I was wondering if anyone really could have a good time in Utah until I saw this thread.

I really hope this places makes a go of it. I hope to visit...someday.

Moosetags was there recently and they liked it: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...d-76935-2.html Start with post 124.

As for the vegetation, this is in the high desert. There are grasses and sagebrush, rabbit brush, cactus and other plants native to the area that do not look like blue grass and trying to grow such grasses is a waste of water.

Although there is a fair amount of traffic through the area in the shoulder seasons and summer, it is pretty isolated the rest of the year. I hope this works and I'm sure it is a work in progress. We hope to get down there soon, but it might not be this year.

Fly,

Utah has some spectacular scenery, great national parks and monuments and some very good state parks. If a "good time" means multiple wives, they've got that too. The culture is very conservative and alcohol is a bit difficult to obtain, but buy it in Colorado—we have lots. Years ago in small towns the people did not seem to like "outsiders" even if they relied on them for tourist money, but that has changed. It is a good place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there because one group controls everything.

Life has been too busy to post much this summer but our trip through Rt 66 ending with 3 nights at The Shooting star was great. The owner Mark is a very nice guy who gave us a tour of all the Airstreams which he's done an excellent job on.
Great proximity to Bryce and Capital Reef for day trips. Getting to see my 13 year old son sit behind the wheel of his own vintage Cadillac was priceless. We even saw at least 2 shooting stars in the sky while watching the movie. We liked it so much we're going back this weekend for 2 nights prior to heading to Pagosa Springs. I'll try to post a few pictures after trip.

I look forward to more pictures and comments. The idea for this AS museum of the "Star's" as well as the campground interests me. I have seen some mixed reviews, but several of you say you're going back, so that says something. More pictures, more reviews and I'll keep it on my list of potential stops for future trips.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at Shooting Star Drive-In a few weeks ago. We were greeted immediately on arrival by Mark Gudenas, owner of the resort, and escorted to our site. Mark was a gracious host who later set up a movie at the drive-in theater and opened up the (Airstream) snack bar for us, even though we were the only ones in the park. We watched the movie from the comfort of a Ford Fairlane convertible and had a total blast.

We enjoyed touring the Airstream "rooms", each tastefully decorated to resemble the on-location dressing room of a famous classic movie star. Overall, it is a unique, somewhat quirky destination and, IMHO, one that truly embraces the Airstream lifestyle. We can't wait to bring our grand daughter with us next year.

could be better

we stopped in.....paid our fee to camp and were led to a recently shredded field of the largest thorns one could imagine.. we were the only ones there....the airstreams for rent and the drive in theater were over in another field of grown up weeds......

the owner is a really nice guy....and i suppose if you rented one of the airstreams on site and settled in and then watched a movie at the drive in it could be ok.....but we bailed out and went to the nearby state park and had a much better stay....

your mileage may vary.....

Mixed reviews on this so far. Great ideas, maybe weak execution, located in a remote area where it may be hard to attract business. I hope it works.

We had our Airstream there this year. There are about 10-12 trailer sites and I believe its Airstream only. We loved it

We're going to be passing through there in April. Is everything up and running? Sounds like my kind kind of place.
