Point Lookout State Park - Scotland, MD
Point Lookout State Park
Photo Tour   
Point Lookout State Park sits at the southernmost tip of Maryland's western shore on a peninsula formed by the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River. Recreational opportunities abound in this picturesque Bay setting. Swimming, fishing, boating and camping are just a few of the activities to be enjoyed.

The park's peaceful surroundings belie its history as the location of a prison camp for more than 52,000 Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. A museum on site recounts this vivid history.

Hours: The park is open year-around. Camping and some other activities are seasonal.
Fees:

October - April: $3.00/vehicle for MD resident and $4.00/vehicle non-resident

May - September: Weekdays $3.00/vehicle for MD resident and $4.00/vehicle non-resident. Weekends and Holidays: $5.00/person for MD resident and $6.00/person non-resident
