Tuckahoe State Park RV & Campground Guide


Tuckahoe State Park covers 3,949 acres on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in eastern Maryland. The Adkins Arboretum, a nature preserve and garden that protects over 600 native plant species, occupies 500 acres of the park. Most of the park surrounds the upper portions of Tuckahoe Creek. Early settlers found this portion of the Maryland eastern shore to be unproductive. An example of the area is 60-acre Tuckahoe Lake, where only 20 acres are open, and the rest is flooded woodland. The closest community is Queen Anne, MD, which is three miles away, and the nearest metropolitan area is Baltimore, MD, which sits 51 miles away.
