The best camping near Elk Neck State Park guide

Overview

About

Drive to this Maryland state park 8 miles south of the town North East. Once you get here, it's an easy walk to the lighthouse, swimming area, and rustic cabins. Relax, breathe in the fresh air, and see majestic views of the Chesapeake Bay and Elk River. The name describes a peninsula that juts out into the bay where it meets the river.

Begin with a visit to Turkey Point Lighthouse. The historic structure, built in 1833, still lights the way for private watercraft. Volunteers give tours on the weekends, including walks to the top. The structure itself is only 35 feet tall. Turkey Point is the third-highest light off the bay, combining the height of the building and the 100-foot cliff.

Launch your boat from Rogues Harbor, a play on a pirate theme. Twelve miles of trails take you all over the park, from cliff overlooks to a sandy beach. Spend a day at Upper Bay Museum in North East to get a taste of life near the bay.

Reserve one of 250 campsites and 10 cabins for your vacay.
