Along the Susquehanna

Rockin’ at Rocks State Park

Rocks State Park is 855 acres of dense forest surrounding massive boulders above Deer Creek. The “King and Queen Seat” was once a ceremonial gather place for the Susquehanna Indians. The “Seat” is a 190-foot outcropping of rock with a sharp drop off. The cliff affords a view of rolling hills and farmland of Harford County. Deer Creek is popular for fishing and tubing or relaxing in the secluded glens. You can also enjoy history hikes and programs with the park staff.
