Turner's Creek Park & Sassafras Natural Resource Management Area - Kennedyville, MD
Activities:

Turner's Creek Park: Fishing opportunities both from land and on the water are good. Two well marked trails, half mile and one mile long, provide opportunities for walking. An historic tree grove flourishes on the hillside above the parking area, beside both a Forestry Demonstration Area and a Soil Conservation Agricultural Demonstration Area. Special events include a Fishing Derby, for youth 15 and under, each Spring and Fall Fest in October with a variety of activities for adults and children alike. The Pavilion picnic area offers barbeque grills, volley ball court, horseshoes and swings, all with spectacular panoramic views of Turner's Creek. Turner's Creek provides excellent waters for kayaks and canoes.

Sassafras NRMA: Visitors can enjoy the varied trail system on foot, bike or on horseback. Fishing is available on a small freshwater pond and along the river's shoreline. Hunting is permitted for certain species during the legal hunting seasons.
