About 55 minutes outside of DC you’ll find this spot. As other reviewers have stated there is a fee to enter the park, so plan to be there long enough to justify the cost. Cost was $14 for 2 out of state individuals. Being a state park, I am sure the fee’s go into maintaining this beach. This beach is... More

All I have to say is for what they charge you to get into this beach/park you would expect the up keep to be way better than what it was. I suggest no one ever uses the bathrooms at this place for you might catch something. The smell was enough to cause me to gag and there was feces on... More

Nice place, not very far from city. Can spend few hours however, remember to carry your own water and food as you won't get anything nearby. There is a fee for the park.

We went there with friends in April, during Cherry Blossom. It was very pleasant weather. You can get wet in the beach. Beach is very clean. You also have rest rooms there. Great scenery..Loved it..no shop around so you may like to take it with you.

We found this park by accident after driving back across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and wanting to stop for a photo opportunity. There is a nominal entrance fee for vehicles and plenty of parking. We walked along the beach for an amazing view of the bridge. It was early spring so none of the facilities were open, not even the... More

We were driving through and wanted to get a glimpse of the bay, so drove into the park. We walked down to the beach area and sat for a few minutes to enjoy the view and look at the bridge. Because it is still winter, nothing was open, but the day was nice and the kids enjoyed playing around on... More

Plenty of beach for swimming, flying kites, sand castles, fishing and food pavilion. Numerous picnic areas with grills, plus numerous boat ramps with a bait and tackle shop.

This is an attractive park to go hang out, walk a little and get fresh air. Not a place I would make a special visit to. Since I was visiting family in the area it was a great afternoon. Hopefully next time will be during the summer.

We spent about 35 minutes here on an evening in December. $15 a car load of people and Santa greets you at the gate with a scavenger hunt sheet and coupon for hot chocolate. All the lights were working and spread out enough to take your time and slowly drive/enjoy the sights! The park is a few minutes off the... More
