Basic Directions:  From Easton, Take Route 50 to Easton Parkway (route 322), then take Route 333 South, 10 miles to Oxford.  Please observe the speed limit changes!

Public Parking:  Located at the end of the Strand and by the Ferry Dock.  Please be mindful of the grass and residents’ driveways.

Watercraft Launch Ramps:  The public ramp in the town is near the Highland Creamery at the end of Tilghman Street. You do not need a permit to launch there, but you do need a permit if you are going to leave the trailer in the parking lot. If you are dropping off a boat and taking the trailer back out of town then no permit is needed. As far as the size of the boat, length is not a concern but width maybe, as I don’t know how wide a 24′ pontoon boat. The ramp is only about 13′ wide.  There are larger public landings in Trappe and elsewhere in Talbot County that require a county parking permit.  There are also multiple public landings in Cambridge near Sailwinds that are large and do not require any parking permits.

Dog Park:  Off of Batchelor’s Point and Pier St.  Please curb your dog.  There are waste bags provided throughout town.
