Baltimore County Beaches and Admission Rates

On those hot steamy Maryland summer days you don't need to drive all the way to the ocean. Head to the cool waters of Rocky Point or Oregon Ridge Beach. They're just minutes away.

Since 1969, the Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks has owned and operated this 375-acre waterfront park. Located at the mouth of Back and Middle Rivers, Rocky Point Park boasts expansive views of the Chesapeake Bay, Hart-Miller Island, and Craighill Light.

The park features a 300' beach, a 20' x 30' beach front tent, a large and small pavilion, seven shaded picnic groves, fishing pier, two boat ramps, and a bathhouse with first aid station. The Baltimore County Sailing Center is also located at Rocky Point, and lessons are offered for individuals or groups.

Oregon Ridge Beach

Located in the scenic thousand-acre Oregon Ridge park, the beach area borders a spring-fed lake, and offers both shallow and deep water for swimming. Amenities at this beach include a concession stand, bathhouse, pavilion, sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits and a playground area. There is also a room available to rent for small group gatherings. Note that during the early and late beach season on those weekdays when Baltimore County Schools are in session, the beach will be closed for swimming.
