We have confirmed reservations from the National Park Service for this beautiful campground.
About the Cabin 2 Camp
For 2018 we will be in Cabin Camp 2. Cabin Camp 2 first hosted campers in 1937. For many years, Camp Mawavi, run by the Campfire Girls of America, operated out of this camp. The camp sleeps 149 visitors, and consists of approximately 132 acres. This camp manly contains 4 person cabins, with a few 2 and 6 person cabins mixed in here and there. The units are clustered in a circular arrangement and contain 8 cabins, a bath house, and a lodge. Each unit is in a grassy clearing that is surrounded by dense forest. The large ballfield and lake access in Camp 2 are among the best in the park. Cabin Camp 2 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
Four of the five cabin camps in Prince William Forest Park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each camp is composed of group of wood, stone, and brick structures constructed by the CCC and WPA workers of the Great Depression. The camps were built as summer camps that the government hoped would instill the poor children of Washington, DC with the ‘character and health-building’ benefits of the great outdoors. In World War II, the camps were used by the Office of Strategic Services as a spy training area.
We cordially invite men, and boys and youth with men, to join us at our Gathering the weekend of Friday through Sunday, September 14, 15, & 16, 2018.
