Owens Creek Campground offers classic Americana style tent camping in the Catoctin National Park. In the spring there are wildflowers, in the summer there is hiking through the green rolling hills, and in the fall your site will be drenched in an explosion of color. Whatever season you go, the wine is a toast’n and those marshmellows are a roast’n. Celebrate it with the whole fan-damily!

Beautiful location - wonderful trails all over (near Camp David) secluded camp sites, on the small side, lots of trees.
Worth the trip!

Beautiful campground, quite wooded. Can be crowded when weather is good because so close to DC and B'more
