We’ve come here two years in a row to go cross country skiing and have a great time when we come. Complete rentals are $15 for 2 hours $25 for a full day and 40 for two days. We’ve always rented for two hours, played hard and then we’re ready to be done. Rangers are very helpful and rentals are... More

We have camped here several times, and have had great experiences on each visit. The camp sites are well maintained, and each one has a picnic table, a counter with a pole for hanging a lantern, and a fire ring with an adjustable grate for cooking. There is a central bath house with showers and restrooms - they can get... More

This was our third visit to New Germany State Park. The first two times we camped, and this time we stayed in one of the cabins. The cabin was rustic and cozy. It included a small kitchen, bathroom, and a wood-burning stove. Our favorite thing to do at New Germany is hike. There is also a beautiful lake for swimming,... More

We visited for a day trip in winter to hike some of the many trails. The park is large with many well marked trails of varying difficulty. The trails are all groomed for the cross country skiers who visit but are shared by hikers. There is a ski rental business but it was not manned the quiet Thursday we visited... More

Simple pleasures. Read about its origins! Nice lake, and staying in the rangers cabin was cool. In the winter with good snow, the cross county skiing is fabulous.

We went the week before Memorial Day weekend and there were less than 10 people occupying campsites. It was nice to have the place to ourselves. The kayaking rentals were not available at the time, so we made use of the different trails that the park had to offer. The trails are good for beginners or seasoned hikers. It was... More

Almost hate to give this place a good review for fear of more people going there! Arrived on Friday afternoon and set up--no other campers in the 10 or so site dog friendly loop. Couple more sites taken on Saturday, both left the next day. A large group migrated over from their party at one of the very nice pavilions... More

We have been waiting for the cabin renovations and finally got to stay in one one Labor Day weekend. It is basically one big room with a loft and a separate kitchen. However they just renovated everything inside; kitchen, bathroom floors, ceiling, walls. This is a real cabin in the woods with hardwoods everywhere inside and out, and a nicer... More

They say that visitors frequently call it a “best kept secret” and we would all agree. This is only for people that want to “unplug”. We camped here and had no water, electricity, Wi-Fi or phone service. We laughed because they actually have a phone booth that people still use! They have a small manmade lake (Maryland doesn’t have any... More
