Lone Star is an unincorporated community in Douglas County, in the U.S. state of Kansas. It is 7 miles (11 km) southwest of Lawrence. Lone Star was firmly established in 1897, after the first settlers had arrived in 1854.[2] The area had a post office established under "Bond" from 1875 until 1899 when the name was changed to Lone Star. The post office closed in 1953.[3]

Near Lone Star is Lone Star Lake which was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
