You can't visit the Presidential retreat of Camp David here, but you can take advantage of the park's 25 miles of scenic hiking trails plus many outdoor activities including camping, fishing and picnicking.

I spent Labor Day weekend at Owens Creek. The camp was pretty full all weekend and even though the sites are close together, it was relatively quiet and peaceful. Firewood is available for $5 a bucket, enough for 2-3 fires. Facilities were clean. Park Rangers...More
Came here after a recommendation from a local - he was not wrong. After a short stop in the visitor center to plan which of the dozens of trails I might check out - hardwood forest, beautiful overlook, waterfall, or perhaps the place of a...More
Still one of the best hikes in Catoctin Mountain Park, and I'll go so far as to say in the state of Maryland. Yes, it's the most challenging and strenuous hike in the park, but the view is worth everything. Start at the Visitor Center...More
Located in the mountain ranges of ‘Catoctin National Park’, this Mountain Park is about an hour and a half drive from Washington DC. This park houses the famous retreat of American Presidents ‘Camp David’ in its midst. You go along the Park Central trail and...More
The mountain offers several trails of varying difficulty, mostly moderate-to-hard I would say, based on some steep hills and at times rocky, uneven paths. Trails are very well maintained, and marked. We did a 7.6-mile loop, starting at Hog Rock parking, and including Cunningham Falls,...More
We stopped here up while driving north on Route 15, just to see what it was all about. The ranger was so helpful in explaining the various trails and pointing out some easy walks for us since we were not dressed appropriately for heavy duty...More
We stumbled upon Catoctin Mountain Park by accident late in the afternoon after leaving Antietam Battlefield. We viewed the exhibits and if we would have had more time we would have taken a hike on one of their trails. The rangers and volunteers were all...More
I went with my 13 year old son for a hiking. The trails were in perfect condition. We had a very good exercise after 45 minutes walking uphill. The other visiting hikers were very polite. We had a wonderful morning.
I spent two days here in July of 2018. Driving through the parks paved roads you get to see a few rocky creeks and lots of trees. The trees are so grown up and dense that even on the mountain tops you can't see out...More
This whole region is such a beautiful place, you have the Falls, the Lake, camping areas. You can relax by a fire, you can do some light boating and fishing, some swimming at the lake. A little bit for everyone.

The Catoctin National Park is pet friendly (on leash). They have some limited rustic "tent only" camping. No electric or water. However, nearby across the road (MD route 77) is Cunningham Falls State Park which has camping that would suit your needs. There is also a lake for swimming. The closest laundromat would be in the near by town of Thurmont. 10 minutes away.
