Gambrill State Park

Middletown Overlook at Gambrill State Park


The High Knob area of Gambrill State Park is known for its breathtaking views of the Frederick and Middletown Valleys.

The park has three native-stone overlooks, which were all built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in the 1930s.

The Frederick Overlook is popular for weddings due to its massive stone staircase and platform.

Impressive views of the western sky can be seen from the Middletown Overlook, also within High Knob.

Gambrill's North Frederick Overlook offers expansive views to the east of Catoctin Mountain and is situated directly along Gambrill Park Road north of the High Knob entrance.

All overlooks close at sunset.
