Star Party

The 2022 Hidden Hollow Astronomy Conference will be held Friday, September 23 – Sunday, September 25, 2022!

Long-time star party fans know the legend of Hidden Hollow as one of the friendliest and most comfortable conferences around. We’re nestled deep in the woods of Hidden Hollow resident camp in northeast Ohio near the town of Mansfield. Each year we provide some of the finest guest speakers available, and they join in the fun!

We provide cabins, bunkhouses, and showers for your comfort. We also have primitive/boondocking/dry camping sites for tent and RV camping and modern restrooms.

If it rains, it’s no problem. We have indoor facilities and all activities go on. There are warm areas where you can gather to converse, places to watch movies, play cards or just hang out. The observing field is well-drained and groomed with plenty of “space” to go around.

One of the most appealing parts about Hidden Hollow is the location itself. Even if you aren’t interested in staying up all night observing, you’ll fully appreciate the fine scenery of the camp itself. During the Fall season, Ohio offers some of the most spectacular foliage in the United States, and the pristine, quiet and peaceful surroundings of Hidden Hollow are an ideal place to relax and have an enjoyable weekend. There are plenty of trails to walk in the woods and nearby attractions, restaurants, hotels and shopping. Children and families are always welcome here!

Thanks to wide open spaces and peaceful seclusion, you’ll have a wonderful time at the Hidden Hollow Astronomy Conference. Our guests have voted us #1 as one of the most beautiful astronomical retreats in the country. During your weekend stay, you’ll be treated like family as you enjoy our workshops, contests, programs, fantastic prizes and observing. We welcome visitors of all ages, and you’ll find that no matter where you roam… There’s no place like our home in Hidden Hollow!
