This park is a gem on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of DC. Once you pull into the boat launch parking lot you are greeted with the high pitched calls of ospreys. Rich in history, it's a must visit if you are in the area and love kayaking. Rentals available.

Great place to kayak. We put in at the bridge the first exit off Hwy4. Great spot. You can go down or have a great easy paddle up stream in the marsh. Looking at lily pads and duck blinds.

This campground is in Calvert County, Maryland. Fees are reasonable. There is both tent and RV camping available. This is access to the river, which has A LOT of water snakes (non-poisonous, but somewhat creepy to swim with). Very quiet and peaceful, nice to watch the boat traffic.

FREE!!!! Very nice park with boardwalks over the water and a small observation deck. Some of the trails are steep climbs. Did not have a chance to view all the trails. Small picknic area but well worth the visit for nature.
