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

Short easy hike to the beach. Easier than the hike at Calvert Cliffs and more shoreline to hunt for teeth. At the end of the boardwalk is a bin with beach toys and sifters to borrow. Walk along the water's edge to find sharks teeth. Most are tiny but the kids will love it. Look for black triangles amongst the... More

Oh my gosh, what a hidden gem! Flag Ponds Nature Park is a new favorite spot for us when we need to escape the city on a beautiful day. The name itself is a bit misleading - the attraction here is not a bunch of little ponds but instead a quiet, relatively unspoiled stretch of beach along the Bay. Upon... More

Only a half mile hike to the beach, and the beach area is big. This was our second visit here, with the first one being two years ago. Both times we found several shark's teeth and didn't really stay all that long. The bugs are bad and there were jelly fish everywhere when we were there, but still a good... More

My husband, 2-year-old son, and I visited Flag Ponds Nature Park today. Given previous reviews, we thought this would be a good day trip from our home in Montgomery County, MD. Unfortunately, it was definitely not worth the 90-minute-plus drive each way. What we were hoping for was a beach with fine, clean sand that my 2-year-old could play in,... More

We have an annual membership...and we love it! Great nature trails and the walk to the beach isn't too long. My kids are 6,8 and 15 and they always have a great time. They find atleast 20+ shark teeth each time we go! It's a great way to spend your day!

This is a great out-of-the-way beach in Calvert County. We always find lots of room and lots of shark's teeth every time we go. It is a little bit of a hike to the beach, but well worth it.
