Along the shore of the Patuxent River, Kings Landing Park has a history stretching back to Captain John Smith’s exploration and earlier. Once an active farm and later a YMCA camp, it is now managed by Calvert County’s Natural Resources Division. Kayakers, canoeists, and fishermen enjoy Kings Landing’s access to the river, nearby creeks, and marshes.
Wayside exhibits, funded by the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network, help visitors learn about the significance of the river and the abundant wildlife that depend on it. Hiking trails are open and beckon you and your dog for a jaunt. Download a trail map (PDF)
