The put-in area to the Patuxent River is approximately 200-yards downhill from the parking area. The launch site is a small sandy spot that changes with the tide.

The Wooton's Landing is four miles north of Patuxent Wetlands Park. The winds are calm. The shoreline is mostly wooded prior to the wetlands. The wooded areas are home to many species of trees like willows, birch, ashes, black gum and sycamores. Mumichogs and killifish may be found in the water and waters edge. Many species are very similar to those found in the Patuxent Wetlands Park.

A floating pier canoe/kayak launch is available. Citizens can drive down to the river, unload cartop boats and equipment, and park in the parking lot.
