James Farm Ecological Preserve reviews
Nice nature walk with easy trails. Good views of Indian River Bay. Leads to a small beach with lots of horseshoe crabs.

We are on vacation staying in ocean city. This was a nice getaway for a couple hours out of the crowed tourist areas. Very flat, nice trails. Tree canopy over your head and it’s so beautiful and peaceful! About a ten min walk to the beach. You can wade out hundreds of feet and explore aquatic wildlife. We saw 3 horseshoe. We saw a couple jelly fish, clams, snails and an assortment of crabs. We saw a snake off the path on our walk back. One thing I would recommend is water shoes and maybe a type of floater, that way you could float around in your stomach and look down at the water. It was not crowded at all. I highly recommend for a family day! Dog friendly and really nice bathrooms as well!
This should be a standard stop for families visiting the quiet resorts area. Free parking, no required fees (donation box is provided), dog waste bags provided. The trails are well marked and explained at the information kiosk at the front of the park. Informational plaques are visible in multiple locations. You could spend the better part of a day here walking all the trails if you take your time and enjoy the surroundings. The trails are an easy walk and flat with some "boardwalk" areas while traversing wetlands and sensitive vegetation. The beach looks out over the bay and is smaller, but very nice. Dogs are common sites on the trails, so no problem bringing them along as long as you're ready and willing to clean up after them, and they are on a leash.
