Turner's Creek

Kennedyville, Maryland
Managed by ShoreRivers

Turner’s Creek Landing is located near the Sassafras Natural Resource Management Area. The landing has a long cement boat ramp for launching motorized boats, kayaks, and canoes. People can visit Turner’s Creek Park a short distance from the landing where there are picnic tables, a pavilion, and grill area. Turner’s Creek is a very popular location for fishing, exploring the lotus blooms, boating, and hiking in the Sassafras Natural Resource Management Area. Swimming is not allowed at the landing but there are beaches accessible by boat and kayak close to the site. The grain building at the landing once provided wheat for George Washington’s Army at Valley Forge and was ransacked by the British in the War of 1812. There is a portable toilet at the landing. A Kent County Landing Permit is required for trailers.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
