Another forest area is the Coastal Plain Province, a broad and swelling landscape. Both of these and other forests are part of a statewide movement to preserve Maryland's natural beauty.

At North Point State Park, glampers can chill out on the beach, fish, or get a view of the rich waterfowl that call the area home. The park contains a historic trolley shop and scenic fountains as well.

Additional Information

The owner lives onsite and is available for questions but otherwise will rarely be seen due to a busy schedule. Upon arrival, guests will be given a walkthrough of the property, its surroundings, and its animals. Afterwards, guests will be free to roam around as they choose. Before leaving, another tour will take place to ensure that everything is clean and no personal property has been left behind.

The owner is in the process of applying for new Maryland state permits and is therefore unable to serve breakfast at this time. Guests will be responsible for preparing their own meals and will have full access to the kitchen in order to do so.
