Martinak State Park sits along the Choptank River, the largest of the Eastern Shore tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. The park supports a wide variety of plant and animal life. Hardwood and pine forests surround the park, which offers modern campsites and boating access. Martinak is a haven for bird watchers, who must choose to walk the park's abundant hiking trails or paddle the waterways via canoe. Overnight accommodations include camping, camper cabins and a full rental cabin. A boat launch and a pier allow easy accessibility to the waterways. Anglers will find excellent fishing, featuring bass, perch, sunfish and catfish. Enjoy several playgrounds or visit the Nature Center or enjoy the view at the amphitheater, while you're there!
