Maryland Marines Property Wildlife Management Area
The Maryland Marine Properties WMA is a great place to watch boats go by. Recreational craft joins fishing, crabbing, and other workboats sailing in and out of the adjacent Pocomoke River in southeastern Somerset County. Mostly marshlands with forests, forested wetlands, and fields, this 1,130-acre tract supports the unique ecology along with the mouth of a great river entering the Chesapeake Bay. **Be aware of open hunting seasons and visit accordingly.**
