Montgomery Parks and Little Bennett Campground (located in Clarksburg) now have you covered…literally. They have added cabins that can accommodate groups of four to six people.
Each cabin includes running water, an in-cabin bathroom with shower, coffee maker, refrigerator, charcoal grill, heat & air conditioning, and TV for playing DVDs. That’s my kind of camping!
Tucked inside Little Bennett Regional Park, the campground is conveniently located off I-270 between Frederick, MD and Washington, D.C., and offers 91 campsites including tent sites, Yurts, Full Hook-Up RV sites and now cabins. The smaller cabins accommodate groups of four while the large cabin offers sleeping space up to six. Each cabin includes running water, an in-cabin bathroom with shower, coffee maker, refrigerator, charcoal grill, heat & air conditioning, and TV for playing DVDs.
“We wanted to make it easier for people to reconnect with nature. Cabins offer an option to those who want to get outdoors but might want a few comforts of home,” said Jacob Holland, campground manager. “We are excited to welcome those new to the camping experience and welcome back longtime campers who are excited by this option.”
There’s lots to do at Little Bennett Campground. On weekends from April to October, families partake in arts and crafts activities, take guided nature hikes, race pedal carts, make tie-dye t-shirts, do ceramics, enjoy the jumping pillow and more. On Friday and Saturday nights, relax while watching movies under the stars. Campers don’t have to leave the campground during their visit as hiking opportunities abound, with more than 25 miles of trails, with many of the trailheads for hikes in Little Bennett Regional Park starting in the campground. But, if campers want to explore beyond the campground, guests can go to Little Seneca Lake, where they rent kayaks, canoes, or paddle boards.
Group camping (up to 60) is also available. The yurts, cabins, RV sites, and group site book months in advance, so make your reservations early. Reservations can be made up to a year in advance.
Don’t own camping gear or never camped? Try the Camper Ready program. For a modest fee, the staff will set up a tent, and provide you with two camp chairs, a lantern, and a propane grill. All you have to bring are sleeping bags and food.
