Discover Point Lookout State Park, MD


The northeastern seaboard of the U.S. is known for its vibrant history and beautiful natural scenery. Point Lookout State Park is the perfect combination of both of those things. It's also convenient to major urban centers, located under two hours from Washington, D.C., two hours from Baltimore, and one hour from Chesapeake Beach.

Steeped in history, Point Lookout State Park used to be a major prison for holding Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. Before that, this park was also a major site throughout the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. Museums and reenactments commemorate this area’s rich yet violent history.

Point Lookout State Park campers have the luxury of enjoying a multitude of water activities, including swimming, fishing, and boating. Whether it's nature or history that fascinates you, this park has both. Make sure to book an RV in St. Mary’s County and see what Maryland has in store for you.

Getting Outdoors

Did you bring your hunting gear and license? Point Lookout has set aside 240 acres of land for hunting. Feel free to also use the three blind sites available for hunting waterfowl. Make sure to read up on the most up-to-date laws and regulations for hunters in the state of Maryland. See what animals are in season during your motorhome camping trip. In the right time of year, you just might catch yourself a coyote, rabbit, turkey, duck, or deer, to name a few.

Don’t forget to pack your hiking boots. There are a few trails worth exploring in the park. The Periwinkle Point Trail is self-guided and loops you around the Civil War Museum. There are also three water trails that take you down to the point of the peninsula and up to Chesapeake Bay.

Learn a bit of history at the National Park Service Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Site. It’s a long title and an amazing story. A museum in the park used to be an old hospital during the Civil War where employees had a reputation for guiding runaway slaves to freedom. Make sure to check out this historical monument to civil rights while camping at Point Lookout.

Exploring the Area

No Point Lookout State Park camping experience is complete without exploring the surrounding attractions. St. Mary’s City, MD is the next town north of Scotland. Originally the state’s first capital, St. Mary’s City is full of history. English settlers landed here back in the mid 1600s and began establishing the colony known today as St. Mary’s City. Discover early American churches and marvel at the architecture, check out the local museums, or have dinner at one of the tasty restaurants in town. Explore the area and learn all about one of the nation’s earliest European settlements.

Fascinated by American history? Head further north to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Visit all the iconic national monuments that commemorate some of America’s greatest leaders. See amazing sites known across the world, like the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. If there's anything in American history that you're interested in, there's a Smithsonian Museum to teach you about it. Visit the Museum of Natural History, the National Museum of the American Indian, National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the National Museum of Air and Space.

For a bit of local fun, check out Lexington Park, just a short 25-minute drive away. Discover the local flavor of Lexington Park at a gourmet restaurant or a pancake shack. Your palate will be pleased to know there are many fun restaurants in the area to choose from. A far as attractions go, whether you’re bringing the family out to the movies, to see a play, or to the Naval Museum, Lexington Park is a nice day trip away from the RV rental.

On your way out of the peninsula, you'll find plenty of gas stations at which you can fill up your tank or stock up on road trip goodies.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
