Hunting Creek Lake at adjacent Cunningham Falls State Park

Due to the lay of the land, there are no natural lakes or ponds at Catoctin Mountain Park. Some areas adjacent to streams support small intermittent ponds, but these have a tendency to disappear during drought conditions. Adjacent to the park is Hunting Creek Lake. Managed by Cunningham Falls State Park, the 75 acre man-made lake is a popular place for swimming, boating, and fishing.
