Explore more of Maryland’s parks with a visit to Tuckahoe State Park, located 35 miles east of the Bay Bridge in beautiful Caroline County.

The park has a creek and a 60-acre lake for boating and fishing and 20 miles of scenic trails for hiking and biking. Wind through native woodlands on 3 miles of surfaced walkways in Adkins Arboretum. Mountain bikes, kayaks and canoes are available to rent during the summer. Each weekend, Memorial Day through Labor Day, park staff offer a number of free family activities. This weekend is an Aviary Tour from 3-4:30pm where you learn about birds of prey, why they are at the aviary, and how the rangers care for them

A ropes course is available for group use with a 40-foot rock wall, tube net, zip line, 50-foot giant swing and more.

The tire playground will also be a huge hit for kids who want to climb and play.

Tuckahoe is a great place for camping as well because it has campsites and cabins for families looking to stay overnight.

The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. There is no day use fee.
