51 Comments on “Elk Neck State Park”

  1. Sharaon Evans says:

    Need information about you campsite cabin availability and rate for August

    • Hi Sharaon,

      You can check availability and make reservations through the Maryland Recreation department at this website:

    • Bryan Remick says:

      My family was thinking of tent camping, possibly late Aug. this year at Elk NECK. Are you open now, and should we make reservations soon? We would need two or three spots together…Bryan

      • Hi Bryan,

        Maryland State Parks (including Elk Neck State Park) are closed through May 28th, but are scheduled to reopen by June 1. I recommend making a reservation for your late August camping trip. Elk Neck State Park will be open then, unless government officials decided to close it because of concerns for our safety.

  2. Freddie M Kyle says:

    When I was little boy I went there with my family. Had a great time.have not been back for a long time love to come back and see what I am missing thank you.

  3. Freddie M Kyle says:

    Thanks so much for making my childhood so much fun love to go camping in the great out doors love the smell of camp fire.

  4. Wendy Lilley says:

    Do you have permanent rv spots? I have a 32 foot with a 2 foot bump out. We love the park and the beach and my husband is a hunter this would be perfect for year round.

  5. Jean Buhite says:

    Are there campsites with sewage hookups?

  6. Shannon Peacock says:

    I don’t see any prices for tent sites or small cabins or anything

    • HI Shannon,
      CampsitePhotos.com provides the pictures and a little more information about the campgrounds listed on our site. To check availability and make a reservations (and pricing) you can visit the Maryland Dept of Natural Resources page by clicking HERE.

  7. Angela Tiffany says:

    Hello:-) trying to figure out what is the maximum number of people allowed in the cabins?

    • Hi Angela,

      CampsitePhotos.com is not affiliated with any of the campgrounds we have listed. We provide the campsite photos and a little more info about the campground.
      I recommend you contact the park directly to inquire about how many people will fit in a cabin: 410-287-5333​. You can also click HERE to go to the Elk Neck State Park page on our site and click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ green button to check availability on cabins. This link will direct you to our reservation partner and they should have info on how many people can stay in a cabin.

  8. Hello: Do you allow boats in the campsites or do they need to park the boats in another area? We are looking at the Northeast Loop sites.

    • Hi Pam, It’d be best to check with Elk Neck State Park directly. Typically the parks allow two vehicles per site and that would include your car/truck and trailer (with boat). You can call Elk Neck State Park to check at:410-287-5333​

  9. Hi,I went to Elk Neck State Park
    When I was young alot of times it made me become a great person there is so much to do there fishing ,boat rentals , building fires it was the best camping trips I was ever on

  10. Prices here as well at other MD State Parks have sky rocketed! Unless I read things wrong (and I hope I did), Northeast Loop and Chester Loop (full service) are now charging $75/Day and $45/Day for loops with no services. Ridiculous!!

  11. doneitall says:

    Correction to my previous post…the reservation site now shows the total cost of your stay when you choose a site, not the per/day cost. Therefore, when I was reserving for a 2 night stay, I was seeing the total cost as opposed to the per night cost the site used to show.

    NO doubling of prices…Sorry for my confusion.


  12. with all the confusion would be simply easier they just put the darn price for a campsite somewhere on any of your 19 websites. It shouldn’t be a big secret for people trying to visit your state park what the camping per night fees. according to what I read from your site it’s $50 a night or 5125 depending on how I like how you read the comments which is the only place you can actually find a real price for a campsite per night at your Campground. Very disappointed so I have to keep calling your office daily. When you can simply post the price online

    • Hi M. Duffy,
      CampsitePhotos.com is not associated with the campgrounds/parks listed on our site. We provide the campsite photos and a little more info about the campground (including a link to make reservations). Your best bet to check pricing (which it sounds like you already did) is to contact the Maryland State Parks reservation line at 888-432-2267, or try check in line here: https://parkreservations.maryland.gov

  13. I want to bring my 3 year old camping on labor day weekend. We were thinking of going with another family that also has a 3 year old. Is there any places to swim?

  14. mason barish says:

    Is there really rock climbing in the campsite ?

  15. rachel Novak says:

    coming friday – sunday what time are check IN check OUT requirements?

  16. John Clarke says:

    Are the camping sites open all year? I am thinking of coming with a tent Saturday 11/3 for 2 days.

  17. Rick Brewer says:

    Do you offer sites that you don’t have to reserve?

  18. Hi! are you able to hike out to the lighthouse from any of the sites? Are there playgrounds? Which sites are closest to them?

    • Hi Anna,
      The Turkey Point Lighthouse trail is about a 2.5 mile drive from the campground! The trail to the lighthouse (from the trailhead parking lot) is then about 1/2 mile.

  19. Are quiet generators allowed?

  20. Suzy Thompson says:

    What is the shower situation here?

  21. Bob Beird says:

    Stayed at site 184 this past weekend. Unfortunately I did not realize this tent site was situated at the entrance to an RV loop. Really enjoyed the roaring sound of a generator and the bright flood lights all night long (yes, all night…the “quiet time” was not observed/enforced). I love the campground but will definitely be more careful on site selection in the future.

  22. What does partial availability on a campsite mean?

  23. Is site 138 big enough for two cars and two tents? Is it allowed?

    • Hi Blue,
      It looks like you can fit two tents to right of table in tent pad area, and two smaller cars/suvs side by side in the paved parking area. The site is designated to have up to 2 vehicles and 6 people.

  24. Ranger Alexander Brown says:

    Elk Neck State Park does not offer off-season camping. Please update this site to remove the statement about first-come first-serve option. Thank you.

  25. We have camping booking for 10 families in June. How far are camp sites for each other we have 201 to 205

    • Hi Amit,
      You can click on the ‘Campground Map’ button to get a general idea, but I’d say that campsite #201 is about 100-150 feet away from campsite #205.

  26. Irvin W Webb says:


    • Hi Irvin,
      I did a quick on the State Park’s website and it did not indicate where there may be wheelchair fishing friendly locations. I suggest giving the office at Elk Neck State Park a call at 410-287-5333.

  27. Sam Paules says:

    Regarding the NE Loop, I suggest you add site #14 to recommended sites because the right side of the vehicle has complete foliage screen from the next site.
