There are two distinct areas: Millburn Landing, on the north side of the Pocomoke River on Route 364, and Shad Landing, on the south side of the river off Route 113. It is a 25-minute drive between the two areas of Pocomoke River State Park.This popular park also offers camping, camper cabins, boat launch, boat rentals, flat water canoeing, picnic areas, playgrounds, picnic shelters, and a swimming pool.
