We visited this park with my daughter and family as they were doing the Maryland Park Quest. We had to walk some of their trails and found a diverse and beautiful area. From deep forest to meadows to stream side the trails were well marked and easy enough for the four year old to travel. There is a very nice... More

We loved camping here. The park was well maintained and quiet. Beach is small, so it can be crowded during holidays. Hiking trails are not difficult so kids can have fun. Only minor flaw is that some camping sites are closely located and you can't find it out until you get there. Overall, it was very pleasant camping.

Have enjoyed a spring fishing trip there over the past several years. Savage River area has unique tundra foliage and fairly secluded fishing opportunities for that time of year.

Perhaps one of the nicer parks I've visited during the winter season. There are lots of options to which way you can explore the land during the winter. There are rentals for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The staff is extremely helpful with getting you in the right gear for your body type, explaining the best trails suited for your... More

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
