Summer Fun, Day 17: Swim at Sandy Point State Park

There’s no better way to kick off summer than a fun and easy day trip to the beach.

Sandy Point State Park is located along the Northwestern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, just beyond Annapolis off of Rt. 50. The park’s beaches and picnic areas overlook the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. This is the perfect time of year ton swim at a Bay beach, as the jellyfish have not yet arrived.

The park offers swimming beaches, fishing, crabbing, boating, hiking, and wildlife viewing. The park also offers a marina store and boat rentals.

Fishing is permitted from the shoreline in designated areas and there are rock jetties near the boat launch perfect for casting a line.

The park is open 7 a.m. to sunset.

*Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, Lifeguards are not on duty, though swimming is still permitted at your own risk.

*DNR-owned beaches are open and outdoor recreational activities such as walking, jogging, running, swimming, fishing and sunbathing will be permitted, however:

  • Guidance on social distancing must be followed.
  • The prohibition on social gatherings (no more than 10 people) must be strictly followed.

Admission is $5 per person for Maryland residents and $7 per person for non-Maryland residents on weekends, and $4 for residents and $6 for non-residents on weekdays.

For more details, visit Sandy Point State Park’s website.
