Gilbert Run Park is located 8 miles east of La Plata on Route 6. Within this scenic wooded parkland are hiking and nature trails, picnic areas (grills and tables), picnic pavilions, playground areas, and fishing piers. The main attraction is a 60 acre fresh water lake which affords fishing, pedal boating, rowboating and canoeing. Fishermen are able to catch bass, bluegill, trout and catfish. A boat ramp is also provided for your convenience (electric motors only). Also available to the public are fishing supplies, fishing licenses and concessions.
Gilbert Run Park is opened from March to November with seasonal hours of operation. For further information, call the park office at 301-932-1083.
