Missile Silo Adventure Camping, sleeping under the stars!

We love the outdoors, & what better way to experience life in the Smoky Hills of Kansas than primitive camping at a former Missile Base.

Here we are repurposing an abandoned Missile Base into an Adventure Resort.

Learn about the first rockets that brought us to the Space-Age.

You will be sleeping above a decommissioned Atlas F Missile Base with a great view of the stars ... Ad Astra!

Location

Wilson, Kansas, United States

The Wilson community promotes itself as the "Czech Capital of Kansas" due to the role of Czech immigrant settlers in its early history. It also has the largest Czech Egg in the World.

We are located in the Wind Belt of America, and are surrounded by a 250 MW windfarm.

Lake Wilson is a 9,000 acre Army Corps of Engineers Reservoir. It is listed as one of the largest and cleanest lakes in the State of Kansas.
Do to the consistent winds this Lake is a gem for sailing and kite-boarding enthusiast.

Next to the lake are Epic rated bike trails, a couple beaches, and over 8,000 acres of wilderness open for hiking and hunting.

Life is an Adventure! Ad Astra Per Aspera. "To the Stars through Difficulties" A little about me, I'm 40 years old, and have traveled to over 20 countries around the world. I have a degree in International Business, with an emphasis on Hospitality. One of my first adventures at around 10 years old, I went exploring through the Flint Hills with a friend and found a former underground Missile Base just a couple miles from my home. Now close to 25 years later I own an Atlas F Missile Silo which we plan on converting into an Adventure Resort and nonprofit headquarters for the Ad Astra S.T.E.A.M. Institute. Over the years I have worked as a Manager and Night Auditor at the Shelter City Youth Hostel in Amsterdam, The Keeter Center Lodge in the Ozarks near Table Rock Lake, and The Timberline Ski Lodge on Mt. Hood Oregon. I do custom woodworking with my father who lives next door, as a day job. I enjoy building Fireplaces, Kitchens, ManCaves, and more. One of my favorite jobs to date was to build a custom Library for the Survival Condo Project, an Atlas F Missile Silo converted into a 15-floor, 55,000 sq. ft. underground condomium complex. I love obstacle course racing, and have competed in NBC's American Ninja Warrior. Fun fact: I met my amazing wife Leigh Ann underground at Subterra Castle (an Atlas E Missile Base), and we were married two years later in the Sacred Stone Circle on the property.

During your stay
I will be camping and working on the site throughout the day and night, and will be available to assist with setting up tents, building the fire, and providing a tour of the decommissioned Air Force Base.

After the tour we will show you to your choice of campsites located at the Missile Base property.

The Missile Base is currently under construction, after you sign liability waivers we will give you a tour of the former Launch Control Center where the Missileers lived underground during the Cold War.

Here you will learn about the Ad Astra S.T.E.A.M. Institute and our plans on transforming this abandoned military structure into an amazing Space-Age home.
