Ridge Rider Campground is located at 31661 Green Forest Dr, Little Orleans, MD 21766 on the east side of Green Ridge State Forest

In the long, rich history of Ridge Rider Campground, we have never varied from the original intent to maintain the pristine nature of the unspoiled wilderness. If you’re Googling from above, you’ll need to refer to our Campground Map, because all you’re going to see from the satellite is forest. Yep, you’re secluded from the outside world and connected to a tight-knit community that treasures our 222-acre landmark camp as much as we do.


You’ll be welcomed as family (pets, too). You can rough it if you want or keep your moccasins clean and relax in a well-equipped cabin. We closely maintain our modern RV sites and we give you plenty of space between so you can enjoy the marvelous Upper Potomac River valley. Just a short drive from the front office and a full complement of amenities.

At the west end of the Western Maryland Rail Trail, you’ll have 27 miles of paved biking and hiking right at your feet. Immediately to the north-west of the campground is the 49,000-acre Green Ridge State Forest with many hiking trails and scenic spots, as well as developed mountain biking trails. A stocked trout stream, fifteen-mile Creek, runs right through the property. For little ones, there is a small catch-and-release fishing pond located by the main facility complete with ducks! ATV trails are available in nearby Pennsylvania’s Buchanan State Forest. Allegany County allows ATVs to be utilized on public roads under certain conditions and with a paid permit.

Mountain Home

Right. Chesapeake Bay this ain’t. Along with the majesty of the Potomac, you’ll be charmed by the mountain character of the local businesses and friendly folk. This is Paradise to the people who live around here, and it is their passion to share it with you. So, you’ll always have a guide and a helping hand and plenty of entertainment. Just a half-mile to the south, the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal offers even more hiking, biking and horseback riding. There’s a boat ramp ideal for canoeing and small watercraft.

Don’t forget, we’re only two hours from the nation’s capital and in the heart of American history. Take home more memories than you can haul at once. You’ll need to come on back.
