Sandy Point State Park
Photo Tour   
Sandy Point State Park has some of the best views of the middle Chesapeake Bay from Maryland's western shore. The 786 acre park provides a variety of recreational opportunities such as swimming, fishing, crabbing, boating, and windsurfing. The park's location on the eastern flyway also makes it a popular location to view woodland, marsh, and migratory waterfowl. Visit Sandy Point's beaches and picnic areas and look out at the Bay Bridge, linking the western shore with Kent Island, as well as the many ships and boats plying the estuary.
Hours: From April to October, the park is open from 6:00am to sunset. From May to October, park officials enable active boating and fishing 24 hours a day.

From October to April, the hours are 8:30am to 5:00pm.

Fees: An entry fee is charged year-round, although the amount varies depending upon season and day of the week. Check the website below for detailed information. Senior citizens (age 62 and older) and children in car seats are free.
