Breezy Point Alcohol restrictions take effect on Thursday

News Release, Calvert County Public Information Office

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Aug. 16, 2019 – Beachgoers planning to visit Breezy Point Beach & Campground next weekend are reminded that, beginning Thursday, Aug. 22, alcohol is prohibited in the park’s beach, fishing and picnic areas.

Registered campers may consume beer and wine at their campsites only. Glass containers are not allowed in any area of the park.

This measure is an effort to ensure a safe environment for park guests, minimize disturbances to nearby residents and reduce strain on county resources. The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners adopted a resolution on July 23 to restrict alcohol at Breezy Point.

Breezy Point Beach & Campground is operated by the Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation. More information about the park, including rules and regulations, frequently asked questions and maps, is available online at Citizens can also visit for regular updates on beach closures, policies, camping information, special events and more.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
