Conservancy Venues for Camping, Cookouts and Family Events
Throughout the community, Willowsford Conservancy offers unique places to enjoy nature up close, to relax, and to rent for events like family picnics, birthday parties and campouts.
With seven large tent pads—each with its own grill, fire pit and picnic table—and ample space for games and activities, this wooded camp site is ideal for family camping, and daytime and overnight group events including picnics and birthday parties. The camp site is easily accessible from the nearby parking area, and is located on the 8-mile Grant Loop hiking trail for nature exploration, walking, trail running and mountain biking.
The rustic, three-season Cedar Pond Pavilion is nestled in a woodland overlooking scenic Cedar Pond, with easy access onto the Bull Run Overlook trail for wildlife watching, hiking and mountain biking. The beautiful structure was handcrafted in Tennessee from old cedar logs and raised here at Willowsford by the craftsmen who built it.
Stop by when hiking the trail, which passes by Cedar Pond, and enjoy a picnic on the spacious deck while watching nature.
The Pavilion features Conservancy programs and events and can be rented for family and group events by residents and resident-sponsored groups. To rent the Pavilion, please complete the Rental Application and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to read the Fire Prevention, Wildlife Considerations & Tick Prevention document (all found in the Document Center).
Please allow two business days for a response. Open April to mid-November.
Directions: From Grassland Grove Drive, at the Roundabout, turn onto Tulip Poplar Place. Turn left onto Cullen Run and follow Cullen Run until the end of the drive. Continue straight onto Pond Pavilion Lane and follow signs to the Cedar Pond parking lot and trailhead.

With a rustic pavilion, group-style fire pits, and space to accommodate tents of any size, Hidden Meadow is well-suited for larger group campouts including family gatherings, cookouts, small concerts, boy scouts and similar gatherings. The site will feature Conservancy programs and events and will be available for rent by residents and resident-sponsored groups.
Scheduled to open in late spring of 2018 in The Greens. The ancient sport of target archery combines skills of strength, precision and consistency, and builds confidence and focus while enjoying the outdoors. The Conservancy is excited to offer residents of all ages an outdoor archery range to practice this popular sport. Planned and designed with members of the Willowsford Archery Club, the range features a rustic pavilion covering the shooting zone, gathering area, picnic tables and storage shed; and 10 lanes with targets at distances from 30’ to 180’. The archery range will serve as a venue for the Willowsford Archery Club. Information on the Archery Club and how to join will be available soon.
