Choptank / Little Choptank Beaches ?

To date we have sailed mostly north of the bay bridge in Annapolis, and enjoyed achorages like the Sassafras, Still Pond, Worton, Fairlee -- but now we are planning a Memorial Day cruise to Oxford, the Choptank, and Little Choptank. Are there any particular creeks or coves that have a good little strip of sandy beach to keep our 3 girls entertained? Also I'm assuming that the jellyfish won't be around much yet on Memorial Day- am I safe in that assumption ??

Choptank to La Trappe Creek. Just inside Martin Pt is a long sandbar and good anchorage.

Ditto!! That's a good spot to Med Moor, if you can get there early enough.

You should be okay on the Jellies, too. Have fun!!

Hudson Creek just off the Little Choptank has a nice long beach that should prove entertaining for them. And yes I would agree sea nettles shouldn't be a problem at this time of year.

I was going to suggest Hudson Creek too. Just inside the entrance is the long beach MJBrown is referring to, and if you need more protection from any kind of weather, you can go up river another mile or so to a well-protected anchorage to port. It's about 0.75 miles north of green #3 on Hudson Creek, if you need to know where it is.

Here's a pic though looking over our boat at the strip just inside the mouth, taken summer 2010. You can't quite see the beachy part, but you get the idea...it's a nice spot:

It may be safe to assume the original poster was referring to Memorial Day, 2006? Or perhaps they were planning five years in advance.

Thanks for the pictures and the anchorage directions, josrulz; I've often wondered what that area looks like close up instead of the trees floating in water apparition I've gotten when passing by.

Ha!!!

Good catch. I completely missed that. I hope they had fun anyway.

And yes, mjb & josrulz, thanks for the recommendation and photo of Hudson Creek. Looks like a neat spot.

Ha ha! I guess I should have checked the original post date too. Completely missed that. Anyway, Hudson Creek is a nice spot, and we've actually used it as a stop-over between West/Rhode/South rivers and Solomons. Don't get me wrong--it's out of the way--but instead of a single 43 mile day, it's a 30 and a 25 with a nice, pretty stop-over.

Here's a pic from further up the creek in that anchorage I mentioned.

5 years ago one would not have been able to party on the 'Strand'..now the Town of Oxford has lightened up a bit in order to attract more of the cruizers..that's why I posted on an old thread...
