Calvert Cliffs State Park reviews
The beach by the cliffs was off limits due to the landslides that were occurring, but the walk to the beach and back was amazing. It was 1.8 miles and enjoyed it a lot.

Lovely trails, well signed, beautiful place. We'd go back, but would be sure to do so at low tide next time.

Above average destination for where it is. There is a 1.8 miles hike for the parking area to the waterfront, through some pretty neat beaver generated wetlands. The waterfront is okay. Don’t know if I would swim or play in the water, but apparently there are lots of shark teeth around. I will probably go back at some point, but if I was looking for water fun, I would just complete the trip to Assateague next time. Hope this review was useful. Cheers.
Excellent park! Very helpful rangers. You should plan better than I did for the 2 mi hike to the beach from the parking area. (Just didn't do my research!) There are several hiking trails that are great. Beach is clean and water calm.
