Gathland State Park

Located about an hour drive from Washington DC in Western Maryland along the Frederick and Washington County lines, Gathland State Park was once home to Civil War journalist George Alfred Townsend who wrote under the pen name "Gath". Gathland State Park includes Crampton's Gap, the location of one of the first battles of the Maryland Campaign during the American Civil War. Featuring Civil War re-enactors, Gathland State Park also offers a unique collection of buildings and a large, stone monument dedicated to war correspondents. The Appalachian Trail transverses the park and passes by the monument base.
Gathland State Park is located 1 mile west of Burkittsville Maryland, off MD 17.
