Smallwood State Park takes its name from General William Smallwood, a native born Charles Countian. He was the highest ranked Marylander who served in the American Revolutionary War. His house, called Smallwood's Retreat, has been restored and is open to visitors seasonally. The 628 acre park offers a marina, boat launching ramps, a picnic area, camping area, pavilions, a recycled tire playground and nature trails. On occasion, there are craft demonstrations, military exhibitions and other special events.
For a limited time this fall/winter of 2020 into 2021, Smallwood State Park is offering a permitted firewood collection
process, providing a great opportunity for the community to pick up some easily accessible firewood. The permit
allows citizens to remove downed trees from the park in designated wood-cutting areas. In addition to getting an
economical source of winter heat for their homes, firewood cutters are also helping our state park remove the
hazard of downed trees.
In consideration of the hard times brought on by the pandemic, the permit will be free of charge. While permit is free of
charge, please feel encouraged to make a donation to the Friends of Smallwood State Park. Any donations go directly
to improving Smallwood State Park. In order to obtain a permit, members of the community can call the park office at
301-743-7613 on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays (excluding holidays) from 9am-4pm beginning 11/23/2020 to
request a permit and secure a date and time to come to the park and harvest the firewood.
On the day you are coming to the park, park staff will meet you at the Headquarters to have you sign your permit, provide
permit-holders with details of the area, and go over rules and regulations. Each permit must be requested by the individual
removing firewood from the site. Cutters must provide their own equipment and are responsible for cutting, loading, and
transporting the firewood. Permits are for personal use — commercial vendors are not permitted.
