LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: Pond Creek is a tidal creek reached by a 2 mile paddle via the Chesapeake Bay. The creek is well protected but the Bay approach is open to the southwest winds. Most of the shoreline is privately owned and the only usable beach is on the south side of the creek entrance. We try to enter Pond Creek about high tide.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
Since this has a long Bay approach and exit, a 14’ or longer boat is necessary. Paddlers must be comfortable with bay waves which can quickly reach 2-3 feet if the southwest wind fills in. A spray skirt is highly recommended to preclude swamping by the waves in the Bay. Bring sunscreen, water, and lunch and all required paddling gear.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
Once you enter Pond Creek, numerous eagles, osprey, and heron frequent the skies. There is a marsh area on the left after you round the opening spit of land.

Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
Closely adhere to the speed limit driving through the small towns.
