CONSTRUCTION UPDATE - July 3, 2014

Construction of park improvements to the Ranger Julie Schweikert Nature Center and Park Store remains on schedule with the majority of the project to be completed in time for the Fourth of July weekend. Camper Registration and Concessions are now located in the 'newly renovated' Park Store near the Marina Area. Come and enjoy a relaxing time in the 'new Dining Room'. Bring a book, a tablet or lunch. Snacks, bottled drinks and ice cream novelties are available for sale.

Other areas of the park continue to be under final construction. The Camper Check-In Parking Lot can be used, but still has some final work to be completed. The Trailer Storage Lot is also available for limited use with final construction to the entrance a week or so away. The NEW Marina Fish Cleaning Station and NEW Boat Rental Building are still not complete, sorry. The Pathway to the Park Store/Nature Center from the Camper Check-In Lot has been completed. Boat Rentals are open, just check in at the Park Store.

We apologize for any inconvenience the construction may cause our park patrons. If you have any questions, please call the park office at 410-968-1565, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Feel free to email the Park Manager also at: DennisE.Smith@maryland.gov Also please continue to check this website for updates.
