Trip Advisor Back to Nature

If you are looking for a moderate hiking experience with natural surroundings, experience Elk Neck State Park. The park has accommodations for all levels of hiking/site seeing(fall leaves are at a peak) and the hike to the light house is a gem. You cannot go wrong with a day at Elk Neck State Park.

Trip Advisor Great weekend visit in the fall

Just returned from staying in the mini cabin Warbler #4. It was more remote and quieter and located just around from the corner from more crowded loop with electricity filled with families. Our cabin held a set of narrow bunk beds and double bed with 2 electrical outlets and a unit that provides either heat or AC. The cabin was in very good shape although the floor had some sticky residue and as to be expected, a few stink bugs and moths. The bathroom was about a 3 minute walk to the next loop so plan accordingly. Bathroom was very clean with hot showers for the early birds and later in the afternoon. We took advantage of hiking to the lighthouse which was a great 1 mile hike. The kids also really enjoyed the ranger-led talks at the nature center: on Saturday they got to dissect owl vomit and Sunday watch snakes and turtles get fed. We will definitely return during the quieter seasons.

Trip Advisor Great trip even in the rain.

We stayed in Rustic Cabin #8 Maple. It's set just a little bit back from the other cabins and has a more private fire pit area. It's a short walk to the waters edge and we brought coffee and bagels down to enjoy the early morning bird activity. Expect to see bald eagles land in the trees right by your cabin! We recommend the Beaver Marsh hike.We got a bit lost at the end but followed the sandy beach back to where we started. The bathrooms are spotless & offer scorching hot showers! Too hot for me, but nice to have the option on chilly days.

Trip Advisor Great Park & Lighthouse
Oct 09, 2014 by: ErnTrekker from PA
Visited the park & lighthouse for the first time this past weekend. Walked the scenic trail from the parking area south to Turkey Point. The trail appears to be about .75 mile long with some elevation changes along the way. The lighthouse grounds are very nice with spectacular views of the Bay & River. There were 2 port-a-potties on the grounds - just in case;) The only disappointment was that the lighthouse itself was closed (slightly after Noon on Saturday) as no one was available on site (the gift shop was closed as well). It was still worth the walk to see the views! I would like to return & walk to the top of the light on the next visit....
