Trip Advisor Nice place to go hiking

I went in the fall before the leaves changed color, and when the kids were in school. It was relatively deserted.

Trip Advisor Very Scenic and Natural Setting
Apr 15, 2014 by: pjf41 from Thurmont, Maryland
We recently moved to this area and we are very happy to have this park so near. It is a fine place for families to come to enjoy mountain scenery and outdoor activities. Hiking, swimming, picnicking facilities are very attractive. This Maryland State Park is adjacent to the Catoctin Mountain National Park. Hikers, campers and families who love outdoor activities should be pleased with the opportunities provided here and could easily spend a day or two exploring the scenery and enjoying the family friendly facilities.

Trip Advisor Great adventure

There is lots to do in Cunningham Falls State Park. It's a beautiful location offering a plethora of hiking trails, nature centers, a lake to swim in, water falls to visit, playgrounds and camping to name a few. Located in a what feels like a remote location yet close to civilization where you have quick access to Thurmont restaurants and a few local shops and grocery stores as well as a short distance to Gettysburg Outlets and historical sights. We live in Thurmont and utilize the park often and throughout the year for fishing, hiking and swimming. There is a donation/fee for entering the lakeside of the park to utilize the swimming area and access the waterfall trails as well as a donation/fee for accessing the tire park.

Trip Advisor Please open the potties!

The only reason we aren't rating this a 5 is because it is so early in the season the potties are closed. Other than that, it is a beautiful place to bring the whole family including the doggie. The lake and Falls are beautiful!

Trip Advisor Winter Wonderland Close to Washington, DC

For those who like to hike in snow-covered woods, this is a lovely nature preserve in Winter. It's only an hour or so from Washington, DC. The frozen falls are particularly beautiful.
