Yes, There’s a Boat Launch for Public Use at Camp Cardinal

Boating on York River

You don’t have to be a guest to launch your boat from the ramp at Camp Cardinal.

If you’re not staying overnight with us, it’s just $18 per day to use the ramp that puts your boat in the scenic Severn River and away you go! The views are spectacular, and you’ll get to enjoy all the wildlife and tranquility that come with a day on the water.

You can enjoy saltwater fishing without having your own license — sea bass, spade fish, striped bass, groupers and more are plentiful.

The launch is close to the Chesapeake’s Mobjack Bay and you can make your way into the York River.

Feel free to shop in the General Store at Camp Cardinal if you forgot to bring all the supplies you need.

You can also purchase an annual pass to use the boat ramp for $147. Pass holders receive a gate key so you can use the boat ramp every day of the week!

Did we mention there’s plenty of parking available? Stop by Camp Cardinal to pick up your day or annual pass!
