Stella's Host Facility Map

The Best Places to Experience Nature at Night

Being reconstructed - all locations are in place, but the keyed icons and other improvements are coming.

With natural skies disappearing rapidly, there is a growing demand for places to experience nature at night. So, Stella has created a map to help people find nearby places to stay (cabins, campgrounds, and lodges) that light responsibly and support natural skies.

In addition to being on Stella's map, host facilities can post on our Facebook Group page, may be listed on ANSA's Facebook Page, have access to special literature for their guests, and advise on marketing their Natural Sky assets.  To learn how to join our Host Facility program and map, please click here.

To scroll the map, place the cursor on the map and hold down the mouse button while scrolling.  State Parks are listed but have no agreement with ANSA, and many have not yet fully implemented responsible lighting practices, though the policy is in place to do so, and Mount Magazine is applying for Dark-Sky Park Status.
