Had a great time! Fran was super hospitable and friendly and the dogs were nothing short of a delight. Expect to rough it but very fun spot to stay in. Cool town, beautiful scenery, will definitely be coming back!

I loved my stay at the Star Dome. The view of the stars framed by the dome is definitely worth the trip in itself. The open space and desert expanses are sight to see. Fran was a tremendous host offering as much help/privacy as I wanted. She also has amazing stories to share. Fran has created an eclectic and interesting space that I found inspiring. Her three dogs are happy & friendly. Definitely hope to spend some time here again

The star dome was brilliant and the perfect balance of cozy and wild. I really enjoyed exploring Fran’s property and the nearby surroundings. The doggies were sweethearts and the spaces were magical. Fran was charmingly straightforward, open, and generous. I’d come back for sure!

Fran was an absolute delight! We had the whole site to ourselves and loved exploring the area. There are so many amazing things happening around this campsite and we can't wait to go back. The Pink Store the next morning was an added treat.

The best seat in the house is on top of the bus. The Star Dome.
