Tuckahoe State Park - Queen Anne, MD
Activities: Tuckahoe State Park boasts excellent hiking, biking, and equestrian trails that wander through the park—including the popular Piney Branch Trail, the Physical Fitness Trail, and the Lake Trail.

Canoeing at Tuckahoe State Park is a popular activity on both the lake and the creek. You can watch bald eagles, ospreys, and great blue herons—as beavers and muskrats swim past your canoe. There are several pockets of the park that are accessible only by canoe. The park rents canoes and offers guided canoe trips by the park naturalist. There’s a launch ramp for boaters; gasoline motor use is prohibited.

The park even manages several organized canoe trips throughout the year:

  • Evening Canoe Trip, July 28, 5:00pm-6:30pm. $7 per adult, $4 per child.

  • Full Moon Canoe Trip, September 1, 9:00pm. $7 per adult, $4 per child.

  • Fall Foliage Canoe Trip, October 27, 9:00am-2:00pm. $12 per adult, $7 per child.

The park offers a family camping area with 33 campsites (including 18 with electric hookups) and a central bathhouse. There’s also a youth group camping area with four campsites that each accommodate as many as 30 people. Pets are allowed in the campground, but you must keep them on a leash at all times.

You can rent camper cabins or picnic shelters via the statewide reservation system. The park’s four camper cabins sleep four people each, and they come equipped with ceiling fan, electricity, and air conditioning. There are two 80-person shelters.

Two picnic areas each provide shaded sites with picnic tables, charcoal grills, and playground equipment. Larger groups can rent the Lake Pavilion via the statewide reservation system.

Tuckahoe State Park also runs two camps during the summer:

  • Fishing and Canoeing Camp, June 21-22 (session 1), July 12-13 (session 2). $35 per camper.

  • Advanced Climbing Camp, July 26-27. $45 per camper.

Contact the park office for more details and to reserve space in either camp.
