Starr Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Starr Campground is located just off of US Highway 395 making it very easy to get to.  The campground has an upper level that is closer to the highway, yet still set back amongst beautiful pondersa pines.  The lower part of the campground is set further back in the pine trees allowing for a more secluded experience.  This beautiful campground sets in a prime spot for hunters, hikers and wildlife enthusiats.  Within a 7 mile drive of the campground are numerous trailheads leading into the beautiful Strawberry Mountain Wilderness.  Just a few more miles down the road is beautiful Logan Valley, this area is amazing during the spring, summer and fall months affording wildflower, wildlife and scenery viewing. 

Starr Campground is a great base camp spot for those wanting to explore the Murderers Creek area and have the opportunity to see the wildhorses that reside there.
