A bit out of the way, out side Rock Hall, Eastern Neck is a hidden gem. There are several walking trails, a fishing bridge when you come in, several blinds for watching water life. Well worth a visit

We have been coming to Rockhall annually for 8 years and somehow never knew this gem of a place was here. Beautiful scenic trails and drives. Fantastic bird watching. And the butterfly gardens were just inspiring! We will definitely be back next year!

Natural wildlife, unmolested park where you can watch bald eagles, osprey, and other wildlife. Shout out to the volunteers who donate countless hours to keep the place operational!

We were there on Memorial Day weekend. It was about 90 degrees and humid. The birds had enough sense to hunker down somewhere. All we saw were red wings. The museum was minimal. The staff was quite helpful and friendly.

Hard to rate mid-winter - except easy to get around (doubt it's easy in Spring/Fall), nice viewing points, well-marked trails - ea relaxing view of diverse waterfowl in an historic area.

Driving through the center of Rock Hall you begin to feel the warmth and comfort of a small town. As a companion once described it, "Mayberry on the Water". With an open mind, the good old days in an original fishing village can readily take...More

A hidden gem on the Eastern Shore - perfect for observing the migration of waterfowl. We watched 5(!!!!!) Bald Eagles flying and hunting over the visitor's center.
