    Elk Neck used to be great, but has gone drastically down hill over the past couple of years. Also, in 2009 alcohol was outlawed in MD state parks. The park rangers act like the gustapo in enforcing this and very little noise is permitted after dark or you will be booted from the campground. Also, the overflow is just an open field with campers nearly on top of each other.
