State Park Directory

Maryland’s extraordinary, diverse, and beautiful public lands were the reason the National Geographic Magazine called the state of Maryland "America in Miniature". Maryland has everything from the Appalachian Mountain and the Chesapeake Bay to marshland on the Eastern Shore to the Atlantic Ocean. The best news is that there is a state park or forest within minutes of your home. Whether you want to take a break locally or another part of the state, you can find opportunities at the click of your computer mouse.
