ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

The National Park Service strives to create a welcoming environment at all of its sites across the country. At Catoctin Mountain Park the majority of our visitor interaction is through our Visitor Center (VC), the Park hub for interpretation and education. The VC offers a number of services to visitors, such as bathrooms, an exhibit hall, and a gift shop. More importantly, the VC is staffed by Park Rangers with fantastic educational and interpretive skills. Our Visitor Services Volunteers (VSV’s) work side-by-side with these Rangers, providing visitors with a wide range of information to help improve the visitor’s Park experience.
