This is an awesome place . Lifeguards are great but I always stay in the water.. even with my teen son and friends. We are the best protectors . There are plenty of spots to have a cookout in the shade. If you have kids toddlers to tweens there are summer camps (busloads) that arrive. Sometimes they are unsupervised .... More

Was really beautiful there and the scenic walk in the park was very enjoyable and relaxing. Unfortunately we weren't prepared to go inner tubing, but will be for next time. the train station was interesting and the park worker was very informative.

We visited the beach and water sport area of Gunpowder Falls. I highly recommend and will be returning. The facilities were clean, the water and sand beautiful, and we felt safe in a serene and friendly environment. Affordable for both resident and non resident, the visit was special and a most memorable experience. We had lots of fun!

First, this state park is actually many park areas, and the environment in each is somewhat unique. We have been to a number of the areas, mostly for hiking, and also for kayaking in the "Hammerman Beach" area, renting our gear from Ultimate Watersports, which is located there. The kayaking was good. The water is very wide there, and the... More

It is so peaceful to take a walk through Gunpowder Falls State Park. I would recommend allowing enough time (20 minutes each way) to go back to the falls. They are very relaxing and the trail back is fairly simple to hike.

Plenty of path options with various degrees of difficulty, but nothing truly difficult. A great way to burn a few hours of kid energy off as they walk, run and clamber their way around. Parking can be an issue if you're not first and the day is nice. Other than that, pack some water and snacks and you're all good.

I went here to get away from Baltimore and it is a very peaceful place. The area has a lot of history with a quaint village and shop from colonial times, i believe. Beautiful rocky river, the gunpowder, with little falls along the way. Great place for tubing and wading. Has a little cabinet with books you can take out... More

Was driving by Jerusalem village and stopped. Didn't even realize the walking trails were there until I was ready to leave....glad I didn't miss them. It was a beautiful day maybe a little on the warm side but I decided to give it a try. Didn't walk on any of the wooded trails because they were so muddy just made... More

Gunpowder Falls State Park is large state park in Harford and Baltimore Counties, consisting of several non-contiguous sections along Big and Little Gunpowder Falls. Note that these are not in fact waterfalls, but refer to rivers. We were up near Baltimore for a wedding and came here to go hiking before the ceremony and went to the Jerusalem Mill area.... More
