Chesapeake Beach, MD – The Mayor and Town Council of Chesapeake Beach are pleased to announce that effective April 1, town residents will be provided free access to the public boat ramps located at 3820 Gordon Stinnett Avenue.

“Providing enhanced services to residents, while increasing access to amenities in our beautiful Town, is a priority.” stated Mayor Patrick J. “Irish” Mahoney. The Town has owned the public boat ramps on Gordon Stinnett Avenue since 1992; however, residents have paid the standard fee of $150 for a season pass and $10.00 per “In and Out” ramp access.

During the Feb. 21 town meeting, the mayor presented Resolution R-19-1 for council approval, eliminating ramp fees for residents, with all council members in full support.

Residents may apply, in person, to receive their season pass at Town Hall Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Passes will be granted for boat trailers registered to Town Residents vehicles and rear-view mirror hangers for those transporting kayaks.

Residents can visit or email info@chesapeakebeachmd.govto obtain the season pass application form. Proof of residency, vehicle information and license required.
