The Catoctin Mountain Park Visitor Center will close on Wednesdays beginning December 3, 2014 to increase efficiency and reduce rising energy costs. The closures will continue through March 25, 2015 when the Visitor Center will return to a seven day operation. As Wednesdays are the lowest visitation day, impact to visitors will be negligible.

The Resource Education Staff will continue to explore alternative methods of providing information through the use of technology when the Visitor Center is closed. Podcasts, maps and news releases will be posted on the park website at Information obtainable on the park website, social media, wayside exhibits on interpretive trails and from bulletin boards at the Visitor Center will offer functional alternatives for visitors impacted by the Visitor Center closure.
