Family Camping Trip

  • Thurmont, MD United States (map)

Nothing says summer like tents under the stars and roasting marshmallows over an open campfire. We would like to invite you and your families to join us for a weekend among winding trails, relaxing streams, and picturesque mountains. Register now to reserve your family's campsite!

Check-in is between 3:00 and 10:00 pm on Friday, check-out is at 1:00 pm on Sunday.  A suggested list of items to bring as well as other pertinent details will be provided closer to the date. One communal bathhouse including men and women’s restrooms and showers is available. Dishes are washed using a communal waterspout. Quiet time is maintained from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am. The rental of a campsite or cabin includes a day pass into the park where hiking and swimming are free.

TENT CAMPING: LIMITED SPACES STILL AVAILABLE. Each site is approximately 23’ X 23’ made of stone dust and has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a bathhouse with hot showers and flush toilets centrally located in the middle of each camping loop. Paying the registration fee reserves one campsite in the loop for up to six people. Two tents and two cars are permitted per tent campsite. Tents are necessary and not provided. Registered participants should pitch their own tent, but help is available if needed. Participants should also bring whatever supplies they need for a weekend of camping.

CABINS:  SOLD OUT! Each cabin site has a picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. All cooking must be done outside the cabin. The cabins have no air-conditioning. Campers may bring a fan. Campers must provide their own linens. Campers sleeping in cabins also use the bathhouse, shared by all the campers in the loop.
