Patapsco Valley State Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Took my family camping a few weeks ago and it was a really great time. We shared a site with another family and it was a bit tight but we managed to fit two 6 person tents and our vehicles on the site. If you have more than that it might be a bit tight so just check the site dimensions before you stay. The trails were good, the park was clean and so where the restrooms & showers. Is definitely camp here again in the future.

  • It was a great park, clean and pleasant with trails of different intensities. I recommend to check the entrance you go to and that it matches your desired path before going. The more difficult trails are t suitable for a casual walk but there are easier ones that would suffice. Ask the helpful staff for more details. Entrance fee of $2 per vehicle for the day, definitely worth it!

  • Patapsco Valley State Park is a perfect example of safe urban camping for family and friends. It's a good place for beginners. The location also has a 1.8, there and back medium rated trail called the Patapsco River Ridge Trail connected to the camp site, which will take you to the Patapsco River. The camping areas are in walking distance to shower and bathroom facilities. It also has drinking and non-drinking water available (potable/non-potable). You can also buy ice and fire wood, which will last a night camping. The tent sites have power or no power and provides a wood pit/grill with picnic benches. Will come back again.

  • Really great park! Tons of trails (paved and non paved). Great, easy walk all along the river if you want or you can dip off on one of the loop trails through the woods. You even get to walk through a tunnel on one trail! Multiple spots to park and hike in. Also have a playground for kids! Would recommend to anyone looking for a day out in the sunshine!

  • Visiting Patapsco Park in mid-September during the week with low humidity and temperatures was a good way to spend a day off with my spouse. We parked and walked down to the falls. On the way to the parking lot we saw a fawn crossing the road. The large Koi fish that was in the water swam too fast for me to snap a photo. Along the walk there were areas for families to picnic and grill food and enjoy nature. Walking down to falls did require a sure foot and good balance but offered an excellent view. It costs $2 per car during the week and $3 on weekends. I highly recommend visiting.
