Deerlick Astronomy Village

Deerlick Astronomy Village – located in Sharon Georgia, west of Augusta – is a members-only, 96-acre plot of land. According to its website, it’s located in one of the darkest regions of Georgia. Deerlick Village has cleared a lot of land, so the horizons are wide open. The easiest way to join the Deerlick Astronomy Village community is to purchase an annual “field membership.” This will give you access to the huge common field with electrical hookups, as well as common facilities such as a bathhouse with hot showers, a picnic pavilion with a BBQ, and a warm-up shed that is heated, air-conditioned and has a microwave, small refrigerator and DSL internet that covers the field. Deerlick also has nature trails to walk on, and plenty of green space. Camp on the field, or set up a tent among the trees.
