I went in the fall before the leaves changed color, and when the kids were in school. It was relatively deserted.

We recently moved to this area and we are very happy to have this park so near. It is a fine place for families to come to enjoy mountain scenery and outdoor activities. Hiking, swimming, picnicking facilities are very attractive. This Maryland State Park is adjacent to the Catoctin Mountain National Park. Hikers, campers and families who love outdoor activities...

There is lots to do in Cunningham Falls State Park. It's a beautiful location offering a plethora of hiking trails, nature centers, a lake to swim in, water falls to visit, playgrounds and camping to name a few. Located in a what feels like a remote location yet close to civilization where you have quick access to Thurmont restaurants and... More
The only reason we aren't rating this a 5 is because it is so early in the season the potties are closed. Other than that, it is a beautiful place to bring the whole family including the doggie. The lake and Falls are beautiful!

I have been going to this park since I was a kid. Recently re-visited for a day hike celebrating my mothers birthday. The hiking is breathtaking and I highly suggest taking the upper trails if you are able they actually aren't that steep and I have hiked much more strenuous trails. Its a great hike for kids as well which... More
I'm not sure if it's just a lack of rain lately or what but I've seen better waterfalls in a backyard swimming pool. My shower has more water pressure than was coming over the rocks. So, if you are going for the falls, don't. However, if you are going for a decent hike, then I would highly suggest it. I... More
