Cool park to enjoy nature and see how the environment works. Great place to take children and teach them about the outdoors.

I visited Calvert County in 2012, on a fossil hunting trip along the western coast of Chesapeake Bay. I read in a travel guide that Calvert Cliffs State Park is a prime location for finding 100 million year old shark teeth, so I decided to give it a go. I combed the beach for a while, even digging some shallow... More

An awesome and unique place to visit! Not your typical beach, this place also offers short, easy and interesting scenic hikes along numerous trails. The beach is a half mile walk from the parking lot. Be sure to stop in at the little museum/info centre to view the various shark teeth displays so you know what to look for on... More

The beach is uncrowded, but the parking lot sometimes fills up by noon. It's a good beach for swimming, and there are relatively few rocks underfoot. Highly recommend. Less than 1 1/2 hrs from DC and Baltimore. It';s about 1/2 mi walk from the restroom to the beach.

Great little beach spot just 90 minutes from DC. Hoping the half mile walk and lack of services keeps it rugged.

Flag Ponds is a lovely spot for a quick beach break! It's about an hour from DC, straight out Pennsylvania avenue. Get there around 10 to find a good spot (it didn't get crowded but the parking lot did fill up). The water was warm, with gentle but constant waves. We could walk out quite a way and the water...

My family and friends had a great time at the Flags Pongs Nature Park beach area...that is, in between the hauls to and from the distant parking area. We had 3 adults, 5 kids, and a full days worth of food, drinks, beach toys, pop-up tent, cooler and everything else you can think to bring with us to haul on... More

We didn't have time to do the long hike to the beach at Calvert Cliffs, so we opted for this smaller park and were not disappointed. The walk is down hill to the beach, so it's obviously going to be up hill the whole way back! We were able to find a bunch of shark tooth fossils, and the beach... More

An easy walk to a nice beach. What fun it was to look for shark teeth! The ranger station displays were very interesting.

Came here to hike, and see the cliffs and was not disappointed. The walk refreshing and the trails clean. Not to buggy and even though it was an extremely humid day I enjoyed it very much, the dunes were pretty and the observation deck was also very nice. If you want to go for a nature walk, it is enjoyable... More
