Come explore the water trails at Point Lookout State Park (PLSP) in Southern Maryland without crossing the Bay Bridge!
Recreational opportunities abound on this picturesque peninsula formed by the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River. Swimming, fishing, boating and camping are just a few of the activities to be enjoyed in this beautiful bay setting. PLSP's peaceful surroundings belie its history as the location of a prison camp which imprisoned as many as 52,264 Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. A museum on site recounts this vivid history. Also, you may want to read about the park's mysterious ghosts in the Fall 2001 edition of The Natural Resource magazine. The park has also been listed as having one of the coast's top 10 haunted lighthouses in Coastal Living Magazine's online features.
The campsite is booked from Thursday evening through Sunday morning in the dog-friendly Hoffman's camp loop with partial shade. Site number to be emailed to attendees prior to trip. Can only stay Friday night or Friday and Saturday nights? That is fine! Come at your convenience!
$10/person/night payable to Amy Pickwick upon arrival. You will be on your own for all food, drink, ice, and firewood.
We will be flatwater (touring) kayaking on Friday and Saturday. Friday night, is an optional jaunt to nearby St. Mary's for a free, outdoor, Summer concert. Saturday night, is an optional trip to Solomons Island (the famous Tiki Bar is located here).
Camping reserved for kayakers first. However, if you just want to come to enjoy camping with the group, please email the Organizer, Amy Pickwick, to check on availability to non-kayakers before booking.
This trip will be easy going / leisurely. Kayak experience recommended, however if you would like to paddle and need some light instruction, please email Amy to find out about availability. You can rent and transport kayaks from Annapolis Canoe & Kayak, but call ahead to make reservations.
Electricity in the nice bath houses. Water available on site. Easy walking distance to the fishing pier. Quick drive or bike ride to the lighthouse and Civil War buildings.
