The C&O Canal does not sell food and drink items. At Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center, food concessions are available on a seasonal basis. Please look at our Recreation Guide to the Towpath to identify nearby communities for purchasing food while visiting the Park. Another great resource for learning more about what surrounding towns to the Towpath have to offer is the Canal Towns Partnership website.

Within the C&O Canal National Historical Park there are several options for spending the night.

If you enjoy camping, please visit our Campground page to learn more about the hiker-biker, drive-in and group camping possibilities.

If you would like to spend a night in one of our restored Lockhouses, please visit our official non-profit Partner, the C&O Canal Trust, to learn more about the Canal Quarters program.
