The mature black pine on the edge of the forest was brought to this country in the boot of a young girl from the Black Pine Forest of Germany!

Black Pine Pond is an excellent place to camp. We were greeted by Aaron upon arrival and given multiple options for campsites. We ended up staying in a beautiful field surrounded by trees, great for star gazing. The property also has trails, a pond, and we even spotted a peacock hanging around. The site is fairly close (a little over an hour) to Baltimore if you want to take a trip into the city for crabs. Aaron and Angela we're very friendly and helpful while also giving us space. They even delivering Easter candy to our campsite (since we stayed on Easter weekend). I would definitely camp there again and recommend Black Pine Pond to anyone looking for a great place to camp.
We LOVED staying at Hawkwood Farm! The Rainbow's End campsite is across the picturesque pond from the farmhouse -- a pretty view, but still plenty private (2-3 minute walk across a footbridge). The lawn of the campsite was well-maintained with a fire circle, picnic table, and close to the pit toilet and spigot by the barn. We loved the farm's peacock, horses, the farm dog, and the chickens! The hosts greeted us upon arrival, and when they learned we forgot to bring our own firewood, they brought us what they had handy -- so nice! The directions to the farm are good, we had decent cell service, and the hosts were communicative and helpful before we arrived. We loved the farm and will likely come back if it's available next time we plan a camping weekend!
Rainbows End is a rejuvenating place. Peaceful, calm, serene and I can felt the weight of the world lift from my shoulders when I was onsite. The host family is wonderful, considerate and accommodating. The site and surrounding area is a great place to clear your head and reconnect with Nature.
