5 Reasons to Visit Maryland State Parks this Fall

Who says summer is the only time to visit a Maryland state park? We think that it's just as great to visit your local state park once the weather gets crisp and the air turns cool! If you're wondering why it's worth bundling up and seeing what Maryland's state parks have to offer, well, this article is for you. 

1. The Foliage

All over the state, the trees are approaching peak color for the autumn season! If you want to be surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of trees changing color, look no further than state parks. In fact, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources even has a chart (updated weekly) that you can consult to see what the trees in every county look like and if they're ready for your Instagram photos.

2. The Camping 

Ready to get away from it all? If you're tired of the hustle and bustle of real life, it's time to escape to nature -- if only for a weekend. The best part about Maryland's state parks is that you can truly rough it in a tent, bring in your own camper, sleep easy in a cabin, or even stay in a relatively elegant forest lodge! Check out all of the options here, and don't forget the marshmallows!

3. The Wildlife

Whether you're ready to go hunting or you want to simply capture creatures in photos, Maryland's state parks are the perfect place for you! All across the state, you can see everything from foxes and bats to butterflies and snakes. And if you like to bring home your own dinner, many state parks are also designated public hunting lands

4. The History

If you're a history nut, you'll find plenty in the state parks! The Civil War took place over many areas of Maryland, and much of that history has been preserved or left behind -- everything from Harriet Tubman's Underground Railroad routes to prisoner of war camps.

5. The Self-Discovery

There's something magic about spending time in a beautiful natural spot, whether you're there just for a few hours or you're camping for days. These gorgeous areas in Maryland have been set aside to be loved and admired -- and you can really do some great introspection when you're in a place like that. Why not take advantage of this gift and head out this fall?
