|The park is open year-round for most outdoor activities such as hiking, but some activities such as riflery and camping at the park’s cabins have their own limited seasons.
Elk Neck’s campgrounds contain 278 camping units—for tents, trailers, or motor homes—with conveniently located washhouses. There also are nine 4-person cabins to rent during the warm months. Picnic sites are available near the beach area, and larger groups can rent picnic pavilions.
There are several locations where the river is accessible to swimmers, including the North East River area. Caution: There are no lifeguards at the park. The park also supports fishing and flatwater canoeing in appropriate areas. The Rogues’ Harbor Boat Area offers launching ramps and rental boats.
There’s even a rifle range at the park. You must have a permit, which the park sells for $10 per day or $50 for the entire season. (Call 410-287-5333 for more information.) Fishing and hunting is permitted in season at designated areas with the proper permits.
