Bald Eagle Island Campsite in Point of Rocks

At least a couple pairs of trees allow a camping hammock. Large trees, so bring long tree huggers.

Campsite is close to the C&O train line, which runs after midnight -- the train will wake you. Bring earplugs.

Easy water access for kayaks and fishing.

Access from C&O is steep - a dirt path just north of the campsite is the easier option for rolling bikes into the campsite.
