Boating
The park has a 60-acre lake with fishing and boating opportunities on 20 acres of open water. The remaining acres are flooded woodland. A launch ramp is available for boaters. Gasoline motor use is prohibited. Canoeing at Tuckahoe is a popular activity on both the lake and the creek because of the park's abundant wildlife. It is common for visitors to enjoy watching bald eagles, ospreys and great blue herons. Beavers and muskrats have surprised visitors by swimming past their canoes. Tuckahoe is full of pockets of secluded beauty, some only accessible by canoe. Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats can be rented for use on the lake above the dam for a daily fee (April- October). Check with park personnel for current fees for canoe rentals and park guided trips.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
March 9 My Vedry Favorite Campground by TimK
I discovered Tuckahoe in 1977, and it became my favorite campground for several reasons:'1) Proximity -- close, but far enough away; 2) Rural -- in the country, but central to many, many places; 3) Large, well-tended sites spaced far apart; 4) In the middle of great placces to visit. With few exceptions, the staff has been courteous and professional, and they run the park well. There are two camping loops: Electric, and Non-electric, and I have camped in both. With very few exceptions, all the sites are good (#9 in the non-electric loop is the worst site in the park; very uneven.) HOWEVER, Tuckahoe becomes one of the first MD parks to close in times of economic distress; a damned shame.
