I brought my grandkids, we played in the playground areas, they had a blast! Then we took a little walk along the water, down to the rivers edge. It is a beautiful, peaceful place.

The best little state park in the area. It's quaint, and quiet. There are sites for camping, but they are rarely crowded. We walk the paved paths in the woods for exercise, take our kayaks out on the river and even bicycle.

So there is a boat ramp (to the Choptank River) and some "camping" sites, but not much if anything else. I live close and love the outdoors but the "park" is very small and really nothing to do.
