The Manor Camping Area has 31 sites total. There are only one-fifth the number of sites of the William Houck Area here, and many people regard the Manor Area as a second choice if they couldn’t get a place in William Houck. As a result, unless it’s high season and a weekend, you very well may have a good chunk of the camping area to yourself. Cunningham Falls State Park has returned once more to an almost pristine state. The Catoctin Iron Furnace, a stark reminder of the past, is situated very close to the Manor camping area and remains a relatively easy and popular hike from the end of the picnic area. Also nearby (running right through the camping area) is Little Hunting Creek, which provides put-and-take trout fishing.
