On the site of a former Indian village, Martinak State Park is small at only 107 acres, but that’s partly because it’s hemmed in by so much water. Bordered by the Choptank River (the Chesapeake’s largest Eastern Shore tributary) and Watts Creek, Martinak is understandably popular as a fishing and boating haven. Bass, catfish, perch, and sunfish are the popular catches in and around the park (you must have a Chesapeake Bay Sportfishing License). Both waterways are surrounded by hardwood and pine forests, providing great hiking and birding as well. A birding camp in July and a bass-fishing camp in August will teach you how to increase your chances in both.
