Weather conditions may limit available parking.

Breezy Point Beach and Campground a most popular destination and serves a high volume of visitors during summer weekends and holidays. To ensure the safety of our visitors and protection of the facilities, the park has a limited capacity.

During periods of high visitation, when Breezy's capacity has reached maximum it will be closed and traffic will be turned away from the entrance. When that occurs, no additional vehicles / visitors will be allowed to enter, including those with members of their party who may have already entered. If you are not traveling in the same vehicle with others in your party, we suggest that you all arrive at the same time or carpool. If any vehicle leaves the beach it will not be permitted to re-enter until the park reopens.

When the Breezy is closed due to being full to capacity, individuals and groups with camping reservations and/or groves reservations (25 parking spaces) will be admitted, as parking is reserved for those purposes.

Based on recent experience and visitation trends, and depending on good weather, Breezy Point Beach and Campground will fill to capacity and close on Memorial Day and Fourth of July holiday weekends, Labor Day weekend and likely to fill many other weekends during the course of the season. Please take this into consideration when planning your outing.

JellyFish Alert
The jellyfish have arrived including the swimming portion of the beach - please use caution when swimming. Jellyfish do sting when they come in contact with exposed skin; the sting is especially painful for small children. Although there is no 100% way to prevent jellyfish stings other than avoiding the water, information on how to prevent and treat jellyfish stings can be found at ChesapeakeBay.com

Public Beach Advisories Available Online
The Calvert County Health Department conducts routine water samplings of the county’s public bathing beaches from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Before you head to the beach this summer, check for advisories by visiting the health department online.
