About Poplar Grove Youth Group Campground
Poplar Grove offers youth groups and organizations enjoyable year-round primitive tent camping. Located just five miles from the Catoctin Mountain Park portion of the Appalachian Trail in the rolling hills of Thurmont, Maryland, Poplar Grove allows youth groups to experience traditional wilderness camping. Natural Features: Poplar Grove offers flat tent areas to accommodate group activities. The campground is surrounded by a rolling landscape, perfect for light hikes. Whether blanketed in snow in winter months or blooming with wildflowers in the spring, Poplar Grove offers beautiful scenery all year. Since the site is located in a remote area, it is accessed by a gravel road during summer months, and is a hike-in only facility during winter months. Recreation: As a primitive camping area, Poplar Grove encourages kids to use healthy doses of imagination while surrounded by the natural landscape. Nature hikes and campfire circles are popular activities. Nearby Catoctin Mountain Park boasts 25 miles of trails for additional hiking opportunities. Facilities: Poplar Grove allows youth to connect with nature by offering limited comforts of home. Pit toilets and drinking water are provided. Three expansive sites can accommodate up to 25 visitors each, and multiple sites may be reserved for larger groups. Nearby Attractions: The Catoctin Mountain Park Visitor Center is located four miles away and offers interpretive programs. Just three miles away, visitors can enjoy fishing and canoeing at Cunningham Falls State Park. Cunningham Falls charges a daily entrance fee. ACTIVITIES Hiking Picnicking: Picnic Tables
