Soak in the fresh mountain air and enjoy views of Maryland's green landscape.

Swallow Falls State Park is on the western side of Maryland, bordering West Virginia. It features the highest free-falling waterfall in the state, Muddy Creek Falls, which is 53-feet high. Head to the day-use area to stop for a picnic lunch. There are plenty of tables and grills available on a first-come, first-served basis. For larger gatherings, you may want to reserve a pavilion. These pavilions have electricity and can fit up to 70 people at a time.

Guests are also welcome to reserve a campsite at the park to extend their stay. Be prepared with a map or GPS because most of the area doesn't have reliable cell service. This is also black bear country, so be safe and never leave food out in the open or in your tent to avoid an incident. This state park is open daily from 8 am to sunset. Please note that pets are allowed in the campground but must remain on a leash at all times. You can only bring your pets to the day-use area during the off-season (right after Labor Day until the Friday before Memorial Day weekend). You can make camping reservations online, where you can choose between a short two-night stay or up to two weeks.
