Pocomoke River state park campground
Apr 07, 2014 by: nleuriwel from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Pocomoke River state park has a great campground! It is huge and there are pleanty of sites to please all sorts of campers. There are electric and non electric sites. Pleasantly wooded. Hiking trails. Wildlife. The river is beautiful. There are nice, but basic cabins to rent too. The park is also close to the MD shore. There is a pool and various water sports available. You can fish from their dock too. You need a MD fishing license. The park is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms are clean and also fairly well maintained. The staff at the office was friendly and pleasant. The camp store has a lot to offer. So far I have rented a cabin and at a later date we tent camped. We were very pleased both times. Easy to get to, situated on route 113. Be aware that there are 2 parts of this park. One is much more isolated and the 2 parts are very far from each other. So be careful of which site you are booking. Can't wait to go back!

A great park to spend the day doing many activities. Take advantage of the beautiful Pocomoke River.

Went camping there Xmas Eve 2011. Rented a heated cabin with my cousin and my nephew had a great time absolutely no one there. I'm sure during the summer the place is packed but if you like real quiet camping this is the place and time for it.

We had reservations but due to the Government shut down were unable to camp at the Assateaque Island National Seashore. We stopped at Pocomoke River State Park and stayed for 3 nights. What a terrific park! We stopped in the office and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The campstore, even in October, was well stocked with a large variety of items and food for purchase. Met one of the friendliest Rangers ever and had a nice conversation with him about where we were from and the Maryland area. There are many areas/loops to this park. You are sure to find one that fits your needs. Some of the sites are huge. Most are well spaced and provide privacy. There are many hiking trails, a water marina, playgrounds and cabins. Many had power which is a bonus in the fall. Potable water is easily available and close by. Bathrooms were very clean. Could us a little updating but all in all not bad. We would definately stay here again.
Went there for a hike and found a GREAT park...

I read a description of a hike through a Cypress Swamp and that it was a Pocomoke River State Park - we headed there and hoped we'd be able to find it (since we were are from out of state). We got lucky and ended up in the right part of the park and found the Nature Center, which we also lucky in that even though it was suppose to be closed there was a ranger there (he saw people around so he opened it up). We had a quick look around the Nature Center, which was really nice, lots of displays with live animals (though many were not there because they were moved for the off season). The ranger told us how to find the trail and it's name "Trail of Change Nature Trail" so off we went. The trail is amazingly beautiful, it starts out in the woods, and moves into the Bald Cyprus swamp, and the a tunnel of mountain laurel. We did loose our way as at the beginning of the trail there is an intersection that is not clearly marked. We chose the wrong path and ended up walking by the campsites - we learned that even the paths around the campsites are like nature trails themselves. We worked our way back to the trail and were rewarded. The Cyprus swamp is especially captivating, I'd never seen one before. We also saw a snake, curled up on a branch (having recently eaten). After our "hike" (it's about 45 min maybe) we went to the car and got our food and found a picnic table and ate our lunch there. We didn't go to the picnic grove which was back in the woods and looked very inviting. After we were done and getting ready to leave a ranger found us and warned us about an incoming storm, even showed us the radar on his tablet. When we visit this area again in the fall we hope to stay here and use it for a base in the area. This park is just beautiful.
