Camping at Point Lookout State Park
Location: Point Lookout State Park
A few weeks ago my brother, dad, and I went camping at Point Lookout State Park in southern Maryland. The Park is located on a lake named Lake Conoy, which connects to the Potomac and on the other side is the Chesapeake Bay. This was my second time at the park and from experience if you want to fish - don't go in the Lake. I would advise going into the Potomac or fishing off the bridge on the Chesapeake Bay side. The only fish in the lake are small spot, croaker, and baby red drum with a few others. Its not very fun fishing in my opinion, but other than that the park is great. The lake is a perfect place to go kayaking and explore, plus there are tons of blue herrings, osprey and best of all a big bald eagle. My brother and I kayaked almost the whole time; there are cool little coves and creeks to explore. The camp sites themselves are nice; we stayed on a secluded site directly on the water to launch our kayaks. Camp sites are spread out nicely, and there is a huge dock that provides pretty good crabbing all day long. Overall Point Lookout State Park is a nice place to go relax for a weekend and have a good time.
