Our family visited the Pocomoke River State Park in Maryland, Saturday, July 26th. We were visiting the Eastern Shore of Maryland for a family wedding, and wanted to explore the local environment. Since we’ve previously been to chincoteague island (also in the immediate area of Pocomoke, MD) we went inland.
The park is located within the 15,000 acres of the Pocomoke State Forest which contains two distinct environments — a stand of loblolly pine and cypress swamp. It is this border between upland forest and swamp that encourages a great range of plant and animal life in a small area. The river itself boasts over fifty species of fish.
Amenities at the park include: campsites, boat launch, boat rentals, outdoor swimming pool, trading post, snack bar and nature center.
