The National Park Service has determined that inclusion of the tract within the park's boundary will make significant contributions to the purposes for which the park was established.

Executive Order 7496, dated November 14, 1936, transferred all the real property acquired by the former Resettlement Administration, which included the former Catoctin Recreational Demonstration Area, to the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary), and authorized the Secretary, through the National Park Service, to administer the projects transferred by the aforementioned Executive Order. Section 7(c) of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act, as amended, authorizes minor boundary revisions to areas within the National Park System after advising the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the proposed boundary amendment. The Committees were notified July 8, 2009. This action will add one tract comprising 63.8 acres of land, more or less, to Catoctin Mountain Park. The acquisition of this tract is intended to enhance the park's natural and ecological integrity and provide for greater recreational opportunities. The tract is identified as Parcels 96 and 243 on Frederick County, Maryland, Tax Map 6. The referenced tract is depicted on Catoctin Mountain Park land acquisition status map segment 01, having drawing number 841/92,001. This map is on file at the National Park Service, Land Resources Program Center, National Capital Region, and at the Office of the Superintendent, Catoctin Mountain Park.
