Across from the Indian Burial Mound
Winter Camp Park is FREE for all Woods Residents to use. NO MEMBERSHIPS, NO FEES.
It is privately owned by some homeowners, and is not associated with The Woods Homeowners Association (WHOA) nor Potomac Valley Properties (PVP).
Donations are appreciated.
THE RESTOOM CAN BE USED! The center Family section of the restroom will be open from Dawn to Dusk until November when the water will be drained. Porta Potty is gone. YAY!!! The larger Men's and Women's rooms will only be open during large events.
Wednesday Social Hours will continue until November - so come now while there is still time! Bring your own drinks, and food to share if you want. Meet and socialize with your neighbors. They are every Wednesday at 5:00 pm Rain or Shine! It's always comfortable under the pavilion.
HORSESHOES and BADMINTON are now available at the park and can be played during the Wednesday Social Hours. Horseshoes are available all the time! Badminton upon request.
LOST and FOUND. If you lost something at or around the park (e.g. jewelry, computers, chairs, cooking items, etc.) just email us at email@example.com and we'll let you know if we've found it.
The Restroom is 99.9% complete and is operational!
The 2023 Labor Day Weekend Music Festival marked the opening of the new Restroom. Everything worked flawlessly and everyone gave high complements on the construction.
After 18 months, it is nearly complete – timed locks and final interior and exterior cosmetics will be completed soon. The restroom consists of 3 separate rooms: women, men, and family. The center family area has 1 toilet and sink with a baby changing table; women’s room has 2 toilets, and 2 sinks; and the men’s room has 1 toilet, 2 urinals, 2 sinks. All rooms are ADA compliant. The family room will be open during the day utilizing special electronic locks, and the others will be used during large park events. All will be closed over the winter (November thru March) when the water is drained. Stop by to see the final product, especially during WHOA’s Fall Festival on 23 September!
This project could only have been completed with the financial support of The Woods community, our Corporate Friends, and some WCP partners. The Winter Camp Park partners would like to THANK the Woods community for your continuing donations to the Restroom project.
We are still graciously accepting donations to pay off the building and for our normal yearly bills! Go to the Contribute page to see how.

Join the 2023 Friends of Winter Camp Park Program now!
Yes, we still have 2023 decals, and we are happy to have you join, or renew your participation in the Friends of Winter Camp Park program for 2023. The initial major projects have been funded by contributions from the twelve homeowner partners, including the purchase of the land, construction of two family-sized pavilions, and significant excavation and grading to mediate water flow.
Contributions by other homeowners helped purchase picnic tables and property maintenance and enhancement.
Continued support is needed from the community to accomplish other projects and to pay for annual recurring expenses of over $10,000 (insurance, taxes, accounting, electric, grass cutting, computer services and portable potty), and to keep this area FREE FOR ALL.
So, join the Friends of the Park program to support this goal.
This Park is being developed thru a series of projects. These projects will be started based on several factors: safety, usability, interest, and availability of resources.
Check out the Projects page to see what has already been completed.
Permanent Restroom construction is the current project being undertaken. See below for more info on this major project.
The creation and maintenance of this park can only be accomplished by the help of volunteers within the community.
Every year there are lots of needs for volunteers to help with the park including:
Removing dead trees
Set up pavilion for Social Hours
Help with social events
Please consider helping with any of these or other things you are interested in. Use the Contact page to forward how you'd like to help.
Corporate Friends of the Park
In response to requests from businesses serving The Woods to acknowledge the benefit they have received by working with Woods residents and indicating their interest in supporting the Park's further development we created the Corporate Friends of Winter Camp Park program for 2020.
Our 2023 Corporate campaign is constantly seeking new Corporate Friends to join the team for a yearly contribution of only $250 or more. A huge THANK YOU to those companies below who have contributed so far to show their support to our community.
Check out the Supporters page often to see all the Corporate Friends and to join the list! Mention this program to companies you work with and have them contact us or let us know and we'll reach out to them.
