This is a lovely park, with campgrounds handy, picnic sites sprinkled through, and of course hikes. While AllTrails calls these medium, they are on the easy side for those used to rocky woodland walks. The longest is Yellow, at seven miles. These are definitely not...More

If you like to hike this place has several 2 and 3 mile loops you will enjoy. The paths are well marked and there are some nice hills to enjoy. Be sure to stop at the lookouts before you leave to see breath taking views...More

My wife and I make it a point to hike every weekend. Last weekend, we visited Gambrills State Park after seeing some great trail reviews on an app. The park is not crowded, well organized, and easy to find parking. Several trails of varying difficulty...More

This park has some great trails. The trails are for the most part away from the road so the sound pollution is minimal.

As a typical state campground, it's better than many, but the Kelly's as camp hosts make it wonderful. They keep an eye on things, and just run a very tight -- and tidy -- ship. They're not here long so don't know what it will...More

If you want to park for free go to the trailhead parking which is midway between the larger parking area. Also you need to get there early and park closely to the other cars. I got there just before ten and there were no legitimate...More

We just spent two nights in the campground at Gambrill State Park. We stayed in one of the four rustic camper-cabins. They also have regular campsites for campers or tents. It's a pretty, woodsy campground with a well-maintained bath house. The main activity at Gambrill...More

Lots of short trails many branch off to others. We spent a few hours here. Enjoyed the overlooks for Frederick and Middletown. Easy to get to off the interstate.

Sorry for delay. I did a drive through the sites yesterday. #16 is one of the larger sites and is a pull through. Very nice. I don't drive an rv, but it looks like a 22 wouldn't be a problem
