King's Landing Park - Huntingtown, MD
King's Landing Park
Photo Tour   
King's Landing Park - 260 acres of hardwood bottom forest, river shoreline and wetlands - sits along the Patuxent River and Cocktown Creek. Once a YMCA camp, the site was converted to a park to preserve its many natural resources. The Marsh Trail to Cocktown Creek is adorned with wildflowers in spring and summer. A 200-foot fishing pier and canoe and kayak launch provide access to the bounty and beauty of the Patuxent, one of the Bay's major western shore tributaries. Don't be surprised if you see a Bald Eagle or a flock of Turkey Vultures soaring overhead.
