  • Two bags charcoal for the standup grills at the campsite
  • Grilling utensils

Directions for Gear Drop-Off: Use the drop-off to get your gear to the campsite (Marsden 01).  Park on the side of Macarthur Blvd at the entrance to the footbridge.  This drop-off is located on Macarthur Blvd just 50 yds west of the stoplight at the intersection of Brickyard Rd and Macarthur Blvd (Potomac-MD).  From the street you walk down a hill to the footbridge that crosses the C&O canal. After crossing the footbridge then turn left (east heading towards Washington DC) and walk about 50 yds. The trail to the Marsden Tract campsite is on your right.  Site 01 is the first campsite on this trail.


Overnight Parking:  Overnight parking is not allowed at the drop-off.  Please leave your car at the Anglers National Park Service Lot (approximate address for overnight parking is 10801 Macarthur Blvd, Potomac, MD 20854) and walk the 3/4 miles east along the C&O canal to the Marsden Tract Group campsites.  Best is to grab another parent to shuttle each other back and forth. 

Optional:  You will find some campers make two trips to the car and bring a few extra items.  Here are some examples of what you might see: hammocks, tailgate chairs and inflatable mattresses.
