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.

Wye Oak State Park

At the time it was felled during a thunderstorm on June 6, 2002, the Wye Oak was the country’s largest White Oak and was believed to be more than 400 years old. A cloned sapling was planted in its trunk on June 6, 2006. The park consists of 29 acres, which offer a delightful spot to explore and picnic. A pavilion containing a section of the Wye Oak trunk can be viewed daily from sunrise to sunset.
