The 11+ acres was once part of a 100-acre plot of land that has been subdivided. It is home to birds, bullfrogs, turtles, and other wildlife, and every now and then cows graze lazily here when they aren't grazing on the larger properties. Black Willow Pond's namesake is from the black willow trees that encompass the pond and stand alongside the tall cottonwoods. We have built a home in the heart of the property, but there are many coves in the trees and primitive spots to enjoy the starry nights, a Waco, Texas sunset, and wild, open fields. Learn more about this land: 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.

I didn’t get the opportunity to stay here due to an emergency but the host was amazing. Extremely understanding and very communicative.

Peaceful & convenient stay
Black Willow Pond was very easy to access, right off Highway 6. Bing provided everything we could have imagined from a nice fire pit with chairs to a portable toilet! There is a beautiful house being built on the property, I'd just recommend confirming if construction workers will be on site during your stay.
