Go take the kids for an outing: Several trails, bring your dog on a leash (in our case an explorative cat who walks on a leash). Fishing, swimming, grilling, relaxation, nature, history. Overall GREAT for leasure.

Not a bad mix of wetland and paved roads, lots of bugs along the path as well. Get there early, if it’s a busy day the entrance may close due to capacity. Overall wonderful hike trail for the kiddos

We really enjoy all there trails. Keep in mind you definitely want tick spray. These are relatively easy trails. However the first trail coming in to the first left, that trail can be muddy. We love that there are short and long trails.

Do not go on this trail without bug spray! Other than that, this is a great trail where you can see wildlife (rabbits, deer), beautiful marshland, the bay, some history (there used to be an amusement park here), and get some adventure (prepare for some mud). There’s a $3 charge to get into the park (for anyone like me who doesn’t carry cash.) Loved it, will be back. With bug spray.

It was a nice trail. There was a section along the Marsh Trail that was flooded. it is only about ankle deep so you can walk through it. Also the ticks are out so use tick spray. The beach area was cool and refreshing after the hike.

The portion of the park we hiked had a ton of very muddy areas and some sections that were flooded out. Overall we had fun and the dogs loved it. We will be back for sure to try the other trails.

very easy, flat, nice, and pretty trail. The marshy area near the beginning is filled with wonderful creatures; frogs, snakes, many different birds, and bird watchers can be found. The marshy area and several parts through the woods become quite muddy with rain, and often take days to dry, so be prepared if you go with recent rain.

Beautiful day and fairly well marked trails. Some wildlife including birds and a few snakes. Marshy areas were a little soft but very manageable and enjoyable!

Marsh indeed. Be prepared for muddy sections. This park is A great reminder of how close to the Chesapeake bay we live . We did about 3 miles around the park. Saw mostly bird watchers and dog walkers but generally didn’t run into many. Nice. I’d definitely do it again.

A nice late October hike on very clean trails and park. A fairly easy hike, almost a walk on most of the trails but that not always bad. If you want a strenuous hike, better look elsewhere but I will be back

The trail was generally well maintained and the views are great. It’s nearly entirely under cover which is great for a hot day. Our dog had a lot of fun playing on the small beach along the way (where dogs are allowed to be off leash). Really nice hike.

Had a wonderful time with my family. Very muddy though and check yourself for ticks! Lots of ticks this time of year! A lot to see. Very quiet relaxing walk.
