New Beach Permit Program for Queen Anne’s County
Posted on April 11, 2014 by Local News

Queen Anne’s County is starting a Beach Permit program for the use of parks with beaches or shoreline. The annual permit for Maryland residents is $35, for out of state is $60. Daily permits for Maryland residents are $5, and for out of state are $10. The permits, which will hang from the rear view mirror, will be required and must be displayed beginning May 12, 2014. Proceeds collected from this program will be used to provide additional services needed to keep the parks clean and safe.

The parks requiring Beach Permits include Matapeake Public Beach and Dog Beach, Terrapin Nature Area and Ferry Point Park. Ferry Point Park is scheduled to reopen July 4th, 2014 after the completion of a Shoreline Enhancement project.

Beach permits must be displayed by all vehicles in the parking lots of these designated parks and along posted roads adjacent to the parks.

Beach permits are available now for purchase at the following vendors:

  • Kent Island Depot
  • L & B Marine
  • Western Tire and Auto (Stevensville)
  • Blue Heron Golf Course
  • Chesapeake Outdoors
  • The Grooming and Pet Shop
