Kings Landing Park
Along the shore of the Patuxent River, Kings Landing Park has a history stretching back to Captain John Smith's exploration and earlier. Once an active farm and later a YMCA camp, it is now managed by Calvert County's Natural Resources Division. Kayakers, canoeists, and fishermen enjoy Kings Landing's access to the river, nearby creeks, and marshes. 

Wayside exhibits, funded by the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network, help visitors learn about the significance of the river and the abundant wildlife that depend on it. Hiking trails are open and beckon you and your dog for a jaunt. Download a trail map

Bring your kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard and explore the marshes of the Patuxent River.

The equestrian facility includes a 150 x 300 riding ring, judge's stand, restrooms, and water hydrants. It is suggested that equine enthusiasts call ahead to check on availability.

Our picnic pavilions and Tom Wisner Hall are perfect for group picnics, family reunions, wedding receptions and other events. These facilities require advance reservations and appropriate fees apply. Download a slide show of Wisner Hall (5.0 MB).

Interested in overnight camping, the park offers primitive camping for youth groups.

Education programs are offered throughout the year, sponsored by the Calvert Nature Society. Check out the calendar of events.
