We hope this info will inspire you to visit someday
Community is located in a rural neighborhood, on a desert bluff, surrounded
by mountains and
welcome adults (18 and older) from all walks of life. We are gay (and LGBT)
and honor both
male and female visitors. Starland is a clothing-optional camp--wear as much
or as little
as you desire! We
offer a rustic and simple, yet loved place to relax, and enjoy the splendors
Our facilities are available for group and
workshops or other events.
Starland Community is located in California's Mojave Desert,
and is 3500 ft. above sea level. We have
four distinct seasons at Starland
Community. Average temperatures (F): January: High-50; Low-30;
April: High-80; Low-50; July:
High-95+; Low-70; October: High-80; Low-50.
Winters are often quite windy and
cold, sometimes a trace of snow falls; Spring and Fall are the best
times to visit, with balmy
warm temperatures, few rain storms, and calm air. Summers can be hot,
windy, and dry. Generally, be
prepared for unusual conditions, since the weather is known to change
quickly, and in a short time.
Starland Community is a home for its residents, and a quiet
retreat for members and guests. As a
private not-for-profit organization, Starland Community's
residents and other volunteers serve as the
keepers of the land, and the
hosts to its members. Our funding comes from member dues, fees for
resident rents, and friendly, generous donations.
