It's a nice state as long as you hold your nose around the politicians.

I can't carry my .38 there for protection, so I choose not to visit the state.  Between that and them charging you to get in to the SP's.

It is a decent state, with some nice areas like you said, if it were not for the retarded politics.

Most states charge for state park entry. I've noticed the quality of the park maintenance appears inversely proportional to the park fee. :D

I think the only state parks in central and eastern MD that charge fees is the different areas of the Patapsco Valley State Park but they all nearly have free access areas to park at along the trail systems.

Also Assateague, but you could walk over the bridge from the visitor center instead.

Assateague SP charges, and the road to the separate Assateague federal charge point that goes right by the SP is no parking too. There's a joint (or so it seems) visitor center on the mainland with no fee but presumably day use only.

In the other seceding area, Rocky Gap charges for the main parking lot sometimes, but they have plenty of other parking lots to start hiking from around the lake and away from the casino too.
