Woodmont Rod and Gun Club Map, Directions and Open House Schedule

Back in 1995 the property of the Woodmont Rod and Gun Club, aka Woodmont Natural Resource Management Area, near Sideling Hill WMA was transferred over to the fine State of Maryland. The State, never one to invest funds into parks, recreation, forests and such, promptly handed to property to this organization, The Izaak Walton League of America to "manage" the property. The state holds an open house twice a year so us commoners can get a looksee into the place.

The 2009 Open House Schedule for the Woodmont Rod and Gun Club is:

Saturday May 9, 2008 hours 10-3
Saturday September 19, 2008 hours 10-3

There is no entrance fee

Here are the directions to the facility:

Take I-68 to Woodmont Exit 77, continue on Woodmont Road for 5 miles south and watch for the red signs for the Woodmont Lodge. The lodge is located at 11761 Woodmont Road.

Even though the state still owns the Woodmont property, there is no available map of it on the Internet. The fine state of Maryland has provided me with a couple of paper maps of Woodmont, I have also referred to the DNR Sideling Hill Map. All the maps are different. I have taken the liberty of creating my own map of the Woodmont property, this was hand drawn by me to the best of my abilities. Feel free to use it.

Update 11/07/10 I see a lot of hits on this particular post of people trying to find out the location of the Woodmont Rod and Gun Club. I've also received some updated mapping software that actually has the border of the Sideling Hill WMA on it. So I figured somebody might be interested in an accurate Google Map of the WMA. This should be transferable to your Smartphone if you know how to work with Google Maps.
