  • Quaint camping stop with a small boating pond/small beach for swimming. Good for large group activities, and it looked like fishing was plentiful, despite some snapping turtles that were a little concerning. Had a great camping spot for the rv with electric hookup. A little overpriced compared to other state park options, but it was very well kept.
  • Our first time at the Maryland state park. The lady we talk to I think her name was Jessica I believe that's her name anyways she was very nice and she took her time with us to pick a camp ground.. Its very nice and beautiful we got here today 4/28/2017. Anyways so far so good 😎😎😎👍
  • Great park with swimming and man made beach. Small for boating. I prefer it in the off-season because it can get extremely crowded in the summer. The real downfall though has been waiting in line to use a filthy bathroom.
  • Decent campground. Has a lake. Swimming and fishing is a bit crowded and we were there when it was only 70 degrees and no sun! They have some trails but no significant points of interest.
  • Really nice park.. Must get there early fills up quick. Went to the camp side had a amazing time
