Fossil Hunting: Hike 2 miles from the parking lot along an unimproved trail to the cliffs/beach area. Visitors may hunt for fossils on the open beach area and keep what they find. Because of the constant erosion of the cliffs, access to the cliffs is no longer permitted.
Hiking: Thirteen miles of marked foot trails are open to the public. Bicycles are restricted to the service road.
Picnicking: Picnic tables and grills are available on a first come, first serve basis. A pavilion can accommodate approximately 50 people and is available for rental by contacting Point Lookout State Park at 301-872-5688.
Fishing: A one acre fishing pond is located in the picnic area. A Maryland Freshwater fishing license is required for anyone 16 years and older. A Maryland Sportfishing license is required for Bay fishing at the beach.
Youth Group Camping: There are six sites available for youth groups. Sites are open April 1 and close the end of November.
