Site was heavily wooded and very private; we were surrounded by woods on three sides, and could only see our neighbors across the narrow loop road. Site included a picnic table, fire ring, grill grate and lantern post. Pad was nice and level; didn't need to use any blocks. Drive way was just long enough to accommodate our truck. Site was a little farther from the bath house than we usually prefer, but didn't really matter as we were camping sans kids this time. I loved the privacy of this site, so I didn't mind the little bit of extra walking. Almost all the sites looked relatively private, with a fair amount of trees in between, but our was on of the only sites that was truly surrounded by forest. Since we were here in November, the leaves were especially beautiful.

Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was large, heated and extremely clean; looks recently renovated. There was also a nice large dishwashing station on the Men's side, which I love. The park itself is very quiet, pretty, and easy to get around. Lots of multi-use trails, which i believe are mostly flat, so maybe not the best for die-hard hiking enthusiasts. We took the Lake Trail down to the day-use area, and it was a very pleasant, scenic hike that took less than 20 minutes. The lake/day-use area is beautiful, with a pavilion, picnic tables, boat launch area, volleyball and large recycled-tire playground for kids. There were quite a few people out and about, more than I would have expected during November. The lake is popular for fishing, kayaking and canoeing (no swimming allowed). During the on-season, canoes and kayaks are available for rent to explore the lake and water trails in the adjacent Tuckahoe Creek. Would love to come back in the summer to check them out. There is also a disc golf course, challenge course, and archery range on-site. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a very rural area. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity, except for the Adkins Arboretum. It's located on park property, but operated by an independent non-profit. The trees and walkways are beautiful, and they host a lot of workshops and special events throughout the year. Closest small town is Denton, which has a few restaurants and shops. St. Michael's, which is definitely a major Eastern Shore tourist spot, is about 45 minutes away.

Nicely wooded campground, with large well-spaced sites for privacy. We stayed in the electric loop in early October with no one on either side. Without reservations, self-checkin was a little confusing (and I don't know how much of the year they do it this way). They post a list at the entrance with names, site numbers, and dates reserved, and we had to take note of available sites (since it wasn't very full, I actually wrote down the site numbers of the taken/reserved), then drive through and pick the one we liked. Payment is made (cash or check) with an envelope slipped into a locked payment box. Honor wood available for $4 from a shed. (We didn't have one dollar bills, so we slipped in a five.) Our drive took us across the Annapolis Bay bridge, which is an experience in itself. The majority of the drive after that is through farmland, so it was interesting to suddenly reach a huge patch of dense forest. Overall, this was a very decent place for us in our RV. We didn't see/use the bath houses, so my high rating does not take that into account. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

Busy on weekends, deserted during the week. We stayed 4 nights while we visited Annapolis and surrounding area. A 45-minute drive into Annapolis was easy, crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (toll). Our 38 ft. motor home and vehicle just fit in the site. Sites 28, 30, 31 and 33 seemed best to us for big rigs, lay out and location. Site was large and level, with good 30 A. electric. Well spaced with lots of privacy, and shade. Bath houses were typical state park bath houses, reasonably clean and mostly free of insects, and included dish washing facility. Good spot for kids with camp store and trails as well as lake. Great spot for bicycling. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

We come to Tuckahoe often because its close to home and a nicely maintained small campground with lots of room between sites, paved roads, and enough activities to be busy but restful. This visit happened to be a rainy weekend but between showers we managed to hike the two loops. Sites are back in and a mix of level and sloped. Use the pictures on the reservation site to look for large trees that will limit overhang off the site. Some require a bit more engineering than others to level up but most with RVs seemed to be able to accommodate the terrain. Restrooms are cleaned daily and in good condition. Power was clean. Water points are on the loop road and accessible. Dump station easily accommodated our 35 footer with toad. Rangers patrol often and were quick to enforce the basic rules like keeping tents on sites and number of vehicles parking at each site. Great kayaking creek with tons of turtles basking in the sun (if its out). Great place for young kayakers. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay. The sites were nice enough, plenty of space between sites, lots of trees. The bathhouse sits in the center, there are several access paths but they weren't easy to find in the dark. The sites are electric only, our hook up was fine, however our friends site had problems. We would stay here again. We camped in a 5 th wheel. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our trip to Tuckahoe State Park this past weekend in MD was excellent. We stayed in the electric loop site 24, which was very large and we had plenty of space between us and the neighbors. The CG roads were paved and the sites were level with crushed stone and a nice fire ring. The dump station was very convenient and located on the exit road. I didn't need the bath house, but checked them out and they were very nice and clean. At the entrance of the electric loop was a shed where you could get bundles of firewood for $4 (self-service). There was also a shed where they sold various food, t-shirts, and other stuff. The park has a frisbee golf course, which we plan to try out next time we go back. The park is located in a rural area that mostly consists of farmland. If you want to relax, this is the place to camp. Yet it's close enough to Annapolis and other developed areas if you want to sight see or eat out. 3 nights stay, including the $8 reservation fee, was still under $100 for an out of stater. All in all it was an excellent trip and well worth the money. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are paved. Garbage has to be taken to one dumpster. Firewood is available for camp fires. Very shaded. They patrol often to make sure all is well. Paved roads. A bit in the middle of nowhere. A lot of families show up on the weekend. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

No ranger or camp host on site. Sites are nice, as state parks usually are. No WIFI. Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner. Especially in the showers. They have the plastic mats in the stalls and I don't think they have been lifted up in a long time to be cleaned properly. Just an okay place to stay but we would not return.

