Established as recently as 1964, Crofton, Maryland is a newly-built residential town that’s anchored around a golf course. It was named after a small township in England’s Cumberland County and although initially a gated community, it’s now open to all.
Crofton has consistently been ranked as one of the “100 Best Places to Live” in the United States and is just as popular with RV enthusiasts. Its leafy streets and proximity to recreational reserves and the big cities of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. make it the ideal place to rent an RV and explore.

The refuge is home to white-tailed deer and beavers, as well as a myriad of bird species that include great blue herons and migratory neotropical birds.
