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.
