Is Maryland State Park Annual Pass a Good Deal?
I found this online, basically a MD state park annual pass ($100 for non-resident), allows for unlimited boat launch from ALL state park facilities. I was at Sandy Point State Park, just off the Bay Bridge, this past weekend, and found it a good sailing spot and many sailboats especially on the north side of the bridge.
Just across the bridge on the east side bay, where Kent County is, public boat launch for non-resident is virtually non-existent. It seems all public boat ramps are owned by the county and only 50 passes are issued to non-resident, who must also prove they own properties in Kent County. I reckon this limitation is result of the popularity of the area around the Bay Bridge, where Annapolis is at the south-west side.
How do people usually launch boats in the mid-Bay, other than from their regular marina? How about trailer sailors? What public or private ramps people typically use in that area? Is the State Park annual pass a fair deal? What other launch points other than Sandy Point State Park would people recommend?
