The Blackwater Snakehead Campsite is the perfect location for those that like to explore and experience nature when they travel. Located only 4.5 miles from Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and the Harriett Tumban National Park this campsite is the perfect match to your trip to visit Dorchester County. The campsite is perfect for "getting off the grid" and for "social distancting." But for those that wish to dine, shop, and explore Downtown Cambridge, it is only a 10 minute drive into town!

The campsite is in the middle of a farm field next to a wildlife impediment, behind our farm barn and our home. For the past two years an osprey has built a nest in the field adjacent to the campsite! Thee campsite has a picnic table, fire pit, and composting toilet within an outhouse! During the summer/fall months the fields are grown up in Corn and Soybeans. During the winter/spring months, after the harvest, the fields are open.

The campsite is located close to Pitcher Dam Creek, where you are welcome to put your Kayak over and fish for Snakeheads!

The space is also a perfect spot for hunters to lodge while they are hunting on public land at Blackwater Refuge or private land in Cambridge/Dorchester County!

Great little site. peaceful and secluded. Outhouse was clean and fire pit was ready to roll. Close to the Blackwater National Wildlife refuge. Will be staying there next weekend as well. Had an amazing sunrise with fog this morning. Will be staying there more often. Bug spray and Thermocell recommended in the hotter season staying anywhere in Dorchester County. Would stay there every trip but it does book quick for popular weekends so do not wait to long.

This campsite was great! The out house was incredibly clean. The location is private but close to downtown Cambridge. There is fishing nearby and we enjoyed watching all the turtles. The hosts were very generous and left a little firewood for us. The directions were easy to follow. 10/10 would visit again if we ever need to stay in cambridge
