          Fort Howard, Maryland

          There is currently no water supply, and there are no restrooms available on Hart-Miller Island due to repairs and an unanticipated supply shortage. The current anticipated return of these amenities is July 2022.

          Hart-Miller Island is a 1,100-acre island located in Baltimore County on the Chesapeake Bay near the mouth of Middle River and is a must see for those who want to get away from it all. The island was originally part of a peninsula that extended from Edgemere, Maryland. The two islands, Hart and Miller, were joined by the construction of a dike in 1981, and until 2009, the impoundment was filled with dredge material from Baltimore Harbor, eventually creating Hart-Miller island. In recent years, Hart-Miller Island has become a haven for boaters in the northern Chesapeake Bay, providing the public opportunities to encounter many different species of plants, insects and wildlife along with other fun recreational activities.

          The western shore of the island offers safe mooring, wading and access to a 3,000-foot sandy beach. Hart-Miller Island State Park also includes Hawk Cove and Pleasure Island, which also provide recreational opportunities and camping. The park is well-known for its abundant migrating bird populations.

          Camping is available from May 1-September 30.

          Hart-Miller Island State Park offers 22 campsites available on a first come, first serve basis:

          6 sites in the main camping area on Hart-Miller Island 11 sites at Hawk Cove 5 sites on Pleasure Island All sites have a picnic table, lantern post and campfire grill.

          Campfires may only be built in the fire rings provided.​​
