What are the best beaches in Maryland?
Although Maryland swimming holes are pretty awesome, with over 3,000 miles of shoreline, it’s no surprise that the Old Line State is also home to some really amazing beaches. While Ocean City always draws a crowd, if you head about 10 miles south of there, you’ll find Assateague Island. What sets this beach apart (aside from the boating, camping, and hiking opportunities) is that it is home to over 50 wild horses. Over in Annapolis, there is Sandy Point State Park. Here, you’ve got one mile of Chesapeake Bay shoreline to take in. You can also fish as well as boat here, with rentals available at the marina.
How many state parks are in Maryland?
Within its nearly 12,500 square miles, there are 53 state parks in MD to choose from, each offering a variety of activities and scenery for visitors. At Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, you can boat at Clopper Lake, hike or bike more than 50 miles of trails or try your hand (frisbee) at the 27-hole disc golf course. If you’re looking to treasure hunt, head to Calvert Cliffs State Park in Lusby. After taking a two-mile walk, you’ll reach the beach, where you can search for all kinds of fossils, from shark teeth to shells. In total, there are 13 miles of hiking trails here.
Where can I go primitive camping in Maryland?
If you are looking to sleep under the night sky in Maryland in a traditional way, there are quite a few places that you can do so. In Flintstone, Green Ridge State Forest has 100 or so campsites that are pretty primitive. Amenities are pretty scarce here, including no plumbing at all. And in Janes Island State Park in Crisfield, while you can certainly stay at one of their modern campsites, there are also some back country ones that will offer you a more authentic camping experience.
