Unguarded beach swimming on Chesapeake Bay. Kiptopeke's northern beach fronts nearly half a mile on the Chesapeake Bay and features a beach and swimming area from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Pets are not allowed on the northern swimming beach. There is no additional charge for using the swim beach, but swimming cannot be guaranteed should circumstances beyond the park's control require prohibiting it. No canoes, kayaks, jet skis or boats are allowed in the swimming area. The south beach is open to swimming and pets, as well as fishing, crabbing and boating.
