A nice place to take a leisurely walk.

Although there is nothing especially that stands out at this park, it has a nice path that leads to a small beach and an impressive view of the Chesapeake Bay. I come here several times a year for the walk. The walk to and from the beach is a little over 3 miles if I remember correctly but I wish it was more circuitous so you wouldn't to retrace the same path. Still, it's a pleasant walk.
So much fun to look for sharks teeth

We've been here many times There are a few beaches you can stop at and enjoy the beach and look for fossils There is a lovely hike to the beach from the parking lot It's about Two miles each way (There are other points where you can park and the walk to the beach is a shorter one We happen to enjoy the hike . It is mostly shaded . We have built sifters for our fossil hunting. We usually bring a picnic and spend about 2-3 hours there We have found many sharks teeth of different sizes.

It's about 1.8 miles walked to Calvert cliffs. It was an easy walk and scenic. We love watching the beautiful nature and wild life. We particularly love the wetland. My boyfriend said it looked like a bayou. The Calvert Cliffs' beach is small, but it's just relaxing to sit there and watch the bay. We didn't find any shark teeth or fossils. We enjoyed watching people there hunting for them.
Fun Side Trip

It was nice but the beach was small and crowded. You could not go into the cliff area because of erosion problems.
Good place if you like to hike

I wasn't impressed with the beach and the shark tooth hunting. We didn't find any teeth and no one else seemed to either. It is a two mile hike to the beach and of course 2 miles back and although they have some benches along the way, its still tough if you aren't in good shape. We did see some cool turtles in the swamp though. If you want to hunt for shark's teeth, there are better places near by.
