Picknicking By The Water The Chesapeake Bay watershed provides lots of places to picnic by the water. For a picnic with lots of friends and family, check out one of the Chesapeake region's awesome waterfront parks, from Elk Neck State Park all the way to Gloucester Point Beach Park. Many have picnic shelters with tables and grills that overlook the beautiful Bay or one of its rivers. If you prefer a lakeside retreat, head to Bald Eagle State Park in Pennsylvania, Rocky Gap State Park in Maryland, or Bear Creek Lake State Park in Virginia. Looking for a more secluded picnicking spot? Lay a blanket in the sand at Douglas Point on the Potomac, Myrtle Point Park on the Patuxent, or Powhatan State Park on the James. On the Eastern Shore, seek out your own private patch of beach at marshy Janes Island State Park and watch the sun set over the water. More picnicking by the water ideas.
