The Lockhouse is in a secluded and beautiful setting, with tall trees all around and amazing historical character. Visitors must be ready to rough it - there is no electricity, heat, or water. You must bring all your own bedding, including pillows, blankets, mattress pad, and linens. There are no cooking pots, only long forks for roasting hotdogs over the fire. However, the grill over the fire ring is very functional and can be raised and lowered, and plenty of firewood is supplied, so cooking outdoors is relatively easy. Trains pass nearby and will awaken visitors at night. You must clean the Lockhouse before you leave. Photos at https://www.flickr.com/photos/66073344@N04/sets/72157645579159192/
Any inconveniences are more than overcome by the ambience of Lockhouse 28.

The C&O Canal has great walking and biking trails with several lockhouses along the way. Right beside the river. Beware when it rains the path can get very muddy!
