Owens Creek Campground
There is a maximum trailer length of 22 feet. There is space for 1 vehicle to park at the individual campsite and very limited overflow parking.
A picnic table and grill are provided at each site. There are two comfort stations with flush toilets and one comfort station has a hot shower. There are no hook-ups.
Our campground hosts reside at site #10, whenever the sign is out. These volunteers are in residence to assist you with any problems that may occur during your visit.
Catoctin Mountain Park has banned the use of firewood from outside the Park. This ban will protect the forest from destructive insects that could have a devastating effect on Park trees. Don't worry though, you can still make s'mores! Firewood is available for a fee of $5 per bucket.
