Overview

Overview

Camp Misty Mount brings together small groups, families and individuals for rustic mountain cabin camping in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland. The historic stone and wood cabins were built in 1936 as part of a federal Great Depression-era jobs plan to build recreational camps.

Natural Features:

Camp Misty Mount is surrounded by hardwood forests on the slopes of Catoctin Mountain Park. The region is part of the Blue Ridge Province and offers scenic mountain views and clear streams.

Recreation:

Kids love the camp's swimming pool, open from late May through early September.

The trailhead for Wolf Rock is a short walk from the camp, pleasing both hikers and rock climbers. Wolf Rock is the only part of the park that allows both rock climbing and rappelling.

Facilities:

Cabins are rustic, providing basic metal cots, mattresses, and overhead lighting. Cabin capacities range from four to eight people. No electric outlets are available; however, hot showers, flush toilets and drinking water are located inside each campsite loop.

Cooking can be done outside on the grill attached to the campfire ring. A dining hall with commercial kitchen equipment is available for rent for indoor cooking.
Camp Misty Mount can be reserved in its entirety (30 cabins). If you wish to reserve 10 or more cabins, you must call the Recreation.gov call center at (877)444-6777.

Nearby Attractions:

Interconnected hiking trails can be reached from Misty Mount on the Wolf Rock Trail, or by driving within a mile of the camp.

Try the Hog Rock Vista Trail or the Thurmont Vista Trail for phenomenal views of the valleys below.
