Tuckahoe State Park - Queen Anne, MD
Tuckahoe State Park
Photo Tour   
Tuckahoe State Park surrounds the upper reaches of Tuckahoe Creek, a quiet Eastern Shore stream flowing south to the Choptank River. In the park, the creek is bordered by for most of its length by wooded marshlands which support an abundance of wildlife in various habitats. A 60-acre lake offers boating and fishing on 20 acres of open water. The rest of the water is flooded woodland. The park contains 12 miles of scenic hiking, biking, and equestrian trails, plus picnic grounds and a playground for children. Adkins Arboretum, another Chesapeake Bay Gateway, sits largely within the park, with three miles of surfaced walkways leading through native woodlands.

Tuckahoe State Park is a great place to get a feel for part of the Eastern Shore and the beginnings of the streams that eventually flow to the Bay.

Family camping is permitted at Tuckahoe from March 25 to October 31 this year. The picnic shelters are available from March 30 to October 28.
