How about a family picnic on the old Chesapeake Bay? Beautiful sites here! Great place for a family reunion! Go swimming during the summer months! It's very clean! Don't miss out!

There was a five dollar per person charge, plenty of parking, no trash cans, which mean you must take your trash with you ( thanks governor omally ) and the restrooms reeked of urine. Won't be returning.

The beach, and surrounding park/picnic areas, are well maintained and the water has Life Guards. There is plenty of parking spread out around the park as well.

Ok place to go if you don't have time to go all the way to the beach. The shore is gravely and it gets very crowded in the summer.

Lovely place! The beach was way bigger than we thought it would be! Definitely a hidden gemstone in Annapolis!

Beautiful and peaceful area to lay on the beach and relax. It was interesting to see the bay bridge from a different point of view.

Great and only boat ramps to launch your boat near Annapolis. There are many ramps and you rarely have to wait. In the summer there are hefty charges to enter the park. Launching your boat is included. This park is right on the Chesapeake Bay adjacent to the Bay Bridge so when you launch your boat you are right in... More

Liked the size of the park. Great scenery. Set up well for barbecues and large groups. Disliked bathrooms at main beach, pretty gross on the weekends.
