Catoctin Mountain Park Adirondack Shelters

Catoctin Mountain Park

The Adirondack Shelters are three sided wood shelters offered as an alternative to backpacking. Permits are issued without charge at the visitor center on a first-come, first-served basis. Permits may not be reserved in advance. There are two shelters which accommodate a maximum of 5 people each. Each shelter has a fire circle and access to a pit toilet. Drinking water must be carried in and trash carried out. Tents are not permitted except inside the shelter, allowing minimal impact on the area. These 1 1/2 to 3 mile hike in (distance depends on parking location) shelters are open all year.

Take Route 77 West, the exit sign is marked Catoctin Mountain Park. Travel approximately 3 miles west on 77 and turn right onto Park Central Road. The Visitor Center is on the right.
