State Park. Beautiful ramp and marina, on the Potomac, just 20 miles
to the south of the Washington, DC.
------It is always a bit of a chore, when you are a nomadic cruiser, finding a good ramp with safe parking for the truck and trailer. Sometimes a guidebook, the C-Dog Internet site, or a new boating acquaintance steers us to the ramp. Other times, like this time, it is dumb luck. A brown sign with an anchor, beside the road, said 'Smallwood State Park.' We drove in and discovered the perfect launch site.---
-----Even without Washington anchoring the northern reach, the Potomac is a delightful cruise in its own right. The Virginia/Maryland landscape is pleasing and most impressive seen from the river. There are many great anchorages, good towns to explore, and some just plain nice water to cruise.
