  • Decided to take the family for some fun at the bay. Cost me $88 dollars for 4 kids and 2 adults because I dont live in Calvert county. Took all the fun out of it for me. I will never go back I am someone who thinks it abit silly to charge people to enjoy the outdoors. I would have spent the money at a local restaurant. Now I doubt I will ever go back to that town.
  • What everyone is saying about this place being ridiculously overpriced is completely true. It's $16 per adult and $9 per child. There are no bathrooms and don't expect much of a beach; only a few feet of sand stands between the treeline/cliff to the waters. It's also situated on a very small strip of beach before either ends gets cut off by the cliffs. When the place reaches past 20 or so people it can seem extremely crowded. With that said, most people come here for hunting fossils. Avoid the Summer time to avoid the fees. It's good huntings but not worth the exorbitant entrance fee.
  • Seriously, 18 dollars for non-resident for what? I mean we did not pay anything, because we came in March. So if you want to find small shark teeth, good timing. But like 5 minutes walking to the small "beach" with no lifeguards, dirty water (not park fault) and ?? Exactly nothing else... Even 8 dollars for residents is ridiculous. Small parking lot. Really nothing to see there...
  • $18 per person for non-residents. Get out of here!!! Well I guess I'm going to have to go else where.
  • I really enjoy walking the boardwalk to the beach area. Parking available, there's a charge for out of town/state residents. No life guards.
