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

This place used to be great. Now it's over run with dirty people who leave trash and dirty diapers on the shore. Hard to believe in 10 years how this beautiful place has fallen off a cliff. It is sad.

Since it was 100+ degrees we were looking for some water/beach. We were told the only beach is this state park so we went. BIG mistake....the beach was dirty, dirty diapers and used tampons on the beach along with other garbage. The water is disgusting, dirty! The only good side is the views. Not worth the $24 we had to... More

This park is in a nice spot with good views of Chesapeake Bay waters and the Bay Bridge. It tends to get very crowded, especially on weekends and holidays in summer, and - perhaps due to the lax enforcement of littering rules or the poor civic sense of some visitors - the sandy beaches also accumulate a fair amount of...

The sand is fake, the water cloudy, and on a Saturday it took us about an hour in traffic just at the front gates to get in. And it costs money. Seven a person for nonresidents. But it's close to D.C., so whatever.

This beach is for everyone...Go there and chill all day, BBQ, play horse shoes, basketball, volleyball and enjoy the beach. The restrooms are not the best but there is always toilet tissue available. Be sure to take your grill and swimsuit and enjoy the day....BTW GET THERE EARLY
