Wonderful area. - I ride my horse often in the wonderful park and I am thankful for your efforts. Today I noticed that the bad board in the iron bridge has rotted all the way through creating a significant hazard for equestrians...
great for the kids - At the beach the calm and warm water is a delight for younger kids (and their tired parents) and an excellent fishing pier is right next door; relatively clean bathrooms are located at each location and their is a lovely shaded picnic area next to the pier area with tables and grills.
Old Marine - Sandy Point is the best State Park In Maryland, The park personal are geart, they will help you with any thing. You can not ask for a better state park. This park is like paradise in haven, This is the only good thing that the Governor of Maryland has ever done. If you have never been to sandy point, you have miss a geart place to be.
our favorite campgrount only 1 1/2 hr dr - We have been going for 4 yrs now. GREAT place. Would be nice to have water and 50 amp. But that would get more people who just want to have fun not enjoy the trails and fishing, crabbing, birds red foxes and other wild life. The staff is good they replace any first timmers who need to leave. The hosts try very hard to help with what ever is needed. will I go again you bet already sign up for two more 9 day trips this yr. and signed up for 3 more 9 day trips in 2013 with 3 more trips planed but could not reseve yet. as for dogs area they have enough. You do not what a park just for dogs. Also not every dog plays well with others. Come enjoy a day or two weeks. Better y-fi would be a help.
Wonderful Experience - Just returned from our camping trip to Assateague, had such a wonderful time. The horses and the beaches are beautiful, such an amazing experience to see wild ponies roaming through your campsite in the mornings. The beach is clean and secluded, amazing, one of my new favorite places! Already planning our return for next year.
uninhabited Island Camping - My Girl friend and I went to Janes Island to canoe and camp. The views and wildlife were great. The bugs were overwhelming, little nats by the thousands would swarm all over you when the wind was now blowing. They have their own May Flys there that are also terrible not to mentions the ticks were really bad too. I picked a half dozen or more off my girlfriend and myself. The crabbing was great, they were all to small to keep but just wait until the middle of June. You can use hand lines right off of the wharf or piers. I tried every bait under the sun to catch a fish and failed. But if you want to catch crabs with your fishing pole just use GULP minnows that you can find at Walmart. Just about every cast a crab was on my line. If the crab were bigger I would have put a few in a crab trap instead of chicken.
great family vacation site - A perfect day at Herrington Manor is spending the day swimming and boating on the lake, broken up by a walk with a naturalist, and a lakeside family cookout at sunset with the requisite dessert of some mores.
For those who like to fish for wild trout...this is the place to be Savage River Outfitters is a full line Orvis Dealer and Fly Shop with vacation rentals located on the Savage River in Western Maryland. Call ahead to book a half or full day wade trip or fly fishing instructions.
