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.



Trip Advisor Great Park & Lighthouse
Oct 09, 2014 by: ErnTrekker from PA
Visited the park & lighthouse for the first time this past weekend. Walked the scenic trail from the parking area south to Turkey Point. The trail appears to be about .75 mile long with some elevation changes along the way. The lighthouse grounds are very nice with spectacular views of the Bay & River. There were 2 port-a-potties on the grounds - just in case;) The only disappointment was that the lighthouse itself was closed (slightly after Noon on Saturday) as no one was available on site (the gift shop was closed as well). It was still worth the walk to see the views! I would like to return & walk to the top of the light on the next visit....

The lighthouse closes at 4:00...just a heads up to anyone who wants to climb up inside. The trail is wide and a little hilly. About a mile one way, a nice easy walk. The volunteer was helpful and held our dog while we climbed in the light house. The view is great from the 100' cliff. It makes for a nice afternoon.

Nice leisurely walk out to lighthouse. A little hilly and lots of stones and gravel. Make sure you have your walking shoes on.

Went to Elk Neck in the middle of the week. It was very quite. We choose this campground so we could do a lot of kayaking. We drove to the harbor, it's only about 10 minutes from the campground. If you are registered camper, you do not have to pay to get into the harbor. Saw a lot of Eagles!! The people in Maryland are very friendly. The campground was clean, the bathrooms were clean. I would definitely go back. But I would bring a bike. This is a large campground with several camping loops. Happy trails to you!
