Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Oxford, MD

Oxford, ME is one of the oldest ports in the United States, having been established officially as a seaport in 1683, although records show it being originally laid out as a town between 1666 and 1668. Oxford and Anne Arundel–current day Annapolis–were the only allowed ports of entry for all of Maryland in 1694. It was also a major center for international shipping until the American Revolution.

Today it is a small town with only just over 550 homes, but a big destination for recreational boaters in the Chesapeake. There are over 5 marinas that offer transient moorings in the area, and the Town of Oxford manages a public landing and its own transient dock. To book slips or enquire about facilities at the local marinas please contact them directly.
