Love this place! If weather/time permits, take a stroll down to the beach (1/2 mile) where you can play in the bay or one of the many small pools. Or, if you aren't a sand/water person, take a hike on one of the many trails or watch birds from the blinds. There is even a small picnic area by the... More

The only downfall about this place is the 1/2 mile walk from the parking areas to the beach. That is the only bad thing I have to say. I went this past Saturday and arrived around 2pm. There was a wait to get into the parking lot, about 30-40 mins because parking was full. So suggestion #1 is to get... More

We've been there mainly for the beach. Even at 4pm in a hot day it was a waiting line of 30 minutes to enter the park because they have a policy of 10 cars out and 10 cars in. Pretty hedonistic for staff... Parking is at half mile from beach which seems fine. Not really if you have to carry... More

Flag Ponds is a little gem of a state park! It's located in Lusby, Md., less than 30 minutes away from Solomon's Island. The park features everything from freshwater ponds to a sandy beach to hiking trails to shark's teeth and other fossils. The visitor's center has interesting wildlife exhibits. There are some picnic tables and grills near the visitor's... More

Nice little state park in the Calvert cliffs area. Trails through the transition between the cliffs to salt marshes and the beach were very nice (easy walking), as was the beach. We hunted for shells and fossils, finding several small shark's teeth. Also saw some horseshoe crabs, including one that was trapped on its back that we flipped over and... More

Once we arrived to the water it was a little nice, The distance from the parking to the beach is way too long of a walk with two hills when you have beach items(umbrellas, chairs, coolers bags), there should be a shuttle from the lot to the entrance of the beach. no staff on duty for emergencies. Did not like... More
