I stumbled across this park and it is gorgeous! There are many trails around some marshy areas and good access to the bay. Glad I stopped. It can be a little hard to find but keep going through the industrial park and you will see it.

Lovely little park along waters edge that is quiet, clean and dog friendly! Parking is tricky but the experience is oh, so pleasant.

There are about twenty parking spots at this park, but now you need a county beach permit to park there. Otherwise you will get a parking ticket for $50 like I did.

Nice park for the trails, end of cross island bike trail. The beach area and water were not impressive. The water looked scummy enough that it turned us off from wanting to go in. I think if you're just looking to take in the view and picnic it's nice. I read the other older reviews about the porta potties and... More

Often trips across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge are thought of just a way to get to Ocean City, MD. Decided it was such a beautiful weekend, so we searched for parks we have never visited. Picked Terrapin Park. It has great trails, for bikers, hikers and bird watchers. Stunning views of the Bay Bridge from the shore. You may think... More

Terrapin Park provides a wonderful view of the Bay Bridge and a beach area for true relaxation. Terrapin Park is one end of the Cross Island Trail as well. A good staging area for the use of the Trail. 20 minutes from Annapolis...beach access....great views. wonderful place to picnic. Jay

this trail crosses over a main road way, so if you have younger children, you may want to limit how far you go on the trail, or walk your bikes a little.

Many visitors to this area often complain about the lack of public access to the Chesapeake Bay. They have good reason, as when you think of all the thousands of miles of shoreline amongst all of its tributaries, this waterway surprisingly has a minimal amount of beaches available to the general public. Well at least Tarrapin fills that gap and... More

It was ok but we had a hard time finding it. The signs were not that good. We walked a long way and still never saw the water. The bugs were huge and on the attack.

Nature trail which winds through the marsh, around a lake, and down the beach on the Bay. Great walking or jogging path.
