Love the outdoors, but can't go too far? Nestled in a rural area just 5 minutes from Baylor and 10 minutes from the Magnolia Silos, Magnolia Table, and downtown Waco is Black Willow Pond. Who says you can't have your tent and city too?

If you want to explore Waco, follow University Parks Drive to downtown and you can bike, explore Cameron Park, visit the zoo, browse food trucks, or even kayak on the Brazos. Drive a little further out and enjoy Waco Lake. 

At Black Willow Pond, you can park and relax, set up your RV, tent, or hammock for primitive camping in wide-open spaces. Depending on the weather and your preference, you can light a fire in the fire pit or view the beautiful field dotted in the spring with Texas wildflowers, black willows, and cottonwood trees. If you want a little more activity, you can kayak or catch and release fish! Happy to chill? Join the turtles and bullfrogs on the wild banks of the pond. You may hear the cows moo and the hum of passersby, but you can unplug for as long as you like. 

Watch the fiery sunset as you make dinner, and let the lightning bugs keep you company while making smores. If you're lucky, the willows will sing you to sleep while you count the falling stars.

Like Shel Silverstein's poem "Invitation" beckons, " If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a magic bean buyer, a pretender, come sit by [our] fire for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!
