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

A short hike down to the bay, with numerous other trails to investigate if you wish, this was a great afternoon! Nice water and sand with the challenge to find shark teeth buried in the sand, the grand children had a blast! Be prepared for an uphill cLimb after the day. Bathroom facilities are available. Pack a lunch and make... More

My kids and I go here often. It's cheap and the walk to the beach isn't bad at all. I'm not in the best of shape and even I can do it :) The sharks teeth are plentiful...make sure you bring a ziploc baggie to bring them home in. It is pet friendly, so bring your dog along. The kids... More

My family which includes 2 kids loves Flag Ponds. We go there all year weather permitting. Its affordable for in-state or out-of- state visitors but if you plan to go often, get the annual pass. Even at the busiest times we've never had parking issues. There is handicap parking available as well. Stop in at the visitors center and check... More

Beautiful, well-maintained park in Calvert County Maryland. Minimal entrance fee. Nature trails for hiking. Nice un-crowded beach. Half mile walk to beach was very pleasant. Was very happy with the bathrooms near the beach. The shower was very nice as we were able to wash all our chairs and toys off before heading back out.

Flag Ponds is a hidden gem if you like to hike down to the beach and look for shells and artifacts. It was not crowded when we went in November. The hiking paths were well maintained. We had a nice peaceful afternoon hiking and combing the beach. Unfortunately we did not find any sharks teeth or bones, but all in... More
