Thank you SO much for your support and we look forward to hosting you in 2021.There are three campsites on the farm, one by the pond and two by the river. Very secluded and all sites include a bundle of firewood, firepit, log bench, and a picnic table that seats 3-4 people.The original river campsite has been moved to a more remote spot so that all campers can access the pond and pier to the river.Farm encompasses nearly 300 acres on the Patuxent River.

The best camping near Calvert Cliffs State Park guide

Overview

About

Soaring sea cliffs line the shores of Chesapeake Bay at Calvert Cliffs, but the most sought-after treasures of this state park lie buried underfoot. Some 600 known species of fossils have been found beneath the coastal cliffs, and fossil hunters can still unearth some unique finds. It’s an almost 2-mile walk from the day-use area to reach the beach, but you can cool off with a swim on arrival. Away from the coast, 13 miles of hiking trails lead the way through forested wildlands, with some trails open to cyclists and horseback riders too. Camping isn’t permitted within the state park.

When to go

This coastal park is most enticing in summer, when the waters are warm enough to swim, and the tree-lined trails provide plenty of shade. However, the small beach can get busy on summer weekends, and picnic spots fill up quickly—opt for a weekday visit out of season if you want to avoid the crowds. Time your visit for low tide if you plan on fossil hunting. 

Know before you go

  • Calvert Cliffs State Park is 14 miles southeast west of Prince Frederick or about a 20-minute drive away along route 4. 
  • There is a per-vehicle fee to enter Calvert Cliffs State Park. 
  • There is a reservable picnic pavilion, but all other picnic tables and grills are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Restrooms can be found at the picnic area and the beach.
  • Walking or fossil hunting on or beneath the cliffs is illegal due to the danger of landslides. Swimming is permitted at the beach, but there is no lifeguard service. 
  • The beach at Calvert Cliffs State Park is accessible for wheelchairs by prior notice only—contact the park at least two weeks before your visit.
