Introduction of Tuckahoe State Park

The 500-acre Tuckahoe State Park is located along the shoreline of Tuckahoe Creek in Queen Anne, Maryland. The park’s motto is “healthy parks, healthy people,” and they have programs to help people of all ages enjoy all of the park’s activities. There is plenty to keep everyone busy while visiting the park, no matter how long you stay, from archery to ziplining and boating to camping. All year, the park hosts a youth group as well as learning activities for the general public. The Scales & Tales program is the most popular, as it allows visitors to get up close and personal with raptors like bald eagles and hawks. There’s also a disc golf course, an archery range, picnic areas, and an arboretum. You can cool off by playing softball on the ballfield near the campgrounds and then swimming in the lake. Maryland is also enjoyable when it is cold. During the cold winter months, when most other parks are closed to the public, you can enjoy RV camping and hiking. Tuckahoe State Park is open from December to March. Your horse may enjoy a cold-weather romp on one of the equestrian trails, and you will enjoy Adkins Arboretum, which is open all year.

Tuckahoe State Park Camping

The park has a family camping area with 51 sites, 33 of which have electric hookups, as well as a central bathhouse. The park also has a youth group camping area with four sites that can accommodate up to 30 people each. There is a central bathhouse with showers and toilet facilities. Pets are welcome in the campground, but they must be kept on a leash at all times.

Tuckahoe State Park Activities


Bring your hiking gear because there is a lot of hiking in this park for you to enjoy. Begin with the easy Pee Wee Trail, which is 3.6 miles one way. The path begins at the Equestrian Loop Trail parking lot and takes you along the park’s edges, with some nice ascents and descents. Nancy’s Meadow Loop is another pleasant and easy hike with the added benefit of being very floral. Depending on the time of year, you will see a variety of flowers along this 0.8-mile path, as well as wildlife. The Fitness Trail, Lake Trail, and Lore of the Land Nature Trail are among the other trails.

Guided Canoe Trip

Learn proper paddling techniques from the experts at Tuckahoe State Park on a canoe course, or take in the scenery on a guided canoe trip. Canoeing 101 is a two to a three-hour course that teaches skills, terminology, rescue techniques, and paddling techniques. Kids as young as eight years old can take this class during the summer, and upon completion, they will receive a badge indicating that they are skilled paddlers. The canoe trip is for those 14 and up, and it includes paddling through the woods with park staff members guiding you. This trip requires prior paddling experience.

Challenge Course

Are you looking for a fun and unique activity to engage and challenge your children? Tuckahoe State Park’s Challenge Course features over a dozen different activities, including ziplining, a rock wall, and a 50-foot swing. Those aged seven and up can participate in the course with a member of the park staff and learn about group dynamics, leadership, problem-solving, and team building. Climbing a 25-foot pole and a 40-foot rock wall may seem intimidating to you, but your kids will most likely enjoy it.

Disc Golf

Are you looking for a new disc golf course? So, bring your golf equipment to the park when you visit. The Tuckahoe State Park disc golf course was approved by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PGDA) in 2006, so it is a well-established course in Maryland. This is a short but enjoyable 18-hole course that is mostly flat and sandy with some thick trees in places. Many of the holes necessitate some planning and skill. However, beginners can benefit from the course as well.

Tuckahoe State Park Location

Tuckahoe State Park is easily accessible from US-301 or US-50 to MD-309, MD-313, or MD-404 in the southeastern section of Maryland’s peninsula. The park is located on the banks of Chesapeake Bay, about 37 miles from Annapolis, the state capital. There are several museums and the Maryland State House to visit. You’ll also be only 65 miles from Baltimore, the birthplace of the Star-Spangled Banner, where you can visit the National Aquarium and see the Civil War Warship in the harbour.

Wye Oak State Park is only 10 miles to the southwest for those who enjoy visiting state parks. The park was created to protect the Wye Oak Tree, which was felled in 2002. The trunk remains, proudly displayed every day. Martinak State Park, located 19 miles to the southeast along the Choptank River, has some excellent fishing and hiking opportunities. There are also playgrounds, picnic shelters, and camping areas in this park.
Tuckahoe State Park’s roads are relatively flat and well-maintained, so you won’t have any trouble getting around in your RV. It can be difficult near the campgrounds if your RV is large or you are towing a trailer.It is best to leave the rig at the campsite and walk or bike to your destination while in the park.
