Cedar Point Road, Bldg 486
MWR’s Beach House faces the confluence of the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay. It waits year round to be rented by those wishing to throw parties or functions in a distinctive setting. The Beach House offers Patuxent River partygoers an enjoyable and scenic area for picnics and command functions.
The Beach House can accommodate more than 200 people and offers a kitchen facility, barbecue grills, an outdoor seating area, two outdoor covered pavilions, a small ice machine and electricity inside the building. A softball field, horseshoe pit, interior restrooms and picnic tables are a part of this facility. A party bag containing a variety of sports equipment is available for checkout through the Gear Issue Room at the Drill Hall. To reserve a party bag, bring your Party Request form, provided to you at the time of rental, to Gear Issue at least two weeks prior to your party. The party bag will be made up for you at no charge. Across the roadway from the Beach House is playground equipment. There is also a working fireplace and heat is available for cold weather functions.
A small parking lot (approximately 30 spaces) adjoins the building and road shoulder parking is permitted. No cooking is permitted inside the Beach House main room.
It is the party host's responsibility to make sure that the party picnic site is clean and free of any debris. There are ample dumpsters available. Beach House users should pay particular attention to the cleanliness of the building interior and the grounds before departing the area. (This includes sweeping, mopping and wiping down all countertops and other cooking and eating areas. You provide your own supplies.) In the event that the facility is left dirty, the command or individual host will be assessed a cleaning fee.
The Beach House is a secured facility and keys must be signed out at the Information Ticket and Tours Office. Keys for weekday parties can be picked up on the designated party date. Only weekend and holiday party hosts may pick up keys the Friday before the party or the day before a designated holiday. Keys must be picked up no later than 5 pm. There is a $20.00 fine imposed for lost Beach House keys.
