Nice quiet park

I have sailed around this park many times, but was happy to go check out the fort and camping facilities this time, I would definitely come back to camp for a couple days. The fort and Prison was a nice attraction and was in good shape.
Surprised there was a dog beach!

We camped here for Labor Day weekend on the Tulip Loop which was pet friendly and had full hook up. Our site was very private, level and clean. The only problem we had during our stay was the bugs. We all came home with a bunch of bites even with using the bug spray. After exploring the park we were very pleased to find a beach that allowed our chocolate lab to enjoy the bay with us. The beach was not crowded and the water was beautiful. It was a great day for our family.
Not a friendly place to go

My wife and I were going to the beach on Labor Day weekend. But the people there were well lets just say we decided it was best NOT to get out of our car.
Great Fishing and Crabing

We stayed at Point Lookout State Park on more then one occasion. It was a wonderful spot to fish, crab, sight see both beaches and historical locations. We had the best time and different experience during each visit. Fort. Lincoln was a wonderful but small Fort. was one of the best historical things on the site but only took about 10 mins. to go though. The beaches were nice and had a nice place to BBQ. We found some pretty sea glass on the beach. The Saint Mary's area right out side of the park offered some enjoyable all day historical sites to go though.
A place where Time, Tranquility, and Tide stand still

This park is located where the Potomac River meets the Chesapeake Bay. All major U.S. historical events left their marks here, from Captain John Smith’s exploration in 1612 to a strategic lookout for British ships during the Independence War and War of 1812 to a fort stronghold against potential Confederate attacks during the Civil War. Today it offers something for everyone, a lighthouse, an reconstructed fort, a mature museum, a swimming area with sandy beach, an overnight campground, and boating and fishing.
