Bill Burton Fishing Pier State Park

Named in honor of Bill Burton, a Baltimore Evening Sun reporter, writer, and fisherman who chronicled outdoor opportunities for more that 50 years. Walking trails run along the water’s edge, with spots for picnicking and watching Choptank River sunsets. Piers are lighted and quite popular, thanks to the variety of fish that can be caught, including blue crabs.
