Star Field Campground at the Whiterock Conservancy offers some of the best aspects of state parks with the seclusion that we've come to expect from Hipcamp listings. Star Field is situated on the southern edge of the sprawling conservancy. We slept across from fields of clover and roving butterflies. In fact there were thousands of butterflies across the oak savanna landscape. On cloudless night you'll find your in star gazing country.

The campsite itself could have fit four or five tents (in fact they just charge per tent, so groups are welcome). It featured a big oak tree, a spacious picnic table and a fire ring set off to the other side of the camp. Each site was unique and was spaced far apart from any neighbors. The camp also has showers and indoor toilets along with nearby port-a-potties for when nature calls.

We were new to the conservancy, but almost all of the other campers had mountain bikes in tow. If that's your forte you'll find days worth of biking trails available. There's also kayak and canoe rentals to experience Whiterock from a different perspective. There's also miles of hiking trails to explore Whiterock's mission of synergizing conservancy and environmentally friendly farming practices.

Great weekend and fun place to camp. Was a little disappointed to find out it was $5 cheaper to reserve a spot directly thru star field.

Our only recommendation would be to make the signage clearer. We got the campgrounds mixed up, and then the sites didn't seem to be in the order of the map (which did look very clear).

Everything else was great! We basically had the place to ourselves. It was super easy to pay for the wood and find trails in the area. The bathhouse had outlets, benches, and was very clean. The shower was hot and free; what more could you ask for? Our site was #4, which had some shade and was at the bottom of a hill. The sun sets on the other side of the hill so we just climbed up to the field and watched the sun set and the stars later. Definitely alot of animal activity in the area, the only sound you can hear at night.

We wish we could've stayed longer!
