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