For hiking, pay the park pass fee and hike on the many park paths. The lighthouse path is a walk, not a hike, VERY busy, and parking is next ro impossible.

Pretty lighthouse with great views but there are some things you need to know. 1. It is about a mile from the parking lot to the Lighthouse 2. There is no running water available at the park 3. The edge of the cliffs are open with no guard rails so watch your kids and pets 4. There is very limited parking at the park with the overflow parking lot another 3/4 mile away at least with a huge hill We hiked here from the Elk Neck Campground. it is about 3.5 miles Each Way.

Very very small beach and lots of rocks (do not expect lots of sandy) make sure to wear water shoes. Water was clean and calm, great for little children. Bathrooms were fair and they offered showers. Recommend dinner in North East Maryland after the beach.

Well kept trail takes you along the cliffs, fields and forest to the lighthouse at Turkey Point. The trail is rocks/grass and is fine for most levels of walking from small children to older adults, but it is not wheelchair/scooter accessible. The grass along the pathways is cut very wide, so passing folks on the trail can be done while socially distanced, on most parts of the trail (there are a few narrow spots). Very nice walk to a scenic view!

The state park is very pretty. Walked the mile or so trail to the Turkey Point lighthouse in the middle of a scorching summer afternoon though, so I would recommend going in the morning or evening or in the spring or fall.
