Morningstar Lake Resort Campground

This smaller reservoir features family campgrounds, 100 sites, piped water, vault toilets, group area, small store, paddle-boat rentals, pay phone, and private (fee charged) fishing access.

Take your family to the lake for the weekend! Big Reservoir/Morning Star campgrounds are privately operated and come with showers, restrooms, and plenty of space for trailers. The lake view is amazing and the water by the shore is shallow for the kids. Once the sun starts going down, be sure to have s’mores over the fire pit and set up on the picnic tables. Your family will remember this outing forever.
