The park is always clean and we seem to luck up, finding a table each time we go. There are plenty of public grills, although on busy days, they will become scarce by noon. If walking trails are of your interest, some of these offer a serene way to get away from the busy water area. There are a few... More

We took the blue trail from the parking area and followed it along the creek for a little over a mile. The creek is wide and clear, studded with boulders. It is a peaceful, scenic hike with low difficulty. About a mile out you hit a crossing stream and can either turn back on the blue trail or continue on... More

We were looking to get outside for a hike with the dogs and this location fit our needs. It was Thanksgiving weekend so a little busy but still a very pleasant visit. Trails were well marked and the historic town of Jerusalem was interesting to walk around. A nice escape from hours of traveling.

Went because gunpowder falls was listed as the sixth must see waterfall in Maryland to be told by the guy in the office that there isn't really a waterfall it is just where to rivers meet but they have a really nice recently renovated covered bridge.. it was nice , but that's not what we went to see.

We spent the afternoon at the Hammerman section of the state park, which includes quite a number of picnic pavillions and a wonderful section of beach along the river. I would highly recommend this puting.

A beautiful, serene setting deep in the forest of Gun Powder State Park. Kilagore Falls offers a great swimming hole for all ages. Younger ones can explore and wade on the rocks and the older kids are jumping off the rocks into the deeper areas. You can swim right up to the falls and stand in or right behind it.... More

Mother nature gets 5 stars, but her human caretakers get zero! I've never seen this much litter in a state-operated park. It's everywhere: Bottles, cans, diapers, abandoned rafts, clothing, coolers, camping gear, charcoal bricks. The entire stretch from Belair Road to the Pot Rocks was bad, but the Pot Rocks and its adjoining overlook were especially bad. This place is... More

If you want a nice place to hike, this is the place. Even if you want to take a baby stroller, there is a flat area for you to use as well.

Great park to bring your dog! The river is perfect for dogs to play in and the trails are fairly well kept up. Not too crowded and only 20 minutes from the city. I've never been to the beach side so I can't vouge for it.

Guy was insane. And he is farmer John. He assulted me and my kids tryed to run his vehicle into ours and cursed us out . He also did something really sexually inappropriate in front of my kids. Can't even say it. Police said he had to have exposed himself during that performance to be arrested. Just stay away from... More
