“People in their Natural Habitat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Well maintained hiking trails surrounded by trees, creeks, streams, lovely rock formation and some open fields. This lovely park spans 3 counties and offers an excellent location to exercise while experiencing the beauty of nature.

“Great place to relax or take the dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I miss having places like these to take our dogs. Here in Florida, everything is flat and ugly (northwest FL) and there is no scenery. The hills and river make for a nice view while taking a leisurely stroll and I would love to go back if I could.

“Nice campground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We spent the weekend here camping. The park was well maintained with very clean restrooms and shower facilities. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The park has a good variety of sites that are well separated for privacy. All sizes of camping RVs and tents can be accommodated in this campground. 30 amp electric is available on some sites with a central water source and dump station. It is a good place to camp if you are visiting Baltimore.
