Perfect Lake & Falls

Located within a state park of the same name, Cunningham Falls is the largest cascading waterfall in Maryland. Known locally as McAfee Falls, Cunningham Falls has a height of 78 feet and was supposedly renamed after a photographer who frequently took pictures of the falls. Visitors will not only get to see the beautiful sight but will also come across other features such as an old homestead that can be seen above the falls and a natural rock formation called Dunkards Trough that was once used for baptisms.

The park showcases some of the Monocacy Valley's most beautiful panoramas and natural wonders, ranging from sparkling streams to views of the stunning Catoctin Mountain range. Many of its historic structures were developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s as part of Great Depression-era civic projects. Visitors can enjoy excellent opportunities for trout fishing, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing, and cross-country skiing throughout the year. The park is also home to the internationally-famed Camp David presidential retreat, which is not open to the public.
