Pocomoke River State Park has two developed areas: Milburn Landing and Shad Landing. Both sit on the Pocomoke River, on opposite sides of the Pocomoke Cypress Swamp. The entire area is rather glorious, a nature-lover’s paradise. Water access shouldn’t necessarily be the thing that determines which of the two areas is your destination. In fact, you can paddle from one to the other (though established water trails are more abundant at Shad Landing. So Shad is arguably the better spot if your primary interest is boating.) But if it’s hiking you’re after, Milburn allows slightly quicker forest access to almost 15,000 acres of wooded forest. The Nature Conservancy owns the adjacent Nassawango Creek Preserve, which runs 9,300 acres and hosts, among other must-see wildlife, some 20 species of neotropical migratory birds.
