Located along the gorgeous Chesapeake Bay, Sandy Point State Park is a 786 acre (318 hectares) park that has been one of the state's natural gems since 1952. The scenic water views make it an ideal place for a picnic or leisurely stroll. The soft sandy beaches are packed on hot summer days and make for a great swimming spot, complete with lifeguards. Fishing and crabbing are also allowed from the park's shoreline, however licenses are required. The marina offers 22 launching ramps for day-use that are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
