Beautiful park with a circular trail around the lake. You can complete the trail in 1 - 1hr and 20 minutes depending on your pace and age. Exceptional colors during the fall that reflects on the water which creates great exposure for photography lovers. Unlike Virginia state parks, Seneca trails and hiking paths are less crowded and easy to navigate. It was a Saturday and the temperature hit to 70 degrees in a balmy November and the traffic was very light. Good picnic grounds and clean restrooms in the facility.

This was our first visit to Seneca Creek State Park in Maryland
and the Cloppers Lake Boat Center on Lake Cloppers.
We walked down to a floating pier and took photos of the lake.
Picnicking, boat rentals, trails and a tire playground are just some of its recreational opportunities. Restrooms are available. (The dam was built in 1975 for recreation and flood control)

My family spent a Saturday at this park recently and we were pleasantly surprised to find very affordable kayak, canoe and paddle boat rentals. I think I paid $9 for one kayak for an hour. They also had a pontoon boat tours for $2 per person. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon. Tip, grab an ice cream when you're done and sit on the bench overlooking the lake! Nice trails, dog-friendly, clean and shady picnic tables and a good playground available too.

I've been enjoying this park for years. During spring and summer the park has a boat rental center, pontoon boat tours for two dollars per person on weekends (reservations), kids fishing clinics and more. There is a number of trails but I would imagine the most popular one circles the lake. The lake is man made and there are lots of turtles, birds, trees, a few old beaver dens and people trying their luck fishing. My favorite activity is a what I call the Bi-lake-a-thon. Get a kayak and paddle around the circumference of the entire lake, inlets and all in 1 hr or less and then hike or run around the lake in one hour or less. Current cost $9 for the hour rental of the kayak and parking is free immediately upon turning into the park, $3 if you drive to the boat center. Give it a try. There is bike riding, educational areas, pavilions for gatherings, a handicap accessible fishing deck, gift shop, playground, lots of picnic &bbq areas and frisbee golf course. I'm sure I left lots out. I just like that it's peaceful and an easy escape.

Visited the park for seeing the Winter lights and loved the experience. Kids enjoyed the drive through the park. Though we cannot get out of the car for the entire drive, kids can either use sun roof or stand in the front to enjoy the surrounding lights. Speed limit within the park is 20 and since everyone stops to take snaps from within the car, be prepared to expect delays and slow drives.

Drive starts at 6 after the park closure and there is a long queue to get inside. You can beat the crowd by being there around opening time. Lights Winter lights will be open till 12/31 and there is a entry fee per car of $12 (Mon-Thu) and $15 (Fri - Sun)
