Star C Ranch Campground, B&B and Trails, Roseland, LA - New Passport America Participating Park

Star C Ranch, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Open year-round in a quiet, relaxed location 10 minutes from Amite City, LA and only 5 minutes off of I-55. A beautiful 500 acre woodland paradise that has been in the same family since 1828. Experience the best of South Louisiana with an exclusive B&B, shady Campground, Trails with family cemetery, Historic barn, Petting zoo, Playground, Indoor and Outdoor kitchens and Pool. Well behaved horses, (no stallions), and dogs of all breed and sizes are welcome.

Guests can participate in plenty of outdoor recreational activities at Star C Ranch, including 25 miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking, bicycling trails, and swimming. Guests may also bring their favorite horses to visit. Boarding is provided for an additional fee. 

The property also has a petting zoo and a children’s playground is provided for entertainment of your little buckaroo. Child care services can be arranged by the B&B staff. For your convenience, free wireless internet is accessible in the campground, barnyard, pool and B&B areas. Come check out Star C Ranch Campground, offering primitive, partial and full hookup sites for your stay. Beautiful oak, pecan and pine tree shaded campsites.

Relax, at the cabana that includes a full outdoor kitchen, grills, music and wide screen TV.

Night Life, the cabana is the perfect spot for everyone to get together and cook supper and follow up with dancing. Live music most third weekends of each month.

The trails are not your typical Louisiana swamplands. Star C Ranch's trails are mostly dirt, packed dirt, sand and mud. Their are short sections where gravel exists at creek crossing. Booting is preferred over shoes and most go bare foot. Mountain bicycles will be preferred over street versions. Hiking boots are recommended, but tennis shoes and heeled boots will do. We are located in Roseland, near Amite City, LA where rolling hills begin. A variety of trees and undergrowth await you as you travel through maintained trails, family cemetery with Confederate soldiers, secluded water holes, Willow Ponds and Natalbany Creek. No motorized trail riding and no hunting means you will see deer, raccoon, rabbits and more. The trails are almost completely shady all day during the spring, summer and fall seasons due to our unique canopy of tree and shrub combination. There are sections that are wide open with full sun and safe for a faster pace.

Your dogs may run off-leash on all of the trails away from the campground and barnyard area.

The rolling hills, shady trails, meandering creek, variety of plant and wild life make our trails the best in Louisiana. So bring your horse or use one of ours on a guided trail ride. Please see our web site for additional addons to your trail experience

Don't want to camp, Star C Ranch Bed and Breakfast has quaint guest rooms with vintage-inspired d├ęcor and antique furnishings. We offer a daily breakfast and several outdoor activities to our B&B guests.

Equi-Trek Trail Challenge, (Every third Saturday and Sunday)
St. Patricks Day Poker Run, (Nearest Saturday to March 17)
