Horrible! Better off getting the food at a restaurant - same price and you know it is handled more carefully! The "crafts" were junk, and the "entertainment" was not entertaining. WORST OF ALL was the outrageous admission charge for 2 - $45 with parking, admission to Sandy Point, and an additional admission to the festival. So disappointing!

This was our landlocked Grandsons' first time ever to a "beach". I was impressed with their chair rentals as well as other rentals and beach toy options to buy. The layout of the park was beautiful. The only negative I have is that there was a lot of litter. We need to teach our youngsters to keep American clean, by... More

Worst type of beach I ever went to!! I went there with my wife. It was part of our honeymoon/getaway trip. Beach was bad. While we were waking saw an employee pumping waste out of bathrooms and dumping it where picnic area located at!! Very disgusting! ! Plus you have to pay per person to get into park!! Plus litter...

My family like to come here. We came once in June on a weekday, nice & quiet. The bathroom is clean. And today on a Sunday, we knew it is going to be busy, but being at a crowded beach is fine, the worst part is going to the bathroom, it smells, water & toilet papers on the floor....it is... More

This park and beach are cleaner than the last visit about 10 years ago. No, it's not clear water, and the beach is a bit peebly, as is the first few feet of water. After that it's nice and sandy, and calm. It has enough wave action for the under 10 years old crowd but more adventurous kids may ask... More

First off, this is not one of the nicer beaches in Maryland. It is dirty, and the facilities are a bit run down. We visited later in the afternoon, however, and it was less crowded than usual, pleasant, and rewarded us with a marvelous view of the bridge as the sun began to set. A plus for location, C minus...

We planned to visit beach last weekend. We have researched several places. Finally in consideration of the weather and our young child, we ended up going here instead of two other places with much higher rating. To be honest, we have been here four years ago. Back then, we paid mostly $30 for the entrance fee and only stayed 5... More

Minutes from Annapolis, Sandy Point State Park delivers sand, sun, picnic areas, and a beautiful scenic view of the Bay Bridge. Great for those who want to visit the beach for the day, without going all the way to Ocean City.

I live relatively close by so I just went to go in the boats there. The beach is OK if you go to a quiet part of it. We went to get a rental and the prices were OK still. Problem is that they ask you to launch across the park from where you actually go to get the rental.... More

Huge beach (more dirt than sand, but lots of room) with fresh water and a great view of the bridge. Get there early because they close the entrance once it's full. Decent bath house. Parking lot is much closer to the beach than we expected.
