Explore Rock Hall

For centuries, oyster-dredging was a mainstay of the local economy as Rock Hall bustled with skipjacks and bugeyes bringing in their daily catch. Sadly, overfishing and environmental factors have all but wiped out this lucrative source of income.

Over time, recreational boaters recognized the advantages of this fine, protected harbor with its easy access to the prime cruising grounds of the Chesapeake Bay and close proximity to Annapolis and Baltimore.

The rediscovery of Rock Hall has brought with it the opening of several seafood outlets, antique shops and restaurants. Once abandoned homes are being restored to their turn-of-the-century charm as gleaming new marinas, like Haven Harbour, offer state-of-the-art amenities and a full range of services to their guests.

Haven Harbour Marina Resorts has launched the retail development of Rock Hall’s main street, aptly named Rock Hall Village. The Village features an assortment of charming stores, a community gazebo and quaint sitting areas. During your stay, watch out for the the many festivals and celebrations held here, which often include fireworks over the town’s historic harbor.

For yachtsmen and landlubbers, residents and visitors, Rock Hall offers the appeal of an old-fashioned resort with the promise of a bright and prosperous future.
