“nice for a quick beach jaunt but...”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The sand will stain anything it comes in contact with, so be sure to wear clothing and shoes you don't care to ruin. It has a great view of the Bay Bridge and there is a food stand and volleyball courts. You can buy a towel if you forget yours. It's ok for a quick stroll down the way from Baltimore if you don't want to drive all the way to Ocean City, 3 hours away.

“A hidden treasure 10 miles from colonial Annapolis!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The area is vast and well-kept! The beach is lovely with lots of grassy area bordering the sand (with grills & picnic tables)! You can swim, fish, boat or commune with mother-nature! Mid week is the least crowded. Go!

“A bit pricey at $7 per person, but beautiful views of the Bay”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

At $7 per person you had better plan to spend the entire day there! The beach is clean and spacious, but I imagine as it gets hotter, it will fill up fast. You can reserve ahead for a private cabana, and in the summer, i would highly recommend that.

“Beautiful Chesapeake Bay Bridge Views”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Sandy Point State Park is an excellent place to stop for a visit. The beach is lovely with a great view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. There is a playground and bathrooms conveniently located near the beach. There are also multiple picnic areas set away from the sand with picnic tables. I have enjoyed every visit I have made to Sandy Point.

“View of Bay Bridge is so worth it”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I actually first spotted it from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.. Didn't actually expect a beach in this area.. SO planned a visit very soon... Coming from western Maryland shore (eg. DC area), you don't have to pay the toll on the bridge, coz its the last exit before hitting it.. so be careful not to miss the exit or you will be on your way to the eastern shores of Maryland- which is very pretty as well.
The beach hand nice sand.. the view of the bridge from the water was great... Since this is a not an ocean beach- the water was pretty calm for an easy swim..
The bayside offered boating/fishing opportunities.. I was pleasantly surprised by this state park.. A great family day trip from DC area.
State of Maryland residents get a discount on the entry fee.
