Each year, a growing number of people travel to Frederick County to revel in our parks and recreational amenities. Highlighted by the Catoctin Mountains and the Potomac River, our 90 national, state, county, and municipal park facilities offer a wide variety of recreational activities such as swimming, boating, camping, hiking, horseback riding, and nature programs in environments ranging from urban city parks to wilderness reserves. Wonderful outdoor experiences are to be enjoyed in every season.
Some parks may reach capacity early in the day. Face coverings are required for gatherings of 50 people or more at all shelters, as well as in bleachers and stadium seating within Frederick County parks. Face coverings are otherwise not required. Contact individual parks for specific restrictions.
