars!

Campsite was GREAT
HOWEVER, the host Kim, was extremely uninformative. the directions take you to the parking lot. She does not explain how to get to the actual campsite. Thank God for Star, someone who lives with Kim, she showed us how to get there. The hike to campsite 2 includes a treacherous hill. There is a way to drive there to at least drop your stuff off to avoid the hike there, but Kim will not tell you that. DO NOT PARK BY YOUR CAMPSITE. She will come down and tell you to move. The wilderness is great, peaceful, and private. Very close to downtown.

What a beautiful property this is. Kim was very nice, welcoming and kept her place extremely tidy. The pictures really don't do this place justice. We still decided to add to the collection. A little side note to those looking to stay here. Please pack your crap out and leave the place better than when you arrived. Half of the trash we hauled out was left from the people before. Be respectful so Kim will let people come back.

This was a beautiful secluded campsite only a few minutes drive from mainstreet eureka springs. The campsite provided plenty of shade during the day.

Kimberly was a gracious and friendly host. The area is beautiful. There were some logistical challenges on MY end that prevented us from staying at the actual Morningstar property as-booked, but she welcomed and accommodated us on a nearby property. It was a lovely area, and private enough that I didn't mind leaving our camp unattended during the day.

This spot is amazing. It’s a little tough because you can’t pull your car right up to it, but definitely worth it. There’s a cabin probably 200 yards away, but otherwise it’s totally secluded. The spring and caves are beautiful. Kimberly was great. Will come again.

This property is absolutely amazing!! Now than we could have ever asked for. Like this is favorite campsite ever. Been to maybe 10-15 in my lifetime.
We chose the backyard camping since we have a huge tent and lots of stuff. We chose to camp close to the large covered gazebo with a stunning view. Thankfully it didn't rain, but this would cover you for unpredictable weather. It has a round table that seats plenty of people. This spot would be perfect for a family and we highly enjoyed it as a couple with two dogs.
She leaves the front door unlocked too use her bathroom, which was highly appreciated.
We walked down to the other campsite. If we were lower maintenance or backpackers, this campsite is incredible as well. The spring is gorgeous and the camping area with the huge rocks, where one I felt like I could almost live under if necessary or primitive times lol.
Also the location!!! So close to adorable Eureka Springs. The value on this place is insanely good and they truly just love to share their gorgeous property.
Hope to make it back and will definitely stay here again when I do!!
