This state park campground has much to recommend it: well-maintained and heavily wooded sites situated at a respectable distance from each other, scenic hiking and boating trails, boat rentals, a disc golf course, an associated arboretum, and a number of amenities generally unavailable at Maryland state parks, including trash receptacles at each site, private showers, a well-supplied firewood shed that operates on an 'honor system' basis, and soap in the restrooms. Unfortunately, these positives are undermined by a near-total lack of security after 11 p.m.: there is no gate or guard station to limit or control access to the campgrounds, no camp host at all in the non-electric loop, and no after-hours patrols. During our recent visit, this lack of security resulted in a most dangerous and unpleasant situation: a group of campers engaged in profane, angry, loud, drunken and seemingly violent conversation and argumentation throughout the night, played music at high volume until 5 a.m., and spent several late-night hours in the campground woods chopping down trees and acting in a manner that made sleep impossible for virtually all of those in the campground loop (although several attempts were made to contact the natural resources police, the spotty nature of cell phone service foiled these attempts). Unless and until the deficiencies in security are remedied, we cannot recommend this campground.

Tuckahoe State Park is located on Maryland's Eastern Shore about 35 miles East of the Bay Bridge. The park has 51 sites, divided into 2 loops. The electric loop has 33 sites and the non-electric loop has the rest. I stayed in the electric loop. The sites are not huge, but they are big enough to set up the camper with awning. Each site has a fire ring, picnic table and lantern post. Most of the sites are far enough apart to allow a decent amount of privacy. The park also has a large play ground, a nice sized pavilion and 20 miles of marked trails for hiking. There is also a 60 acre lake for fishing or boating. Canoes and kayaks can be rented at the park. Over all, this is a really nice park. Since it's only about an hour and a half from Baltimore, this will likely become one of the parks that we use for last minute camping trips.
