Accommodations at the Stokes Star Party


l bunks

Above: Lenape Lodge is within walking distance of the main observing field and offers numerous bunks. The building is fully insulated, heated and offers flush-toilets.


One of the many features of the Stokes Star Party that make it appealing to a wide range of amateur astronomers are the on-site accomodations. Located adjacent to the observing field is Lenape Lodge with nearly 80 bunkbeds and two bathrooms. This is plenty of space for even our largest gatherings for everyone to spread out and claim their own sleeping space. Even on the coldest nights, the lodge is toasty and warm making for a very relaxing end to the observing night. Note: You will want to bring pillows and either sheets/blankets or sleeping bags, as the bunk beds are spartan.


Or, you may as other observers prefer, camp-out in your tow-behind camper or Motor Home or even put up your tent right on the observing field next to your equipment. We ask that those with large(r) rigs, such as Motor Homes, please park off to the side of the observing field to allow ample room for all telescopes to be set up on the field.


Separate men's and women's bathhouses are available to everyone, also located immediately adjacent to the observing field. Please bring your own soap, shampoo and towels.


Pricing is as follows:

Type of Accomodations
On-Field (tent or camper)
Lenape Lodge (Bunkhouse)

*Note: The Stokes Star Party is designed as a "No-Frills" type event, so the pricing above does not include meal service or afternoon talks/presentations. Please see the Area Dining page for places to eat if you do not plan on bringing your own meals and the Day Activities page for ideas on how to keep occupied prior to sunset.
