The Middletown Overlook

Volunteers Needed

The Middletown Overlook is in Gambrill State Park's High Knob Scenic Area.

Everyone has something to offer the Friends group. The group consists of a wide range of people just like you. Whether you are a thinker or a doer, your help is wanted and needed. For those who love being outdoors, helping with events or special projects around the park is a great way to show support.
