ALERT: 3-20-2020 - The safety and well-being of our staff and visitors to Maryland State Parks is our top priority and we take that responsibility very seriously. With that in mind, Maryland State Parks and trails will remain open at this time; however, staff will be taking extra safety precautions to mitigate the risk of contact with the COVID-19 virus. This includes the implementation of enhanced cleaning protocols at all of the parks’ restrooms. All other State Park buildings, campgrounds, playgrounds and shelters are closed to the public. All planned events and gatherings of groups larger than 10 people are cancelled through the end of April. We will continue to monitor the situation and adjust operations as events warrant. This website will be updated as new information becomes available.
Gambrill State Park is a beautiful mountain park, located on the ridge of the Catoctin Mountains in Frederick County. Its most popular feature is the 16 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The park is separated into two areas, the Rock Run area and the High Knob area. From the 1600-foot High Knob, three stone overlooks offer breathtaking views of the Frederick and Middletown Valleys then continue to the northern reaches of the Shenandoah Mountains. The High Knob area also offers wooded picnic areas, three picnic shelters, and a large stone lodge, called the Tea Room. The picnic shelters and the Tea Room are available for reservation. The Rock Run area offers a cozy family-style campground, a picnic area, and a small pond for fishing. Gambrill State Park offers an accessible comfort station and campground building.
