We love enjoying stories and s'mores under the stars around a campfire at Broadstone! We have two campfire areas. One is located next to the Watauga River on the Lower Field. The other is located at the patio behind the Lodge. To be cautious, we only allow fires that are built and tended by Broadstone staff. Visit our reservations page to book a campfire for your group!
