This is a great local option for a beach. It costs $5 per car to get in (changes per season) but you have so many options for things to do. The beach area is very large, lots of sand, great for a picnic, and sunning, there is a roped off area for swimming, and you can fish. If you have... More

The Lights on the Bay Christmas spectacular is a must see. If you approach from the Eastern shore the lights are breathtaking. It cost $15 per car to enter the park. Discounts of $2 are available at some places.

As the site for this years MD Seafood Fest, we finally got a chance to visit this beach that we've passed over a hundred times on the Bay Bridge while driving to/from the coastal beaches for the summer. We were there the 2nd weekend in September so it's still beach weather but surprisingly there weren't that many people on the... More

Honestly haven't been in years, but I live in the area and it gets busy during the summer months. Not the best beach in MD, but for an inexpensive day trip it'll do. I'd rather visit OC or any of the DE Beaches

We decided to check this park out on the way to St Michaels, MD. Fortunately we got an off-season rate of $ 3.00 since we entered in October. There was a great view of the bridge, and a wide sandy beach. We walked in the sand and enjoyed the peace and quiet, but the food concession had already closed for... More

The kids had a blast, the view is awesome, the walk in the woods was great, but a larger group would be better.

There's a big beach, places to swim, places to fish, places to lay out in the sun. It's right by the Bay Bridge, which is both convenient and can be annoying, due to the traffic coming by.

Sandy Point State Park, affordable place to go and small beach, Chesapeake salt water. This is a very nice attraction, to spent with family, couples or go solo. Before you visit please, check Calendar because sometimes they closed to clean the waters. Great area to swimming. Small beach but fun.
