Discover Calvert Cliffs State Park

Calvert Cliffs State Park is situated in southern Maryland and overlooks the Chesapeake Bay. The state park is best known for its towering cliffs that have fossils hidden within them. Its beach also features numerous shark teeth from prehistoric species such as Megalodon and Carcharocles. During the early 1600s, the park was also visited by Captain John Smith, who named the impressive cliffs after his family before it was later renamed.

The area has a continental climate, with summers being hot and winters being somewhat frigid. Calvert Cliffs State Park is about an hour away from Washington, D.C., and Annapolis.

Getting Outdoors

Visitors to Calvert Cliffs State Park can do many outdoor activities while here. One option is hiking. Some trails hikers can explore are the White Trail, Red Trail, and Blue Trail. Each of these pathways will take you by unique areas, such as at the top of the cliffs or along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay. While hiking, you might also catch a glimpse of some of the thousands of fossils embedded into these impressive geological formations.

You could also go fishing. While you can cast your line in the Chesapeake Bay, visitors could also take a quick drive to Solomons to fish in the Patuxent River. A few species you’ll find swimming around in it include pickerel, bass, and bluefish. There are boat ramps and boat rentals available.

Another activity to do here is kayaking. Visitors can take their kayak out into one of the local waterways where they’ll be able to see various landscapes and unique nautical structures, such as lighthouses and oyster houses. You might also come across numerous fishing boats and crab pots during your journey.
