Reviews for Tuckahoe State Park

| Great local State Park

By user-5883239... on 2017-10-23.

Heavily wooded/ secluded Park. Whole Park is almost under a canopy of deciduous trees. (Absolutely our favorite place to visit in Fall.) Good natural cover between sites. Very quiet! Most sites very level, but some leveling may be needed on some sites. Great very clean bathhouses. Nice trails. Lake & big playground area. Tough to get satellite reception with all the trees. But 30+ tv options over air. Friendly Park Rangers and see them drive by often, so good oversight. Like most State Parks, no cable or sewer hookups, but 24/7 dumpout on way in/ out. Small store in season for basic basics (including ice cream!) and firewood. Added benefit is that it's adjacent to Atkins Arboretum which has many programs/ trails.

| Nice

Nice campground. Good electric hookup. No water or sewer hookup but fill/dump station very close by. Campsite was tough to back my 30' TT into but it worked out.

| Off the Grid!

By user-6240534... on 2018-07-06.

Quaint, off the grid state park. Self check in. Very quiet despite being fully booked for the holiday weekend. Electric and non-electric loops. Portable water stations in loop and dumpsters. Most sites are long enough to big rigs BUT there are 2 trees close together that make the sites different to back into. All back in sites. We stayed in site 31 and there is a little creek that runs behind it, about 100 ft back. Heavily wooden, plenty of shade, plenty of trees to put up a hammock or other hanging chairs (huggle pod etc). Bath house is large with 2 showers, 3 toilets and a make up area. Also a dishwashing station at the bathhouse (next to men’s bathroom). There’s a playground in the camping loop and there’s a lake trail from there to the lake/playground/boat rental area. (About a mile total hike from campground to lake or a 5 min Drive) At the park office, there is a Scales and Tales Aviary, past Atkins Arboretum. Look up the hours for the arboretum before going (hours are like 11-4). 20 min drive to Denton where there’s a Walmart and restaurants. Ridgely is about 10 mins away. There’s a diner and Vanderwald ice cream sold at the Ridgely Pharmacy. Spotty WiFi so Tuckahoe is really off the grid. Great getaway if you just want to relax and be with nature.

| Chesapeake Balloon Festival

By user-unknown on 2019-08-09. Stayed 2019-08-02 to 2019-08-05

Needed a place to stay for the balloon festival (don't go, wasn't worth it). Every review I read was good, so we booked spot 24 in the electric loop. Our first state campground visit. Should have called ahead to get the check in details and I could have saved myself some anguish. Once the rangers graciously got us back on track, it was easy to make the loop, find our spot and back a 33' class c into place on the first try. 30A Power was right there and the closest water spigot was about 50' away. Dump station was easily accessible on the way in our out. Campground is completely underneath tree canopy. Cell coverage was spotty at best (1 - 2 bars with Verizon). Tree canopy prevented us from using our satellite antenna and OTA antenna was spotty at best. Very nice people, nice rangers who make periodic trips around to check on things, bath house was older, but well maintained and clean. If you're here after the weekend crowd has left, bring a flashlight to walk with, it gets very dark. Campground is central to a lot of the stuff to do in the area, especially Easton and St. Michaels. If you get a chance to be in the area, book a stay, you'll enjoy the campground and the area.
