This waterfront state park overlooks the Susquehanna River as well as Robert Island, Wood Island, Spencer Island, and Snake Island. Just down the river lies the gorgeous Chesapeake Bay. Its large green space is conveniently located right off of I-95, giving you easy access to all major attractions nearby. You can be at the Baltimore Inner Harbor, south of Susquehanna State Park, in under an hour.
This state park is remote and truly stunning, with rambling rivers running through the dense woodland, waterfalls, and fantastic hiking trails. In fact, the park has over 15 miles of marked and well-maintained trails that you can explore on foot, bike, or horseback. The boating facility on site offers direct access to the river and headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay. You’ll also find the Rock Run Historic Area within the park, which features an operational 200 year old mill and the Carter-Archer mansion. Go fishing, hunting, or check out the Steppingstone Farm Museum in your spare time.
“This is a really great place. Went with my Mom & my dog to walk the trails. We walked some of Rock Run then walked Deer Creek. Wish I knew about this place. Will definitely be one of my go to spots now. Rock Run was definitely not maintained & the path became too narrow with overgrowth for us to walk but Deer Creek was a great trail. Might try some fishing here next time. People are friendly. Bathroom at picnic area is clean. Was a great day.” – April Zimmerman, Google Review
