We stayed in the Bear Branch Loop of the William Houch Camping Area. This is a lovely area if you're a beginner camper or just looking for the glamping experience. The sites are small and not very private but are well defined. It's very clear where to park, set up the tent etc. The park itself is very scenic with nice hiking trails and a lake to enjoy. I was there in the fall so didn't go out on the water but can imagine it would be popular during the warmer months.
This is a great place to stop in that it is close to Camp David (historically presidential location). Make sure to drive slowly, as the road to get there is very curvy and somewhat steep grade (if driving eastbound. Recommend using fog lights.
We liked camping here and plan to eventually return. Our experience was rainy, but it was fun regardless. Nice park with hike to the waterfalls, swimming in the lake and playground. Bathroom facilities were fine and clean enough, but not the best of state park facilities I've seen.
Great park! Well cared for and perfect for a family get away.
Cell service doesn’t work, electric hook ups only. This state park is beautiful and off the grid! We love hiking to the falls, swimming in the lake, visiting Misty Meadow farm and creamery, and relaxing! Camp store stocks supplies with limited hours. Bathrooms are clean, enough. Camp hosts are friendly. During peak season, there are nature programs going on.
We love going to Cunningham falls annually, however, it books up quickly during peak season! There’s a lake, boating, playgrounds, hike to the falls. So much scenery and nature. The electric “A loop” is paved so it’s great for bike riding. The bathhouse is just a short walk away. The sites are wooden but you can still see your neighbors.
Gorgeous area but not a lot around there
Went for a short weekend in early September. Very few people. Camp lot was small and mostly crushed stone ( not great for tents). Not much play area for kids around campsite except the road. O and big hairy spiders in shower. Camp staff can’t control the spiders but there were a bunch. The ranger was very nice and even personally told us of the thunderstorms approaching.
Cunningham Falls has a nice set of trails that range from easy to moderate. The park is kid and dog friendly. Campsites are a little small and signage could be better, but restrooms are clean and the Rangers are very helpful.
