Appalachian Trail ... Hiking the Maryland Challenge ... Dahlgren Campsite

(Gallery Has One Picture)

This is a very special campsite in Maryland ... during the summer months it provides flushing toilets and hot showers. Is that not the most singular of opportunities on the trail for a long distance hiker. When I visited there, the campsite provided a portable toilet, because it was November. I do not, however, recall seeing any food hanging facilities, so you might need to use a tree, the same as in the back country.
