Chapel Point State Park

7 Chapel Point State Park, Port Tobacco

Serenity is at your fingertips at this undeveloped wildland just minutes from D.C. Chapel Point is famous for its excellent fishing and hunting, but reserve one of the park’s paddle-up campsites for a one-of-a-kind stay. Campsites are primitive and only accessible by boat, so pack your “yak” wisely and spend your nights counting the stars.

Spring Cove Marina

8 Spring Cove Marina, Solomons Island

Dock here and slip into island living. Welcoming Spring Cove is in the heart of Solomons, but it’s tempting to while away the day at Spring Cove’s riverside pool and Wheelhouse Bar & Grill. Get an annual slip and make Solomons your harbor-home away from home.

Cove Point Lighthouse
