Nice local park with some beach on the bay. Has a visitors center and picnic pavilion. Has a lot of history dating back to the War of 1812. Go see the Ridgely house ruins.

Really enjoyed the park. Couple of trails to pick from. We started at the beach and then drove to do the black marsh trail. Saw tons of birds, pileated woodpeckers to! Turtles, frogs, snakes. all trails are marked and well cleared. Saw an Eagle too!
