Welcome to Chapel Point State
Chapel Point State Park is
located on the beautiful Port Tobacco River, a
tributary of the Potomac River. Chapel Point is an
undeveloped multi-use park. There is a waterfront
area that offers excellent fishing. A Maryland Bay
Sport Tidal License is required. Watch your tides
before visiting this area.
At high tide there is almost
no beach. This area has a small sand launch area
that is suitable for the launch of small john-boats,
canoes and kayaks, and personal watercraft.
Hunting is permitted in the
600 acre state park. The area provides suitable
habitat for quail, squirrels, doves, rabbits,
white-tailed deer, wild turkey and waterfowl.
There are four permanent
waterfowl blinds available for use on the Port
Tobacco River. The blinds are available on a first
come, first served basis. Blind use and all game
hunting are permitted during the seasons established
by the Wildlife Division.
Chapel Point has a small
handicap hunting area. There are three established
hunter parking areas. Sign-in boxes are located in
each of those areas. A maximum of 45 hunters is
permitted at any given time.
