The vibe at Morningstar
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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.
