My wife and I stayed at Owens Creek campground in a small pop-up (no hookups) for a Sunday to Saturday camp. The site was wooded, near the creek and peaceful. The facilities were clean when we arrived late Sunday but no one cleaned the bathrooms for the first 2 days we were there. The good news was that there were only a few of us in the park. Kudos to the families of campers who arrived on our last night (a Friday). The park was as quiet that night as any. We visited throughout the park. Easy hikes and beautiful scenery. Wood is available for campfires. Thurmont or Smithburg are nearby for groceries. It you have a Verizon contract then you are in luck as it gives you great connection in most areas of the park. We even watched a US World Cup match on our phone. While the park is full of things to do, you have the added bonus of being about equidistant to both Antietam and Gettysburg, about a half hour drive away in opposite directions. We definitely enjoyed the trip and have already booked for June of 2015. There is Harper's Ferry, more hiking and a couple of vineyards left to be explored.
