Great Family reunion Spot

I went there for the first time for my wife's family reunion. I was so impressed that I have booked a spot for my own family reunion next year

We did not encounter the heavy traffic in other reviews while we arrived the park. The beach was a bit crowded but overall it was nice. However, it was difficult to find a bench that you can sit down. Most of the benches were occupied even no one was sitting on the chair. I'd recommend you to prepare your own... More

Had an awesome time at Sandy Point Park. A big surprise while attending the Maryland Seafood Festival. You get a combination of beach and you can go camping at the campground as well! Not to far from metro DC for a quick get away!

We spent yesterday at the Maryland Seafood Festival in the state park. A great event with lots of food stands, live music, cook offs, eating contests, games, vending area, and large bounse houses on the beach. $15 entry fee and $5 parking at a nearby community college with shuttle buses. Will definitively go back next year.

It's a beautiful park and a decent swimming place. However, sometimes the line to get into the park gets very long and it can be up to one hour waiting before entering the park, not to mention another half hour looking for a parking space.

First, this park is nothing spectacular, just a convenient beach and picnic grounds. The bathrooms are fairly disgusting. That's partially understandable given the demands placed on them by huge numbers of non-native clientele. But here is the real reason for the low rating: it started to rain heavily during our visit and my wife and I ducked into a completely... More

As grandparents visiting, we took the grandchildren (age 9 and 12) to Sandy Point for a day of swimming and picnicking. We found the park very good for both. It was mid-week so not extremely crowded. There were life guards on duty covering the entire beach. We carried our own food and snacks but there was a snack restaurant if... More

This is a great place to launch a boat. They have 24hour access, so at any time just drive past all the cars waiting and go through the boat gate. The property tends to pack out with lots of people, so I wouldn't expect a piece and quiet type of trip. Mexican music can be heard blasting through-out the park... More

On a hum drum Wednesday we were sitting at home bored and someone suggested going to Sandy Point so we packed the cooler and took off! We got lucky and didn't have to pay because Nana is a veteran, but it's a reasonable entry if you don't mind paying to go to the beach ($18 for 4 plus baby). It... More
