Cartop Boat Launch

This is also an excellent site for windsurfers and kite boarders. Attention to safety and weather conditions is paramount to boaters prior to launching from this site due to its proximity to the shipping channel. Park is open from 7:00 a.m. to dusk. Park is closed on Wednesdays. For further information call (410) 222-0087.
