Get your primordial freak on! A paleontology paradise, Calvert Cliffs is literally embedded with the rich history of our planetary predecessors. The massive cliffs that dominate the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay formed 10 to 20 million years ago when all of Southern Maryland was covered by a warm, shallow sea. When the sea receded the exposed cliffs began eroding. Today these cliffs are visual archives that depict the prehistoric dwellers, including sharks, whales, rays, and seabirds that were the size of small airplanes! Over 600 species of fossils from the Miocene era have been discovered at Calvert Cliffs.

The day-use park’s sandy beach offers unique fossil hunting as well as sublime swimming and sunbathing. Visitors of all ages can play on the recycled tire playground, cast a line in the freshwater and tidal marshland and explore 13 miles of nearby hiking trails. Make no bones about it, you’ll fall in love Calvert Cliffs!
