What a Destination!

Bring the Whole

Party Here!

The Shooting Star RV Resort is a great location for family reunions, weddings, motorcycle rallies, car shows, bachelor and bachelorette parties…the list goes on and on! It is a perfect place to howl at the moon, watch shooting stars streak across the open sky, and make some great memories.

​​​​In the


The NBC Today Show pulled into the Shooting Star with Jenna & Barbara Bush driving our very own 1964 Cadillac convertible! Don’t forget to check out our press page to see all the great interviews with the Shooting Star.

The Shooting Star RV Resort, formerly the Shooting Star Drive-In, is open to all RVs and campers in addition to the Airstreams.

You are invited to vacation like a Hollywood star in one of our nine star-studded Airstreams with décor that will make you feel like you are on the movie set of films like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Viva Las Vegas, or Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Each Airstream is decorated to resemble the dressing trailer of a Hollywood Movie Star while they were shooting on location. Imagine staying in Marilyn Monroe's trailer while she was filming Some Like It Hot or John Wayne's trailer while he was shooting The Searchers or Elvis' trailer while he was filming Blue Hawaii.

If you prefer, you can park your own RV in one of the large pull-through sites with full hook-ups or choose from the many secluded sites surrounded by oak and sage brush if you would like more privacy. RV sites can also be used for those that simply want to pitch a tent.

With the Shooting Star RV Resort being right off of the famous Scenic Byway 12, it is your perfect location to stay for your entire vacation.
