Franklin Point State Park is a beautiful 477 acre peninsula nestled among the Chesapeake Bay, Deep Creek and Flag Pond, in scenic southern Anne Arundel County. The Maryland Park Service has partnered with community members represented by the West/Rhode Riverkeeper staff to improve access to this natural waterfront property.

Franklin Point features a variety of marsh, forest and field areas, with sand shoreline overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. Passive enjoyment, including wildlife viewing and hiking, are ideal activities at this site. At this time parking is limited and restricted to the lot off Dent Road.

The soft launch is temporarily closed due to unsafe launch conditions. Currently, vehicle access through the gate is not permitted. Please check back at a later time for future updates.​
