Smallwood State Park takes its name from General William Smallwood, a native born Charles Countian. He was the highest ranked Marylander who served in the American Revolutionary War. His house, called Smallwood's Retreat, has been restored and is open to visitors seasonally. The 628 acre park offers a marina, boat launching ramps, a picnic area, camping area, pavilions, a recycled tire playground and nature trails. On occasion, there are craft demonstrations, military exhibitions and other special events.

ALERT: The Smallwood State Park boat ramps will be closed on June 15th for the General Smallwood Triathlon. Alternative launch sites can be found at Mattingly Park, Marshall Hall and Mallows Bay.
