Rocky Point Beach and Park

One of the most beloved beaches in Baltimore County, Rocky Point is a gorgeous 300-foot shoreline of soft sand along the upper Chesapeake Bay. Set in a 375-acre park, the beach offers breathtaking views of the bay, Hart-Miller Islands and Craighill Light, as well as an abundance of majestic wildlife. Eighteen picnic areas ensure everyone has a spot to snack, while a volleyball court, sailing center, fishing pier, boat ramps and playgrounds provide endless entertainment.
