The people at the entrance were so friendly! They answered all of my questions and were so kind! It’s $5 per person on the weekends and $4 per person on the weekdays. Definitely less busy on the weekdays, they told me on the weekends the park closes for a couple hours because it gets so full. The rangers were helpful and you can really tell that they care about the park and it’s customers! Highly recommend this State Park to everyone!

This is a little beach, so don’t expect the large waves where you can surf on, but you can expect the beautiful scenery. You have a great view of the ocean and Bay Bridge. This is an excellent place to have a picnic because there is a grill for cooking. Bathrooms could be a bit better, but overall, this is a good park in Maryland. This park is perfect for a weekend break.

As someone who has continuously gone here since my childhood, I can say this is one of the best parks in Maryland. The staff is nice there, the fee is pretty regular with other state parks in MD. The beach is pretty big and it stays clean the majority of the time. The biggest thing I do here is fish. Fishing is great here being that it's open 24 hours. Night time fishing is available from the beach, which can land you some pretty big fish. There's also a pier near the boat launch which is suitable for fishing and crabbing. Not to mention there's a small store that sells bait and tackle for the anglers venturing out in Sandy point. The bathrooms are probably the only negative, but with a park with such heavy traffic of people it's understandable. Overall, I recommend this place to everyone, especially for fishing and crabbing.

hello just wanted to say that i have been here twice and it was good. but i went to sandy point beach for the 4 of July 2018 and they was not allowing anyone in but the workers. There was two cops and they was really rude. I know that you are not letting anyone in but there is a way to talk to people. There was a group of African young ladies there and they have been there sense 9 am OK, at that time it was 12:45 pm and the cops was really rude. Yelling move your cars and the cars was parked out of the street on the side of the road and there was Spanish group there and the one cop in the SUV yelled at them why are they just standing around get in you cars and go. They said that they was not opening the park until 3 to 4 pm, that's fine but at least they could have said that in a nicer way then yelling. We all had money and was willing to pay like every one else. it's a shame that people don't know how to talk to each other any more. I will not be back, I will go where the beach is cleaner and the water is clearer and the people that work that are nicer to the customers. may have to pay a little more but i know that they will apprentice the business more.

Great day trip if you live in the area! I paid $8.00 for 2 people on a weekday. The beach has been cleaned up quite a bit and the water was good. Not crowded plenty of parking that is close to the beach and no extra fee.
