Description
If your heart is longing for some beachside fun, plan a visit to the Point Lookout State Park Beach! This peaceful coastal retreat was formerly the home of a prison internment center where 52,264 Confederate soldiers were housed during the Civil War. Today, this pawsome beach, which rests on a peninsula directly between Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, is one of the most pawpular spots to visit in all of Maryland. 


If outdoor adventure was what you were looking for, you will find it at Point Lookout State Park Beach, for sure! Best of all, your fave pooch can join you on the shore and in the surf in both the northern and southern portions of this totally pawrific beach haven! But Maryland gives pooches without a leash a ruff time, so take care to make sure your favorite furry friend is on his lead at all times.


There is a fee to spend the day at Point Lookout State Park Beach. The cost to obtain a daily pass changes seasonally. From October through April and on weekends, residents may enjoy the beach for a cost of $3, and non-residents $5. In peak season, the weekends of May through September cost $5 for residents, and $7 for those residing elsewhere. To visit the beach on weekdays at any time of year, the cost is $3 for residents and $5 for all others. 

The list of furrific things to do at Point Lookout State Park Beach could go on forever! Whether it's camping, hiking, fishing, water sports, or more, you'll find it at this pawsome spot! You can rent boats and pick up other camping and cooking essentials at the on-site camp store. There are even picnic areas with barbecues where you can cook up a feast for Fido and the whole fam to enjoy. Don't forget to pack some bottled water and cleanup bags in your beach essentials kit! There are both bathrooms and showers for pawblic use. 

Looking for a great place for a getaway for Fido and the whole fam? Plan a trip to Point Lookout State Park Beach! It's a puptastic spot for a vacation!
