This allows our beach goers to enjoy this park during its normal hours at their convenience.  If you are interested in renting during off-season please contact our office at 410-758-0835.

More Information

The grounds and beach are open daily from dawn to dusk.

For up to date beach information and current beach conditions, please visit the Maryland Healthy Beaches website.

Located on the Chesapeake Bay on Kent Island, Maryland, the grounds include a public swimming beach, an outdoor amphitheater, family picnic area and 1 mile trail through the surrounding woods, with views of the Bay Bridge. The beach is open sunrise to sunset daily.

The Matapeake Deli will reopen on Memorial Day weekend for the summer.  There is nothing like sitting on the veranda, having a sandwich and a cold drink overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.

Dog Beach at Matapeake Clubhouse & Public Beach 

Yes, there is a lovely spot where you may take your dog for a swim! A winding trail through the woods ends at the Dog Beach, on the sandy banks of Chesapeake Bay. Parking is located at the Matapeake Clubhouse and Public Beach lot; however, pets are not allowed at the clubhouse, its lawn, or the public beach. The pet trail begins at the fence that borders the rear of the clubhouse. Enjoy your visit and please bring along a plastic bag to clean up after your pet to ensure that this park stays open and available to dog lovers, while not posing a public health issue for the families using the public beach.
