Proposal for a Floating Dock

at Lower Marlboro Wharf

There is an increased interest in providing safe kayak and canoe access along the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County. 

Lower Marlboro wharf, at the end of Lower Marlboro Road, has the resources that make a new kayak/canoe launch feasible.

UPDATE: November 27, 2018: The materials for the Floating Dock are scheduled for delivery any day now. 

Here are the locations to put in a kayak or canoe (or other non-motorized boats): 

Patuxent River

Chesapeake Bay
  • Public Beach in North Beach 
  • Fishing Creek in Chesapeake Beach
  • Flag Ponds Nature Park (1/2 mile haul to the beach)
