Take a Camping Staycation at Constellation Park

By April 22, 2019 April 24th, 2019 No Comments

One of the most unique features of Light Farm’s Constellation Park is the campgrounds.

What other community has a spot to take a quick getaway, without ever having to step foot in the car? Not only can camping be a fun escape for the whole family, but since you’re just around the corner from home, there’s no need to panic if you forget something essential! Take these tips and get ready to enjoy a fantastic staycation.

Keep your meals simple

Pinterest is full of dazzling outdoor cooking ideas, but if you’re just looking to relax, keep it simple! Roast some hot dogs or sausages, cook some veggies in foil packets with a little olive oil and seasonings, or just grill some burgers. Or just order takeout from The Farm Stand (we’ll never tell!). There are so many possibilities for meals that can come together quickly even when you’re away from home.

Bring some games

Board games and card games are just more fun outside. Pack some along with you when you head out for your camping trip, and you’ll have great options for after dinner fun or to occupy the kids when they’re too tired out from running around outdoors all day!

Don’t forget to pack your swimsuit!

Since the campground is right on our beautiful 11 acre lake, a swimsuit is an absolute must for your staycation. And don’t forget that your pup can join in the lake-going fun at the specially made dog launch!

Another great way to enjoy the water is by borrowing a kayak located in the boat house near the Constellation Park beach. They’re free to homeowners, using your activated access card, and available every day from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend from 10 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Reserve your site today

If you’re looking to set up camp at one of the Constellation Park sites which includes a grill and picnic table, you can make your reservation through the HOA’s website for only $20 per night. The general campsites do not require a reservation and are available on a first come, first served basis. Either way, you can look forward to a fun and relaxing getaway, right here at Light Farms!
