We absolutely loved our stay at Big Star Farm. The RV site is right on the edge of a bass tank and there’s so many frogs and dragonflies. The area is super clean. There’s a few areas to sit around the fire ring, Jim brought us down a telescope (unfortunately it was too cloudy for us to use). They had water ready in case we needed it. The porta poty was clean and there’s a nice large tree for shade around the fire ring and bbq grill.

We signed up for the animal tour and even though it had rained the night before, Samantha and Jim did an impromptu tour and brought the animals to us!

Chip was the little sweet goat and there was a chicken baby and then Jim went and called the cows and they all came running in. We got to feed them by hand and it was so fun.

Highly recommend the stay. Samantha was wonderful with communication and even offered to make a reservation for us at Perini’s so we could try their burger.

Overall a wonderful experience and we will be back!

We had a very pleasant stay at Big Star Views. It was perfect. The place is beautiful, we were all alone, we had a restroom to ourselves and potable water. We had a super nice weather overnight cause there were some storms a few miles away and we got light showers and a beautiful breeze. Not bad for June camping in Texas. We were visited by cows and horses in the morning. If you like primitive camping this place is awesome.

This is a beautiful campsite! Very quiet and peaceful. We have a fairly large fifth wheel and the road is a little narrow and rough going in. It would be ideal for a pop up, a smaller RV, or tent campers. I much prefer this sort of site to the usual crowded RV parks.

Samantha and Jim where great hosts, met Jim at the entrance to the property and Jim showed us around. Campsite was nice and clean, well maintained. Our boys had a great time fishing. Both of our boys enjoyed the opportunity to pet the goats and feed the other farm animals.

We where fortunate to have a clear night no clouds and had a great view of the night sky for star gazing. After breakfast the horses came around to visit and get a drink of water, let us pet them before they went on their way.

Will definitely keep on the list to visit again.

Had RV trouble en route and didn’t arrive until after 9pm. Samantha’s husband was nice enough to meet us at the gate in the dark and escort us back to the campsite which we really appreciated after doing roadside RV repairs and an 8 hour road trip. Site was clean and well maintained and felt private. Our dogs are their fill of cow manure and the kids enjoyed running around the pond. Unfortunately we were there less than 12hrs because it was just a rest stop on our two day trek to NM, but despite being there so briefly we’d definitely come back and stay longer.

Awesome hidden place if you happen to by in central Texas traveling near Abilene. Very quiet except for the animals but that adds to the experience. Very limited to no signal so contact host before you get there just in case!
