Experience Your Best Self

A truly unique and beautiful setting where the stress of mainland life is left behind

Star Island is one of the nine Isles of Shoals located seven miles off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. Star is owned and operated by the nonprofit Star Island Corporation. For the last 100 years, Star Island has offered an all-inclusive summer camp experience for families and hosted a wide variety of themed conferences and personal retreats.

Whether you find yourself mesmerized by the sunset in a rocking chair on the porch, exploring Gosport Harbor in a kayak, or learning about our innovative environmental programs, Star Island is unforgettable.

People say that once you come to Star Island, “you will come back!”  It is a chant that many people hear for the first time on the boat to Star Island, and one that is hard to take seriously until you actually go to Star.

Star Island’s historic Oceanic House and adjacent buildings become the village home for thousands of visitors each summer. The nonprofit Star Island Corporation has owned and operated Star Island since 1916, providing affordable individual and family retreats.

When people talk about Star Island, they talk about it as both a “place to unplug” and a “place where something is always going on.”  As hard as it is to believe, both are completely true.
