Trip Advisor Rustic cabin
Jan 02, 2015 by: jobosumm from Forked River, New Jersey
We camped two nights in one of the rustic cabins. The cabin was old and run down. Dirty and bugs everywhere. We camp all the time and have camped all over the United states - I know what to expect for rustic camping. This was just poor upkeep. If you want to stay in a cabin, try one of the mini cabins. They look much nicer! The park itself is very nice.. A nice walk out to turkey point and the light house. Hiking trails all around. Lots of wildlife (deer).

Trip Advisor Nice quiet hike

A wonderfully long walk to the Lighthouse that we usually see from our boat on the Chesapeake..being able to talk with others as they pass by on their way back....stops along the way overlooking the bay

Trip Advisor Back to Nature

If you are looking for a moderate hiking experience with natural surroundings, experience Elk Neck State Park. The park has accommodations for all levels of hiking/site seeing(fall leaves are at a peak) and the hike to the light house is a gem. You cannot go wrong with a day at Elk Neck State Park.

Trip Advisor Great weekend visit in the fall

Just returned from staying in the mini cabin Warbler #4. It was more remote and quieter and located just around from the corner from more crowded loop with electricity filled with families. Our cabin held a set of narrow bunk beds and double bed with 2 electrical outlets and a unit that provides either heat or AC. The cabin was in very good shape although the floor had some sticky residue and as to be expected, a few stink bugs and moths. The bathroom was about a 3 minute walk to the next loop so plan accordingly. Bathroom was very clean with hot showers for the early birds and later in the afternoon. We took advantage of hiking to the lighthouse which was a great 1 mile hike. The kids also really enjoyed the ranger-led talks at the nature center: on Saturday they got to dissect owl vomit and Sunday watch snakes and turtles get fed. We will definitely return during the quieter seasons.

Trip Advisor Great trip even in the rain.

We stayed in Rustic Cabin #8 Maple. It's set just a little bit back from the other cabins and has a more private fire pit area. It's a short walk to the waters edge and we brought coffee and bagels down to enjoy the early morning bird activity. Expect to see bald eagles land in the trees right by your cabin! We recommend the Beaver Marsh hike.We got a bit lost at the end but followed the sandy beach back to where we started. The bathrooms are spotless & offer scorching hot showers! Too hot for me, but nice to have the option on chilly days.
