Living in Maryland is so much fun. We have just about every wonder in nature available to us. If you’re looking for amazing camping destinations in Maryland I have 7 I think are out of this world. We’re excited to check out a few more this summer. Many of these have options for tent camping, cabin camping and RV camping. Best of all is when we can find a spot that will allow us to use a tent that goes in the back of our pick up truck. I adore that aspect because I’m not sleeping on the ground.
- Deep Creek Lake: There are tons of camping facilities right near Deep Creek but the lake itself is something else to see. It is a perfect place to head to all year long with skiing and tubing available in the winter, hunting in the fall and of course the lake in spring and summer for swimming and fishing!
- Mill Pond Cottage at Gunpowder Falls State Park: This is a great way to camp for those who don’t want to buy all the camping needs. The staff at the park will work with local businesses to set up your area and it will be a perfect vacation with less stress. There are tons of things to do during all of the seasons. They have a ton of events going all year long to keep you active too.
- Janes Island State Park: This is a perfect spot if you want to camp but don’t think you can handle being on the ground. The facility can hold up to 16 people and includes a kitchen. A quick walk will let you get in some fishing or crabbing!
- Assateague State Park: This is by far one of my favorite places to visit! Why? Because of the horses of course. Located on the shore, the wild horses are often roaming around. You cannot ride them but they are gorgeous to just watch.
- Tuckahoe State Park: The park has it all! There are campsites, a zip line, fishing, hiking trails and so much more. I love that on the grounds of the park is even an arboretum.
- Smallwood State Park: Tucked in to the woods of Southern Maryland is Smallwood State Park. There are several trails to explore and you can even bring your boat and head out on the water through the Sweden Point Marina.
- Cedarville State Forest: This is the location that has the most memories for me. We went to the forest every summer for girls scout camp. I have so many memories of walking around, singing as loud as we can, camping in the rain. Cedarville State Forest has changed some but the basics are still there including the legend of the Indian burial ground. If you go towards the end of the summer, you can be a part of the Indian Pow-Wow.
