Camp Misty Mount

Overview

Camp Misty Mount brings together small groups, families and individuals for rustic mountain cabin camping in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland. The historic stone and wood cabins were built in 1937 as part of a federal program during the Great Depression. The cabins provided outdoor recreational opporunties for nearby urban areas, and over 80 years later you can still enjoy the outdoor opportunities provided by Misty Mount!

Kids love the camp's swimming pool, open from late May through early September.
