Cunningham Falls State Park is located in the picturesque Catoctin Mountains. It is divided into two separate but unique areas. The William Houck Area located three miles west of Thurmont on Route 77 has the lake area, falls and camping area. The Manor Area off Route 15 three miles south of Thurmont has the Scales and Tales Aviary, camping and the historic Catoctin Iron Furnace.

Outdoor activity is everywhere at Cunningham Falls State Park. Leisure opportunities like swimming, hiking, fishing and canoeing are available. For those who wish to get away for either a night or longer there are campsites and camper cabins available for rental from April through October.

Cunningham Falls State Park has campsites in both the William Houck Area and the Manor Area.

The William Houck Area Campground has 107 basic sites, 33 sites with electric hook-up. The William Houck Area campground is open April through October.

The Manor Area Campground has 23 basic sites and 8 sites with electric hook-up. The Manor Area Campground is open April through October. Primitive camping at the Manor Area Campground is available from November 1 through the second weekend of Deer Firearms season. This means that the bathhouse is closed for the winter, but a portable toilet is available.

Each site is approximately 23’ X 23’ made of stone dust and has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a bathhouse with hot showers and flush toilets centrally located in the middle of each camping look.

Reservations are recommended for both areas, since they often fill weeks or months in advance.

The William Houck Area, located three miles west of Thurmont on Route 77, has the lake area, falls and camping. The Manor Area three miles south of Thurmont off Route 15 has the Scales and Tales Aviary, camping and the historic Catoctin Iron Furnace.
