Setup a tent, hang a hammock or stay in one of our primitive structures. Blackthorn-USA is an Outdoor Adventure School in Randolph, KS. teaching Primitive Skills, Bushcraft, Homesteading and more. Our campsites range from moderately secluded, semi groomed areas to completely wild and untraveled. Off road vehicle parks, ziplines, kayak rentals and outstanding hunting and fishing are just a short drive away.
Our forests of cedar, oak, walnut, osage orange, cottonwood and more, along with our close proximity to water, provide excellent habitat for whitetail deer, raccoon, bobcat, fox, beaver, muskrat and many others. Many birds make their home here as well. It’s not uncommon to see turkey, hawks and eagles during the day or hear various owls at night.
The Flint Hills provides us with an abundance of flint and other unique rocks from glacial deposits. The diversity of plants, trees, wildlife and other natural resources make this an ideal place to learn, grow and relax under the stars.

The vibe at Blackthorn Basecamp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a diamond in the rough..Dave and Joy were so gracious and shared all their future plans with us. We arrived more than two hours later than we had planned and not only was Dave accommodating, he actually waited for us to show us where to camp. The sites are filled with all kinds of cool structures, including a Gothic building that is big enough for a bed, refrigerator and an air conditioner..what a cool concept. There is a trampoline, great climbing trees, a tire swing and other swings...they had the cleanest porta potty I have ever seen. He helped us open our trailer and brought some grease in the morning to lubricate the slides of the bed...so very thoughtful...these people are the epitome of what Hipcamp represents...I will definitely return here the next time I am in kansas.
