Upcoming Renovation Projects:
Pocomoke River State Park is pleased to inform you that Shad Landing will be undergoing significant renovation projects starting July 2014 and running through June 2016. We will be constructing a new boat house, adding a splash pad at the pool, and remodeling 4 bathhouses. Additionally, we will be constructing new camper cabins at Milburn Landing and Shad Landing. During this process many Shad Landing campsites will be closed or available on a first come first served basis with limited services within the loop. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes but we are sure you will enjoy using our updated facilities once finished. If you have specific questions about available service please contact the park office at 410-632-2566.
