St Mary's River State Park Reviews & Ratings
Amazing place and sort if a hidden gem. Kids loved it...we didn't love the lack of showers but we made it work. I think that was a cool thing to do and discover Maryland and this is a county park. Entry is seven dollars per car. It's a shame not not many outside the area know about it. I think it a neat place! Great staff
Beautiful place, fish here often. If you don’t have a way to get out on the water like a kayak or boat, fishing will be tough. Accessible areas to the water are always crowded and the fish know to avoid those areas. You could still catch fish there, but I recommend getting out on the water to spots where there aren’t many people. High traffic areas are where you can find some of this lakes only trash, but everywhere else is kept tidy. Bathrooms and picnic tables are also very clean and accessible
Great lake, plenty of parking, nice trails, and lots of wildlife. Boat ramps are nice and there are lots of good places to kayak and fish. Bring your own water and snacks because there are no vending machines. There are a few stores less than a couple miles away.
Take that walk with a buddy ! Content with nature and enjoy being outside! Don't be out late tho- it gets pretty dark - hence the buddy AND cell phone!
Great trail riding; only you’s have to pay attention to the signage. There are multiple routes through the park, & around the 1/2 point it’s easy to follow the wrong route. Not that one route is better than the other; on a hot day though, 10 miles becoming 15 can suck the fun out real quick.
