Rapidan Camp Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Visit President Hoover’s retreat and enjoy a picturesque stretch of the Appalachian Trail along Hazeltop Mountain. Toward the back of the parking lot, on the south side, you should be able to spot a spur trail that takes you, in very short order, to the Appalachian Trail (AT).
Though only a few houses remain, the camp is still a striking historical site, with its rustic buildings appearing out of the foliage. A number of signs detail the history of this place, where President Herbert Hoover relaxed from the stress of governing the country during the Great Depression. The White House physician of the day called the camp “one of the most relaxing places that I have ever known.”"
