This is a slightly difficult trail but worth the exercise. There is a creepy cemetery by the beach at the end of the trail.

Camped a weekend here and it was a wonderful experience, even though it rained the whole time. Staff at the gate was very nice and helpful. Rangers waved as they drove by once in a while to make sure everything was OK. There were only 3 cabins occupied during our stay, so the park was empty. We took a stroll to the water-it has some nice views. Didn't have a chance to hike to the south as it was raining pretty bad. The cabin was clean, had a heater and AC, outside light, inside lights,electrical. The fire pit was OK. Wood is available for purchase close by; honor system. Overall we had a good experience camping at Smallwood. Perhaps next time the weather is better! One note: this is not a big park, so perhaps it's not a good place for a long hike, but for a weekend getaway with some conveniences-it's perfect!
