We are camping on the Wye Loop. Make your own reservations - post to your RSVP if you want to find someone to share a tent or site with. Some of us sleep in our cars but we may have a tent you can borrow. Bring something to throw on the grill and a dish to share for dinner and snacks for the long night. Unfortunately as this is a state park there is no alcohol allowed.

These camp trips are VERY laid back. Nothing is scheduled and we decide as we go but typically we hike Saturday and Sunday. We have a group meal Saturday night and usually eat breakfast together. Please bring a dish to share.

FRIDAY: Check in, set up, explore, BIG FIRE

Saturday: Breakfast on your own or with group, hike mid-morning, BIG FIRE and group meal in the evening. QUIET HOURS 10 PM TO 7 AM.

Enjoy spectacular views of the Chesapeake Bay headwaters! Sandy beaches, marshlands and heavily wooded bluffs rising above the Northeast River. Camping, boating, and swimming are major activities. Several trails meander through the diverse landscape, revealing the great variety of plant and animal life.

On weekdays, Elk Neck charges a $3/vehicle admission fee. On weekends and holidays, it’s $3/person. Out of state residents add $5. Use of campsites and picnic pavilions at Elk Neck State Park is billed at the following nightly rates: Campsite, $26/night (not open during winter months) Campsite with electric, $31/night Campsite with water/sewer/electric, $36/night Camper cabins, $51/night Full service cabins, $51/night

I am going up Friday probably around 12 and you are welcome to caravan with me.
