Rock Hall Harbor, north of the entrance to Chester River and 5 miles north-northeastward of Love Point Light, is the base for local fishing vessels and pleasure craft. The entrance channel leads north between converging breakwaters to two channels within the harbor. One channel leads to an anchorage basin at the west end of the harbor, thence eastward paralleling the waterfront at Rock Hall to a basin at the east end of the harbor. The Rock Hall waterfront is a 500-foot long bulkhead permitting overnight tie-up. No facilities are at the bulkhead. There is a boat ramp west of the bulkhead. The second channel leads northeast from inside the entrance and connects with the channel paralleling the waterfront. In 2010, the controlling depths were 4 feet in the entrance channel, thence 7 feet in the anchorage basin at the west end of the harbor and channel paralleling the waterfront, thence 7 feet in the basin at the east end of the harbor, thence 7.5 feet in the channel that runs northeast from the entrance to the waterfront. The approach to the harbor is marked by a buoy and lights and daybeacons mark the channels inside the harbor. A seasonal sound signal is at the light on the west side of the entrance.
