Black Hill Visitor Center was added to the 1,843-acre park to provide insight about the wildlife and natural resources found at Black Hill Regional Park. Videos and nature exhibits inform you about the region’s natural history. Naturalist guided programs are available for kids and adults. However, more adult programs are led here since this park is located further away from highly populated areas and schools. Many of the programs focus on aquatic life found on Little Seneca Lake. Fishing on the pier, canoeing, and riding the Osprey pontoon boat are among favorite activities. A wide variety of other activities are available such as hiking, bike riding, picnicking, playing on playgrounds and volleyball courts, exercising on a fitness course or just taking in the spectacular views of lake.

At Black Hill Lake, naturalist-guides take small groups on Pontoon Boat tours to examine the aquatic life and enjoy breathtaking sunsets. You may search for birds, bats and beaver along the lake or take a workshop to learn how to fish, canoe or kayak. Child-friendly kayaks offer youngsters the stability they need while learning to kayak with ease.

Black Hill Visitor Center is located at Black Hill Regional Park, 20926 Lake Ridge Dr., Boyds, MD 20841 (301) 916-0220.
