Rockwood Manor Retreats & Events encompasses a 30-acre wooded park and historic 1920s country house nestled on the shores of the C&O Canal and Potomac River. The Manor House has stood for nearly a century and has hosted first ladies, international diplomats, and thousands of private events throughout its rich history.
For 40 years, Rockwood Manor was the National Girl Scout Camp, and over the last 30 years the property has transformed into a unique retreat destination with charming camp lodging and converted cabins that accommodate up to 85 guests overnight.
Although just six minutes from the Capital Beltway, Rockwood Manor is far removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Once you have arrived, the champion trees will embrace you and in no time at all, you are relaxing in a rocking chair on the Veranda or sipping a warm mug of hot chocolate by the fire pit.
Rockwood Manor is owned by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC). It is one of three Montgomery Parks Event Centers.
