Roaring Point Park

Roaring Point is a beautiful park tucked quietly away along the Nanticoke River, Maryland, secluded by dense trees and wildlife. The park is located about 30 minutes from Salisbury via Nanticoke Road. A short path through the wooded area leads to a .8 mile stretch of beach with a picturesque view of the lower Nanticoke River as it widens to reach the Tangier Sound and Chesapeake Bay. Acquired through Maryland Program Open Space, the park is owned and maintained by Wicomico County. Due to its historical and environmental significance, however, many local groups also contribute to the park’s ongoing preservation, including the Friends of the Nanticoke River, the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance, and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

Roaring Point is well known as a good fishing and crabbing spot by the locals, thanks to its location on the river and its long, rocky jetty that extends far out into the tide. The park is also a good spot for a peaceful walk through the woods or a stroll along the beach. And it’s a great place to bring young children in the summer to play in the sand and splash in the calm, shallow water of the Nanticoke River.

Parking availability and space is limited in capacity.  Early arrival is recommended, as spaces fills quickly.

This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants.
