How is the river flow for kayaking? Can I put in and paddle upstream and return to my original put in spot or do I need to go with the flow and have a pick up vehicle down river?
The river is flowing at about 3,300 cubic feet per second and should be good for kayaking. Not sure about paddling upstream though. You can click HERE for current river flow info. I recommend calling the park office to see what they think: 410-734-9035
I just received an email saying my campsite (62) is “Walk-In Only”. How far away do I have to park my car from my site? I thought all of them were drive up.
Campsite #62 has parking for two vehicles and up to 6 people can stay in the site (designated for tents). There is a short walk from your vehicles to the tent pad/table area . . . maybe about 50 feet.
We plan to reserve a camp site to stay for the night. Can we just drive our car to the camp and sleep in the car?
Yes you can. Remember the park/campground closes October 31. You may also want to check availability (unless you already have a reservation) as the weekends are a bit busy.
