Love Grateful Hammock!

I love this place! The entire property is protected by huge old oak trees, with a trail of camp sites winding through them. 

If you aren’t out hiking in the forest from one of many nearby trailheads, you may be relaxing in one of the buildings at the campground. There is a community kitchen that offers campers a stove, oven, refrigerator, coffee pot, and more. My favorite is the main building with a stage for the band to play, lots of soft, upholstered chairs, and an amazing fire pit. If you’re lucky, Dan & Donna will come hang out with you around the fire. 

Almost every surface on the property is covered with miscellaneous “hippy” paraphernalia and decor from the 60s and 70s. 

There are 2 bathrooms and a shower available to campers, and good music is piped through speakers from one end of the campground to the other.

Love Starkey Park!

Starkey Park campground is clean, rustic, and has lots of firewood for campers. There are many hiking, bike trails, and 2 playgrounds within mere steps of your tent or cabin. 

I’ve camped here with my 4/5 year old boys and our Cub Scout pack. 

The bathrooms are clean and easily accessible. There are also 3 primitive campsites available out on the trails.
