Patuxent River Park comprises more than 6,000 acres of environmentally sensitive parkland along the eastern edge of Prince George’s County. Aside from the stunning natural area, the camping setup is a dream. There are six campsites total, but that number is misleading. Each site can accommodate more than two dozen campers. Because there is so much space in the airfield, you can enjoy recreational activities in the area near your campsite. Your fee gives you access to a game room with basketballs, volleyballs, soccer balls, and horseshoes. There are 8 miles of trails for hikers and equestrians, as well as on-site museums. Additionally, the park supplies water and firewood.
