Jackson Creek is a 1.5-acre public landing on the Queen Anne’s County side of the lower Chester River. The facility has a beach and benches for enjoying nature or for crabbing and fishing. There is no ramp for launching trailered vessels at this landing. But it is a suitable location for launching canoes and kayaks. Paddlers should be aware that this site is located on the relatively large, open waters of the lower Chester River and as a result, it is best to launch from Jackson Creek on calm days. Heading west, paddlers will go past numerous waterfront developments and condominiums on the way to Kent Narrows (2 miles). Just beyond the narrows lies Ferry Point Park, an excellent place to stop and relax, and scenic Piney Creek. Heading east, paddlers will initially cruise past waterfront development/s, then large farms, sandy beaches, and a golf course on the way to Queenstown Harbor (4 miles).
Wheelchair accessible portable toilets are provided year round.
