About the Area
The 168.5-acre park is located on the Perry Point peninsula at the top of the Chesapeake Bay, in the historic town of Perryville in Cecil County. The park has an unparalleled view of the water. Stump Point is the eastward-facing tip of the peninsula, overlooking the confluence between Mill Creek, Furnace Bay, and the Chesapeake Bay. To the west lies the mouth of the Susquehanna River. The area south of the park, where the waters from these sources mingle, is called the Susquehanna Flats, and presents a rich feeding ground for waterfowl, loons, grebes, terns, and gulls, as well as Bald Eagles, Osprey, herons and egrets.
