Trip Advisor Wonderful state park to camp, swim, hike, boat, and more!
Aug 25, 2014 by: legorefugee from Timonium, Maryland
We visited the Nature Center where the staff was very friendly and enthusiastic. The nature center has many exhibits and specimens of wildlife native to the area. We then followed a trail down to the boat house where we got two canoes. We took the loop around an island for our canoe trail, as we were doing a ParkQuest activity. The back half of the trail was peaceful and easygoing. The last part of the trail opens out onto the river where there were a few other boats and people skiing, but we kept close to the shore and still had a nice ride. This park is beautiful as is the river. I thoroughly enjoyed this park! I want to go back and try camping here as the campgound looked very nice and had a large swimming pool.



Trip Advisor Camping - Shad Landing
Aug 23, 2014 by: Linda R from Baltimore, Maryland
Not our first time and will not be our last. Stayed for a week. Deer Run loop, Acorn loop last time. Nice and shaded. Required to stay Saturday since we booked through Friday. Great central location for kayaking various spots. Janes Island about 20 minutes drive. Wish they had a better spot for leaving your kayak and for putting it in though. Nice park for bike riding too. They will begin upgrading restrooms in September. They need to upgrade their trailer dump station. Too short and narrow for trailers to get through easily. Beautiful in the Spring-Weekend trip in April. . Toll roads are too expensive for us to visit as often as we would like.



Trip Advisor Great family camping trip

I camped here with my extended family ranging in age from 1 1/2-63 and we all had a really wonderful time. We had five sites that were all situated right next to each other in the F loop near the riverfront and camp store. The campground itself had a lot of nice things to do like boat rentals, a pool, nature center, playground, and hiking trails and we enjoyed all of them. The bathrooms (at least the ones we used) were always clean and there was laundry facilities at the camp store. The campground is also convenient to get to Ocean City and Chincoteague and Assateague Islands for day trips which we enjoyed.

BE sure to visit the NATURE CENTER! the Rangers were SO nice. The girls (ages 9 & 13) really enjoyed their visit to this small, but interesting center located in the park near the restrooms. They are currently building a HUGE log canoe there. FUN to see.



Trip Advisor Nice campground!!

This isn't a "resort" type campground, so if you're looking for planned activities and tons of amenities, this isn't the place for you. HOWEVER, if you are looking for a nice place to camp that is clean and well kept, to get back to nature...you've found it!!! They have a great pool for cooling off. Laundry facilities and Bathhouses are always clean! Great plus is that it is very inexpensive and if you want to head to the hustle and bustle of OC MD, you're less than a half hour away.
