Situated on a peninsula between the Chesapeake Bay and the Elk River, Elk Neck State Park contains a wealth of beauty (though no elk), encapsulated within a real diversity in topography, including beaches, marshes, and forests. Despite this, even on busy weekends, there’s almost always a spot to stay, so you can feel comfortable making a last-minute decision to go and get a walk-in site. Elk Neck remains a perfect place for families wishing to camp, drawing folks from Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Delaware. Expect crowds and not much privacy. Still, it’s difficult to spend a few days at Elk Neck and not have a pleasant experience. Fishing, birding, hiking, boating, and swimming are popular activities.
