two toilet rooms, two bath sinks and a separate shower room.This is
also where you get your morning cup of java.

early 1900's people set out on the roadways of rural
America just to enjoy the ride and to visit different
places of interest along the way. Tourist Camps,
hosted by friendly folks, popped up on private
properties all along the back roads in between
towns as an inexpensive alternative to hotel stays.
Beds, sheets, towels, showers and toilets were offered
to the Tourist Camp guests and many often enjoyed
an evening by a campfire sharing stories of where
they had traveled and what they had found
interesting on their way. The Tourist Camp was
not only a place to lay your head at night but an
opportunity to meet fellow travelers you might not
have the chance to know just in passing in the halls
of a downtown hotel.
out under the stars is modeled after those Tourist
Camps from days gone by. Since opening in 2009 we
have enjoyed the company of adventurers from all
across the U.S. as well as Germany, Ireland, France,
England and Australia!
