Turkey Point Lighthouse

Nice leisurely walk out to lighthouse. A little hilly and lots of stones and gravel. Make sure you have your walking shoes on.

Went to Elk Neck in the middle of the week. It was very quite. We choose this campground so we could do a lot of kayaking. We drove to the harbor, it's only about 10 minutes from the campground. If you are registered camper, you do not have to pay to get into the harbor. Saw a lot of Eagles!! The people in Maryland are very friendly. The campground was clean, the bathrooms were clean. I would definitely go back. But I would bring a bike. This is a large campground with several camping loops. Happy trails to you!
Great campground, lots of trails, and full hook ups!

Camped here in August, was still able to get a full hook up site during the week. Weekends are booked and booked quickly for all sites. Love all the paved roads you can walk plus trails through the woods. There is a little bit of everything for everyone!
Mileage signage needed on Lighthouse trail

Great vistas, but a heck of a hike to get there on an incredibly hot and humid day. We would go back for sure now that we know how to prepare.
Turkey Point Lighthouse hike + beach review
Sep 03, 2014 by: MadhuDRoy from Milford, Connecticut
My rating is actually 3.5 (Good). The hike to the lighthouse wasn't too long. On the way we met elderly couples with beach chairs waiting for the sunset, middle aged couples walking their dogs, young families chasing each other, really young couples holding hands and being 'coupley' :). There were benches and little fact plaques on the way. I went with friends, some of whom are into photography and since we went in the evening, we got some some wonderful photo ops around sunset. The lighthouse and the gift shop were closed when we went, but the area was nice to relax at for a while. There was no fee for this area. The beach is small but nice and sandy. There is a children's play area. Again, when we went the store was closed. We didn't need to use them, but I noticed there were picnic tables and bathrooms there. There is a fee for entering this area. Tip: For the beach, since there is a fee, weekdays are cheaper as the fee is per car. On weekends/holidays it is per person, and higher for out of state vehicles.
