The park’s one mile sandy beach provides plenty of room for enjoying a variety of beach activities.
A portion of South Beach is protected with lifeguards from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, weekends and holidays, Memorial Day to Labor Day.
A bathhouse is located near the beach and provides park users with restroom and showering facilities. Snack food, beach and picnic supplies are also available at the South Beach area of the park.
Maryland State Parks are “Trash Free”. Please practice Leave No Trace principles and take your trash with you when you leave.
Special Notes: Small sun shades are permitted in the main beach area of the park; this includes the beach and grassy areas. Sun shades must be open-sided and must not exceed 10 foot square in size. For the safety of our guests, shade canopies cannot have closed sides (including tarps or side shades), staff must be able to see into the structure, and they must be set up behind the lifeguard stands. During the late summer months there may be jellyfish.
