We found this state park by accident. So glad we did. We biked from the boardwalk to the park and all through the park on various trails. There's a great lake at the end.

There are plenty of hiking trails to choose from, but we did a sunny stroll along the Chesapeake Bay instead. Useful visitors station with lots of area maps and brochures. Hot Tuna a perfect choice for dinner from there, see my separate review.

Although I felt the Park should have been free as opposed to $7, it was still a nice park. You can camp, walk the trails or see the beach. There is a small museum. I was delighted to see postcards in the adjacent “Camp Store”.More
