Park Quest 2018

ParkQuest.Homepage.JPGThe goal of Park Quest is to engage families in outdoor activities throughout the summer, and allow them to experience state parks throughout Maryland. Park Quest allows families to relax, unplug from today’s various methods of technology, and experience the bea​utiful natural and cultural resources that our public lands offer.

Park Quest offers 1,000 teams who qualify an opportunity to explore the many hidden treasures found in Maryland’s State Parks from June 1, 2018 through December 1, 2018.


Park Quest Registration is now full! Park Quest registration was conducted on a first come, first serve basis starting May 1, 2018. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you this summer!

Families who missed the registration process may still participate in Park Quest. However, without the Park Quest Passport teams will need to pay the appropriate day-use service charges at some of the participating State Parks. These families may want to consider purchasing the Maryland Park Service Annual Passport, which provides unlimited day-use access to all State Parks through December 31, 2018.

Reserve A Campsite

Consider spending the night with your team at a state park campsite, mini-cabin or full-service cabin during your quest adventures. Participants who are camping will need to pay for their overnight accommodations when staying in a Maryland State Park. State Park camping reservations can be made through this website.
