Best park on the bay near Annapolis

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... read more

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.

Positive: This is the closest to Baltimore and Washington Chesapeake Bay beach. Nice sand,water is warmer than in more open Ocean City. Half a mile of clean nice sand. Clean and convenient shower rooms. Plenty of parking. Negative: A lot of jelly fish in season. VERY crowded on weekends with a lot of ethnic smelly cooking and picnicking in the... More

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
