Location[edit]

From the wiki article:

Catoctin Mountain Park does not indicate the location of Camp David on its official park maps due to privacy and security concerns.

It can easily be found on Google Maps, heck, Camp David is just off Park Central Rd. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.188.64.244 (talk) 22:16, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

From Mount Vernon to Crawford[edit]

We might need to use the book From Mount Vernon to Crawford by Kenneth Walsh for this article, as it could use some sources, even if largely from an NPS site.--Bedford 04:41, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Possible Copyright Violation[edit]

A great deal of content is taken verbatim from an article located at the Federation of American Scientists site at http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/usa/c3i/campdavid.htm[1]. There is nothing noting that the material is in the public domain on that page, and the main site of the FAS states, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. We should look into this to make sure it doesn't violate any copyright rules. RobHoitt 00:31, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Just to be safe, I checked the NPS website, very little of the content here seems to be derived from that page http://www.nps.gov/cato/[2]. RobHoitt 00:39, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
As per the instructions on WP:CV, it is possible to revert to a non-copyrighted version, but it dates back to a stub at 06:47, 12 December 2001 (UTC). Realistically, I can still preserve the gallery and links sections. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 00:18, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
The Establishment section and Post World War II era and Modern era all seem to come from here. Some of the FAS material seems to come from here (the old Clinton whitehouse.gov site). FAS largely republishes material from other sources, so finding something on FAS without a credit is a tipoff that another source should be sought. I'd rather we wrote our own article but I think there is no copyright issue here; do others agree? --Dhartung | Talk 01:17, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
I guess the ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I think Zzyzz11 did the right thing here. (And I should point out that his user name comes from a way too archaic Zork reference.) Cheers! RobHoitt 00:45, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Obama at Camp David[edit]

Shouldn't this article be updated with news and photos of Barack Obama and his family at Camp David? It seems to concentrate mainly on Bush at the moment. 92.9.92.72 (talk) 17:10, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Two years later, the question still remains...where are pictures of the current president at Camp David? 203.110.206.180 (talk) 11:41, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia, the encyclopedia ANYONE can edit. If you think it's missing something, go find it! Every president has used Camp David with varying degrees, President Bush used it quite often so that's why there are many pictures from the Bush era (plus it was 8 years). It seems as though President Obama doesn't use it as much, or at least not to much publicity. --WGFinley (talk) 05:21, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

I went looking tonight and unfortunately there are ZERO Camp David images at whitehouse.gov for President Obama. I have found some Camp David images of him but without sources I am unable to tell if they are government photos (which we can use) or press photos (which we can't). I'll keep an eye out because it would be nice if there was something in the gallery from each president. --WGFinley (talk) 08:04, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Analaogous Facilities[edit]

The Bonnie Doon Reference for the Australian Prime Minister is a spoof as far as I can tell. Kirribilli House is the Sydney Residence of the Prime Minister of Australia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.35.82.133 (talk) 23:37, 21 April 2009 (UTC)


Marine Corps-centric[edit]

It seems this article has become more and more about the military (or naval) nature of Camp David. While interesting, it is not exactly on topic. Ought we to do a serious pruning of the article? Paul, in Saudi (talk) 02:51, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

I have struck that section, it looks good but appears to be original research as there's not a single source citation in the section. I tried to look for sources for that section and found nothing. Since it's been unsourced for nearly two years I removed the section. --WGFinley (talk) 05:18, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
I like it better now without the USMC focus. Paul, in Saudi (talk) 07:34, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Pictures[edit]

I believe the pictures need to be cleaned up. Some of them barely show Camp David at all and just focus on people. In particular, the pictures that only shows a tennis court wall, a door, or a dark, blurry background. EternalFlare (talk) 23:03, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
