1.) open sundays?

2) allowed to hunt under (not in) cliffs?

3) good fossils?

4) crowded?

thanks for any responses.

You will find mostly shells here. Sharkteeth are rare finds at this location. Cliffs sit back away from tide line.

I guess that's the Choptank, but hopefully some ecphoras on boulders that dropped off :fingerscrossed:.

As Dave said, shark teeth are few and far between. The only ones I've found are small and that's after patiently combing the shallow water. There are also plenty of fossil shells lying at or near the base of the cliffs and I've found some there that were new to my collection. Pieces of coral are also common. Don't dig into cliffs or embankments and don't climb on them. Definitely not crowded the two times I was there. I believe I was the only one hunting for fossils. The daily fee for access is cheap and they're friendly.

Thank you all for your help, I plan to probably go Saturday or Sunday, depending on the amount of thunder. :fingerscrossed: hopefully I can get some nice shells, maybe some Ecphora (maybe gardenerae if my lucks good) and maybe even a shark tooth or two will present itself ( and of course a monster megalodon:P) I will post whatever finds I get soon after.

Agree with everything said already. It's a nice place. A fairly easy walk on the beach. Good luck!
