Came to do some Geocaching and enjoyed the sights while we walked around. It's a typical State Park but has it's own unique character.

We hiked out to the fossil beach on Thanksgiving Day. What a fabulous trail that winds through woods and marsh. The beach is tiny, but so interesting. Highly, highly recommend.

It was a warm day in November - Black Friday to be precise - and we joined many families enjoying the walk to the beach at Calvert Cliffs State Park. The trail was easy and pretty. The beach is small, but the shells were plentiful. And - to our delight- our son found a shark's tooth! Many people will be... More

Got some great fall foliage pictures, but had better luck finding fossils and shark teeth further south. Didn't notice that there were some digging tools available for use until we were leaving.

The trails are fun to walk but safety issues prevented us (and others) from going under the cliffs. Even though we couldn't collect fossils, we enjoyed our day in the park.

We've only done the red trail & the beach so the review is for those parts only. The trail out to the beach is nice and peaceful, and mostly stroller-accessible. We used a nicer umbrella stroller & had problems, but I'm sure our jogging stroller would have fared much better. The walk is pretty long on a humid day if... More

I have only been their once and I must have pick the worst day to go. It was a beautiful sunny day and nice weather with a slight breeze because when I got to the beach I did not check the tide chart and it was high tide and no beach area to look around. I have heard great comments... More

Calvert Cliffs offers you a nice afternoon of hiking with several trails to choose from. During our trip we saw three deer and an eagle leave its nest on the Orange trail. The park charges $5 per car entry fee. There is a large playing park area for kids, a small lake with fish and turtles as well as picnic... More

We were prepared for the 1.8 mile hike. We had great weather. And timed our visit to a little after low tide. Had a great time playing the water and looking for sharks teeth. Within the first 20 min found a HUGE tooth, so was a little disappointed when we didn't find much of anything else. But we did see... More

Nice hike out to a small beach just south of Cliffs. Water is perfect for swimming and wading as the waves are very small to nonexistent. Beautiful, scenic and clean. We went on a Friday at the very end of summer and there were not as many people, which made it even better! Dogs had a great time, too.
