The stars are one of my favorite things about Maverick Ranch RV Park. After dark there is an “all lights out” rule starting at 9pm. And when the lights go out, the stars are amazing. Some nights you can see the milky way and even shooting stars. It is a wonderful experience to sit back, relax and star gaze into the night.
