A Look Inside Camp David, the Presidential Retreat in Maryland

Camp David, located in the Catoctin Mountain Park in Maryland, serves as the presidential country retreat. The initial construction of the complex was undertaken by the Works Progress Administration in 1935. It was later designated as the presidential retreat by Franklin D. Roosevelt, who initially named the property “Shangri-La.” However, during the Eisenhower administration, it was renamed Camp David after his grandson.

Over the years, Camp David has undergone expansion, with the addition of new cabins and amenities such as a pool. The retreat has also played host to significant diplomatic events, including the Camp David Accords in 1978 and the G8 summit in 2012.

Camp David provides presidents with a secluded environment away from the pressures of Washington, D.C. It offers them an opportunity to relax and engage in recreational activities amidst the picturesque countryside of Maryland.
