Swallow Falls State Park is EPIC! There are 4 amazing waterfalls in a very kid friendly hike that is less than 2 miles long!
It is an incredible jewel in the Maryland State Park system. If you are only going to visit one area of the park, you MUST visit the Orange Grove area.
Located in Boonsboro, MD, this is VERY popular. The beach fills to capacity pretty much every holiday and weekend during the summer months.
Clearly, the lake and beach areas are the main draw here. It’s really quite gorgeous and the sand is a great quality.
There are fields and meadows for kids to run, there are tons of short trails families would love, and great places to play in the water of the Gunpowder River.
