    Favorite thing: Off season, the entrance booths are not manned and the fees are on the honor system. We pulled up to the booth here and read the instructions, put our money in an envelope and depositied it in the box.

    In the offseason, the charge is $3 per vehicle; out-of-state residents $4 per vehicle. Day use service charges are valid for park use from 6 a.m. to sunset. (All Season Passes, Disability Passes and Golden Age Passes are valid during this time period.)

    Fondest memory: Day Use Service Charges - Beginning January 1, 2004 Point Lookout will have new day use service charges as follows: weekends and holidays (May-September) $5 per person; out-of-state residents $6 per person.

    Notice: On weekends and holidays (May-September) all people departing the park during per person charging times will be required to pay to re-enter unless they have their hand stamped at one of three stations within the park prior to departing the park. Re-entry is subject to available parking.

    Favorite thing: This park is just down the road from the marina where we have our boat, and we pass it each time we go out to the Chesapeake in the boat.

    This park's peaceful surroundings belie its history as the location of a prison camp which imprisoned as many as 52,264 Confederate soldiers during the Civil War.

    A park map is available at park headquarters, the camp office, camp store, and the Civil War Museum /Marshland Nature Center.

    You can have read about the park's mysterious ghosts in the Fall 2001 edition of The Natural Resources. magazine

    Fondest memory: Features:
    Boat launch, boat rental, camp fire programs, camp sites, cabins, camp store, dump station, fishing, flat water canoeing, hiking trails, hunting, historic interest, hook ups, pet trail, picnic area, playground, swimming, Civil War Museum/Marshland Nature Center, pavilion and cottage.
