What a beautiful and peaceful spot! It’s a good distance away from the main highway so you can’t hear any traffic. The horses roaming the property came to visit me in the evening. They also sell farm eggs which I was excited to get.

Quiet and peaceful
If you are like me and love quiet peaceful privacy this is the place. Very nice and attentive hosts. Road a little bumpy but my truck and trailer made it just fine. Fell asleep to birds and woke up to birds. There are some benches and a picnic table, outhouse, and 2 120 outlets and something that I did not recognize (a 50 amp plug maybe).

Book this one, you will love it!
Amazing! Host greeted us and made us feel welcome. They know the area very well and can make recommendations, but you don't need to leave the property. Great for a romantic weekend or to get kids nature access in a safe place. Tons of foliage and bird watching with fishing right there. Horses came up to us the first evening and when we were leaving. It's like they came to say hi and bye. All the horses were friendly and liked to be petted. We were there for a full moon, so the sky was outstanding. I highly recommend this place b/c the owners have done a great job making a camp experience, but with nice amenities like a port o potty. You can walk and walk and walk and keep seeing new things. Simply one of the best Hipcamp experiences we have had. Great for campers of all ages and intensity level.

Awesome tent camping!
Such an awesome stay, Samantha was an excellent host and made sure we had everything we needed. Grounds were clean and neat. Cleanest outhouse I’ve ever seen. Kids had a blast, the horses came up to us and we’re super friendly. Had a cool little place the kids could play on tire hills, and farm playground, and of course fishing in the bass tank! We will definitely be back. Thank you Samantha!! Had pretty decent cell service on AT&T and Verizon (both iPhones) was able to stream music and FaceTime.

State parks can be hit or miss in terms of a quiet, peaceful relaxing day or night so we tend to avoid them more and more due to loud, obnoxious campers. Big Stars delivered as promised! Quiet, private and great stars! We'll be back!

Great stay!
We had a great time. So many lovely animals and it is a very open space with great views. The host were kind and friendly. Electricity is also provided via a regular outlet and an RV connection. The porta potty was clean and stocked. The water provided was more than enough. All around great experience.

What an cool little hidden gem. Had the whole pond to ourselves. Caught some good looking bass. The sunrises and sunsets at camp are amazaing but the skies at night are simply astonishing. Cant wait to go back.

Just wonderful!!
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!

Beautiful, peaceful place
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.

A quiet and peaceful camping environment, surrounded by Mesquite trees. Intermittent visits by curious livestock added a nice touch. Jim and Samantha are gracious hosts.

Perfect stop on a cross Texas trek
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.

Very peaceful! Friendly hosts. Great communication. Google maps leads you right to it when you have the address. Host will meet you and drive you to your spot. We enjoyed the dark skies and stars for miles!

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!

Private, peaceful, lots of wildlife
Samantha met us at the gate and led us to the campsite. Lots of flat space to pitch a tent, right on a sweet little pond, with scattered small trees. We heard coyotes, an owl, quail, ducks, and other birds. The campsite was completely private and peaceful.

Samantha took our last minute reservation for the same evening and had our tent and ready when we arrived. The site was clean and well kept up. My wife and I had some beautiful views of the night sky and saw multiple shooting stars. Would love to stay again.

I had an amazing stay at the Catfish Tank. The view of the night sky was possibly the best view I’ve ever had. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Milky Way with such clarity. The horses and cattle would frequently visit the watering hole throughout the day. They had a miniature horse named Tinkerbell that was so cute. Besides the view of the night sky, the 2nd highlight of my stay was a basset hound that came and hung out with me all day. I wandered around and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and he just followed right along with me. I suppose for some people that wouldn’t be a highlight, but I love dogs, and this dog was just the friendliest, most laid back dog. I really enjoyed my stay. Would definitely recommend.

Very serene
Beautiful campsite, great little fishing pond. Got to see a group of cows coming over for a drink one evening. Extremely friendly but polite dog hung out with us all day. Road was a bit rough coming in but only because we visited after it rained. We loved our stay and would recommend this camp!

Woke up next to horses!
My partner and I stayed at Big Dipper Campsite when we were only passing through the area, so we didn't get a chance to experience all of its benefits. Samantha and Jim were pleasant and met us at the gate even though we showed up late. They have picnic tables, swings, and games that would make this a great spot for a larger group. We enjoyed a game of cornhole before we left in the morning. The best part was waking up to find severals cows and horses wandering around the area. Several of them got close to check us out, and one braver horse came up to inspect our gear as we were packing up.

Wonderful stay for kids
An incredibly gracious host, Samantha and her husband were very kind and let us visit the fall fair on their property for free. The kids loved fishing in the tank, collecting frogs and playing with all the animals. Five stars all around for this host and property.
