Tuckahoe Creek, a quiet country stream bordered for most of its length by wooded marshlands, runs through the length of the park. A 60-acre lake offers boating and fishing. The park has 20 miles of scenic hiking, biking and equestrian trails, flat water canoeing, hunting, picnicking, as well as a recycled tire playground for children.
Tuckahoe State Park boasts excellent hiking, biking and equestrian opportunities. Trails that wander through the park include the Tuckahoe Valley Trail, a self-guided Natural Trail, the Physical Fitness Trail and the Lake Trail. The Maryland Park Service does not rent horses, and only provides the trails as a means of recreation.
Picnicking and Pavilions
The park has two picnic areas, each offering shaded sites with picnic tables, charcoal grills, playground equipment and horseshoe pits.
The Lake and Cherry Lane Area Pavilions, with a capacity of 80 persons, can be rented through the statewide reservation system.
Camping and Cabins
The park offers a family camping area with 54 sites, 33 with electric hookups, and a central bathhouse with showers and toilet facilities. Each site is equipped with a camping pad, picnic table and fire ring. No water hook-ups are available, but potable water is conveniently located around each loop. A dump station is available for trailer use. Pets are allowed in the campground, but must remain on a leash at all times.
Fishing and Boating
The park has a 60-acre lake with fishing and boating opportunities on 20 acres of open water. The remaining acres are flooded woodland.
A launch ramp is available for boaters. Gasoline motor use is prohibited.
Canoeing at Tuckahoe is a popular activity on both the lake and the creek because of the park's abundant wildlife. It is common for visitors to enjoy watching bald eagles, ospreys and great blue herons. Beavers and muskrats have surprised visitors by swimming past their canoes. Tuckahoe is full of pockets of secluded beauty, some only accessible by canoe.
