Flag Ponds Nature Park is a nature preserve located in Lusby, Maryland along the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County, Maryland. It is operated by the Calvert County Department of Natural Resources. The park includes nature trails and a beach for swimmers. Fossil shark's teeth eroded from the Calvert Cliffs formation may be collected on the beach. The area included in the park was once a center for pound net fishing from the early 1900s through 1955. One fishing shanty remained until October 2012 when it burned down. It has since been rebuilt.

  • visit is very much worth the few bucks to enter. you could spend all day out here. there is so much to be seen! be sure to take a camera! you are almost guaranteed to see something that looks picturesque. I love this place! great for hiking, bird watching, going to the beach, or just exploring the outdoors.
  • Cannot recommend this park more - PERFECT for birding and hiking, plus beach fossil hunting. Parking is a bit of a hike from the beach, but not bad. Trails are in great shape. Highly recommend!
