Fiddlers Green Farm

3 sites · RVs, Tents107 acres · Taneytown, MD
When you come here you are experiencing the rebirth of farming in this country while getting to connect with the natural world. This historic piece of preserved farmland has been in our family for 5 generations. The property is just over 100 acres with about half in forest conservation. We have two streams that join one another and create an amazing habitat for all kinds of wildlife. Our farm has always been a fun and healing place for our friends and family to gather. We love sharing the peaceful seclusion here with folks who enjoy and respect nature. We are a certified organic farm in the early stages of transforming it into a fully regenerative, permaculture operation. We grow hemp, medicinal herbs, and small grains as well as keep bees and a small tribe of goats. We'd love to have you!

Riverside Farm by the Monocacy

7 sites · Tents30 acres · Walkersville, MD
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING... 30 acres of mostly reclaimed farmland. We are located where Glade Creek flows into the Monocacy River. There is evidence of civil war activity here and the old river ford is on our property. Creek and river access make this a beautiful, peaceful place that is full of life. The energy here is overwhelmingly positive. Our house was built in the 1850s and the neighboring farm was built shortly after—lots of history on this property. You will be able to camp right next to Glade Creek which is always cool, clean, and refreshing. Our goal with opening the land up for camping is to eventually phase out commercial farming on the property and transform it into woodlands using native plants and trees. We've already started by planting hundreds of native tree species along the creek and river banks. Each camper gets us closer to that goal! Thanks for your support! See our map in the gallery for a complete overview of our property including site locations. Please note that you will need to drive back through the crossing to access the portable toilet. Property occasionally floods. Zero flash floods, just slow river overflow. Check this site for flooding info. https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?gage=fdkm2 Flood stage is 15 feet.

The best camping near Codorus State Park guide

Overview

About

Set around the 26-mile shore of Lake Marburg, Codorus State Park packs in plenty of variety. Head down to the water to fish for trout, crappie, and catfish; bring your motorboat to cruise around the lake; or look out for migrating waterfowl and bald eagles around the shore. You can even go scuba diving at Sinsheim Cove. Around the lake, hillside trails tempt hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders inland, or you can play a game of disc golf before checking into the lakeside campground. And come winter, there’s snowmobiling, sledding, and ice skating and ice fishing on the lake.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for RVs: Codorus State Park Campground has about 190 campsites with space for RVs up to 50 feet, electric and full hookups, and a dump station. 
  • Best for family camping: The three heated Camping Cottages sleep a family of five and have picnic tables and fire rings outside.
  • Best for glamping: The campgrounds have two yurts with bunk beds, cooking stoves, and fridges.
