Catonsville, Maryland is located on the western border of Baltimore, in Baltimore County. Washington DC is approximately 50 minutes' drive from the town of Catonsville, and Philadelphia is about two hours away. Book an RV in Catonsville if you want to stay in a suburban area away from the big city, but very close to main roads and shopping centers.

The Piscataway tribe occupied Catonsville before European settlers arrived in the area in the 1700s and build roads. The town was named after its founder Richard Caton, son-in-law of Charles Carroll, who was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. For decades, this town was just a farming community, but soon it became a layover for travelers from the Baltimore harbor and Ellicott City. The town started growing and became a summer escape for wealthy Baltimorean merchants, who built their Victorian and colonial-style summer homes there. Some of these houses are still standing, and this town is a beautiful place to see, especially if you like history. Rent an RV in Catonsville if you would like to explore the surrounding area, which was one of the first suburban areas in the US.
