What a great place for hiking, kayaking, biking, swimming, and viewing wildlife. Kayaks are decent and only $19 a day. This is a lovely place to get away from it all close to home.

A good place for a walk. On the weekends the road is closed from 10AM to 5PM, so people can enjoy the park. Recommended for wet days.

One of coolest the places to visit while in Maryland, esp. during autumn. You can go fishing or just visit the place to enjoy the view. There is a place also where you can rent a boat or go kayak.

This is a wonderful beautiful big place to kayak. The Fishing Center rents kayaks (double or single), that they just purchased, so the kayaks are in great shape. Take lunch and go picnicking on one of the islands.

I prefer to ride my bike here, since it's a quiet place w/ little traffic. The trails are plentiful, for all types, from a peaceful walk in the woods, to a heart pounding hike. Nomatter the time of year, it's always beautiful!

As an avid mountain biker and even lover of singletrack, I rented a bike and took a spin around this trail. Nice use of the area and fun flow. Really easy for occasional riders or beginners. There are some places where more advanced riders will...More
