Aberdeen Proving Ground (“APG”) is an army base next to Aberdeen, in Maryland. It was established in 1917 shortly after the U.S. had entered World War I. It is a census-designated place and was an alternative to Sandy Hook Proving Ground, which the military decided was too small for the larger weapons testing being conducted. Today it is a major employer in Harford County and an important military installation. The nearby city of Aberdeen started as a farming community in 1720, developing into a village around 1800. Aberdeen was incorporated as a town in 1892 and again as a city in 1992. It is also the home of a long list of professional athletes, a handful of notable politicians, and Frank Zappa, who lived there as a youth while his father worked at APG.
Book an RV in Harford County and you will have the right vehicle for creating a perfect vacation and the memories to go with it. There are a number of towns that should be interesting for visitors. Elkton was once a popular location for eloping couples to marry, earning the name “Gretna Green of the East”. Annapolis served as the capital city of the United States from 1783 to 1784. Bethesda means “house of mercy” in Aramaic (from the words “beth hesda”) and “house of kindness” in Hebrew (from the words “beit chesed”). Gaithersburg is divided into two sections by Interstate 270; the older, original section is east of the interstate and contains many historical buildings, especially in the central business district “Olde Town”. Frederick is the center of a historical crossroads, going east-west from the Chesapeake Bay across the Appalachian Mountains and also north-south. Your APG travel trailer rental is your introduction to the history and culture that makes Maryland a unique place.
Susquehanna State Park is a historical recreational area with opportunities to hike, mountain bike, and fish in the Susquehanna River. Anglers can try catching pike, perch, and bass either from shore or from a boat.

The park is open to camping and picnicking for those seeking a quieter, more relaxed adventure.
Bynum Run Conservation Area is an undeveloped park with a pavilion and picnic areas, a trail for hiking, and access to fishing in a pond or from a pier. Visitors also have the opportunity to kayak and observe the native wildlife. Keep your APG RV trailer rental nearby and you will have somewhere to store your catch of the day until it is time to introduce it to the frying pan.
Stoney Demonstration State Forest is an educational resource for instructing students about forest and wildlife habitat management practices and silviculture. It has rustic but clearly marked trails leading through forest areas that can be used for hiking and biking.

Baseball aficionados can take in a minor league game; the local team has MLB connections and plays out of the Ripken Stadium, part of a larger complex that hosts concerts, soccer matches, and other events. There are several good golf courses in the area where visitors can squeeze in a few rounds, or you can engage in a number of water-based activities at the nearby Chesapeake Bay.
