Cabin Accommodations
Main camp accommodation is split between two villages we call Star and Fish (Starfish!) and several smaller unique housing spaces. In the villages, our rustic wooden cabins provide the traditional camp experience. Each cabin has screen doors and windows, bunk beds, electrical outlets, lighting, and lots of cubbie storage space. 

Fish Village is closest to the Lodge and consists of 7 cabins that accommodate 10 people each, one cabin accommodating 20 people (known as "The Longhouse"), and one building for up to 5. Fish village has two bathhouses with individual stall bathrooms and hot showers. 

Star Village is nestled in a wooded area a short walk from the lodge and consists of 4 cabins that accommodate 14 people each. Star village has its own bathhouse with individual stall bathrooms and hot showers.

Additional Housing Options
Main camp is also home to a number of buildings less rustic than cabins and more suitable for specific parties (e.g. group leaders, bridal parties, elderly guests), or for groups/guests looking for a reduced rustic experience. These buildings consist of some small-group living spaces and some individual rooms, all with "home style" bathrooms/showers rather than washhouses. These spaces include Sanctuary, The Lair/Cave, Healthy House, and Dwelling.

Tent Pitching/The Grove

The Grove 
The Grove is a secluded tent site in the woods off the path between Main Camp and Crescent. This site has two heavy-duty canvas "cabin tents" with rain fly and additional ground space for tent pitching. The area is complete with a fire pit, outdoor cooking area, and nearby drinking water. Sturdy bunk-bed cots may be rented or feel free to bring a sleeping mat of your own! 


Tent Pitching 
For the more adventurous groups and guests, you are welcome to pitch a tent for your accommodation. If you don’t own one you can always rent one from us - we have everything from two-person pup tents to 14-person home-away-from-home tents! As you can imagine, the pitching spots are almost unlimited. Access to a campfire circle for cooking and indoor bathroom facilities can be arranged for tent campers. (Per town ordinance, RVs are not allowed). 

Beaches & Islands

Starfish boasts over 1/2 mile of shoreline on beautiful Lake Monomonac and has direct access from several private beaches. 

The Waterfront (at Main Camp)
Our main waterfront offers boating activities such as kayaking and canoeing, as well as swimming and relaxing on the beach. This is the larger of the two beaches on Main Camp and has hosted many celebrations and ceremonies, as well as water relays, beach volleyball, sandcastle making and more.

Star Beach (at Main Camp)
Star Beach can be found a few steps from the Lodge and is an ideal place to relax by the lake or watch a stunning New Hampshire sunset. Yoga is a popular activity here, as is fishing and raft-building - an exciting teambuilder or group activity that you shouldn't miss!
   FACILITY 357 115 0041  FACILITY 361  
 
Crescent Beach (at Crescent Camp)
Crescent Beach, so named for its beautiful half-moon shape and gently curving waterfront, offers unlimited options for swimming, boating, fishing, sandcastle making, and fun in the sun. For those celebrating events at Crescent, the beach at sundown is one of our most popular locations. Kayaks, canoes, Corcls (circular kayaks - they're awesome!), and inflatables are all available for use.

Starfish Cove & the Islands 
Starfish has four small islands on the lake, just off the peninsula we call "Far Far Away." The islands can be accessed by boating from any of the camp's beaches or by a short swim from Crescent Beach. Thanks to the hard work of our friends and neighbors on the lake, the islands, (including everyone's favorite stop for some fruit-picking, "Blueberry Island"), are part of a protected area of the lake now known as Starfish Cove.

  FACILITY 345 FACILITY 354 FACILITY 347

Starfish has an array of recreational facilities including a blacktop for basketball, outdoor stone human-size checkers board, large playing field with a GaGa pit, sand volleyball court, and children’s playground, walking trails, along with numerous other natural spots for whatever games and activities your group enjoys.
