St. Inigoes State Forest is comprised of 938 acres located on a peninsula between St. Mary’s River and Smith Creek bordering the Potomac River. There are 324 acres of woodland, 524 acres of agricultural land and six residential dwellings on the property. The St. Inigoes State Forest property (locally known as Kitts Point) is the most ancient Jesuit establishment in the United States, and probably the oldest in the world that remained in continuous possession. ​This property is a trash free state forest.
