Codorus State Park
Codorus State Park is a perfect example of how York County is a convenient, accessible destination for outdoor recreation or a weekend away to reconnect with nature. Just an hour north of Baltimore and thirty minutes from both York and Gettysburg, this 3,500 acre park lets you get away without getting too isolated.
Enjoy over 19 miles of trails throughout the rolling hills of southern York County, as well as Lake Marburg, a 1,275 acre lake with 26 miles of shoreline. As a rest stop for migrating waterfowl and shorebirds, it's a birdwatcher's paradise, as well as a popular spot for anglers, with warmwater fishing and trout in Codorus Creek. Sail boats, motor boats, and scuba divers also enjoy the beautiful lake.
Picnicking, swimming in the pool, and disc golf are all popular activities for the whole family, and there are also educational programs throughout the year if you're interested in learning more about the local environment, ecology, or history.
Complete with spots for tent or RV camping, as well as yurts and cabins for rent, you can find the right accommodations for your comfort and experience level. Don't forget, the city of Hanover only minutes away, so you can easily resupply or visit a laundromat during longer getaways, or explore the rich history and thriving downtown of the Snack Food Capital of the World.