This is a great spot to camp. We stayed mid week, Sunday through Tuesday and the park was effectively deserted. Only 6 of the 30 sites in the electric loop were occupied when we arrived and that dwindled to three before we left. Bath house appears to have been recently renovated, might be a bit crowded if all sites are full on a weekend. Sites are widely spaced and the packed gravel pad areas are relatively level. Approaches are paved. Some sites have large trees at the back of the pad which will limit overhang and RV length. Check the photos on the reservation site for trees. Rangers patrolled a few times each day. The entrance is not gated but the sites are not visible from the nearest road. Surrounding area is very rural. Camp area is heavily wooded making it cooler than adjacent field areas. Good walking trails are available. Biking along the paved roads is available but trails leading from the camp to the rest of the park would class as difficult for biking. Arboretum ($5 entry fee) is a good mile and a half walk to two mile walk. We did not go in, but from the visitor’s center it appeared to have a lot of interesting trails to explore. Lake is about a half mile by road/trail. Firewood for sale was green and took a lot to keep going. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

We just returned from spending Labor Day weekend here. I agree with the previous reviews: very nice park; well-maintained, clean, spacious. We biked over to the camp office to get a trail map and ask about the best kayaking, and were treated to the aviary - about a dozen owls and hawks that are residents due to injury and/or imprinting on humans. Rangers are very friendly and helpful; they came through the campground with a hawk one night, and they run several programs like guided canoe/kayak trips, scavenger hunts, zip line, etc. There are two playgrounds, a disc golf course, and safe roads to bike. The Adkins Arboretum trails can be biked, which I think would be more fun than walking them like I did. Kayaking up the creek from the lake was my favorite part; it's a beautiful paddle and we saw dozens of turtles of all sizes. I could see how a rowdy party could be a problem; even though the rangers patrol occasionally there is no staff on site 24/7. Firewood is sold on the honor system and is newly-split and damp, but possible to burn. The only reason I don't give this park is perfect 10 is the bugs - they were fierce. I know it's part of camping but if you are a bug magnet like I am, it can really affect your trip. The mosquitoes at the campsite and the biting flies on the kayak trips were pretty bad - we set up a screen room and I pretty much stayed there if we were at the site. Overall this is a great park and we will likely return again for a quick getaway. Oh, and the Irish Pub in Denton serves some great food - try the fries with provolone, bacon and ranch dressing! We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Truck Camper.

This park is a real gem! A true camping experience in the outdoors. Exceptionally clean, all wooded sites. Individual site pictures available on their web site. Nice lake for fishing, kayaking, but no swimming - but lake is quite a ways from the camping area. Camp site very quiet, but nice for kids bike riding, etc. Nice hiking and bike trails thruout the park. I would guess this is at least a 1000 acre park. Camping sites are set very far apart from each other, easy to back into - very well layed out campsite. Water avaialble at various locations. Recommend sites 26, 28,30,32 - water close to #30. Wonderful arboretum within the park. There really is no bad site in the electric loop. Did not check out the non-electric sites, but assume they are the same. If you are in the area, this is definetly a "do not miss" campsite. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

As stated by another poster, this park is a little gem. We stayed in the 30 amp electric loop, site 33. The sites are spaced out with good room and growth between them. (We are 38 feet.) The park is quiet and family orientated. For the most part sites are level, there are a few sites that wouldn't support a large motorhome. One can go on the web site and see a description and picture of the actual site, which is big plus. The sites have a heavy canopy over them, so satellite reception isn't possible, but you do pick up about 12 over the air channels. Picked up Verizon 4g with good signal. The town of St. Michaels is within driving distance, with a lot of good restaurants and shops. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice quiet campground on the Eastern Shore of Maryland - about 30 minutes from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The sites are mostly shady. There are 2 loops, one with Electricity and one without electricity. There is a lake with a nice playground and picnic area. There is also a nice creek for kayaking - best to go upstream from the lake. The creek is very shady and has a couple places with sand/gravel bar that you can get out and do some wading and splashing around. Several nice hiking trails also. A nice quiet State Park campground. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground located on the Delmarva peninsula around 25 miles from the bay bridge or 60 miles from the beaches in Delaware. We stayed here for five nights. Great campground for the outdoor lover. 20+ miles of hiking/mountain biking trails. Canoe and Kayak rentals on the 60 acre lake/Tuckahoe river. Pavilions for groups. Playgrounds for kids. There are two camping loops, one with electric and one without. We would recommend sites in the electric loop, 28,30,21 & 33. Water available in several paces along the loop. We are outdoor lovers so the local attractions for us were Adkins Arboretum, Chesapeake Environmental Center, and Pickering Creek Audubon Center. Looking for lunch? Try the Lilly Pad Cafe in Denton. Great shower/bathhouses. No problems with power or dump station. Note that this is a very wooded area so satellite and TV reception is non existent. We camped at Tuckahoe State Park in a Motorhome.
