    Catoctin Mountain Park is worth a visit. Rangers gave us some great tips for a hike or trails with a view. Enjoyed our visit.  more »

    Catoctin Mountain Park is a beautiful hidden gem in the mountains of Frederick County. Trails, campgrounds, fishing and great views are just a few things this National Park has to offer.  more »

    The park looks interesting, the rangers are very helpful (as always) and they recommended us a nice and short trail. Unfortunately, the weater ruined it and we could not enjoy the views.  more »

    Nice place. Nice people and volunteers in the information center. The several trails that they told us aboit are very easy and comfortable. The forest is so beautiful. Great place must come back for another trail.

    This is a very cool park with awesome rangers who really got my kids interested in the park's junior ranger program - they're veterans of the program from various other parks, but the rangers spoke on their level and knew exactly what points would pique their interest. We didn't get to see the whole park, but we took the trail to the still on a warm but rainy morning in January and enjoyed both the natural trail and the human elements relating to the Prohibition-era stills tucked away from prying eyes. We'll definitely visit again to explore what we didn't see the first time.

    Fantastic park with many miles of woodsy trails and several interesting vistas. The trails are very well marked. Chimney Rock and Wolf Rock were the highlights for me.

    It's overlaid with the state park which is confusing. The trails are well marked, mapped and assigned difficulty levels. The welcome center is nice although they could have more free literature. Also, the camp sites seem to be far from the trails although that might be subjective

    Nice park, nice hike, good thing to do if you have the inclination. Pretty kid and dog friendly too.
