Carderock Campouts

Carderock hosts family campouts in nearby Maryland and Virginia parks, usually twice a year. 

Carderock families join together for an overnight campout along the Potomac River just 2 miles from our neighborhood, or at another nearby park.

Join us for a campfire, tenting, fishing, and a hike. Roast hot dogs and marshmallows with old and new friends.
