West Ocean City Harbor Parking Lot Closure

Beginning Nov. 1, a portion of the West Ocean City (WOC) commercial harbor parking lot will temporarily be closed to the public. It will serve as a staging area during a project to replace bulkhead, eight piers, and one governor’s dock, along with all associated bumper piles at the commercial harbor.

Area residents and visitors may still utilize the WOC boat ramp to launch and retrieve watercraft; however, parking at that location will be limited.

“Recreation and Parks wants to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we complete this vital WOC commercial harbor project,” Parks Superintendent Jacob Stephens said. “The estimated project completion date is March 15, 2023, weather permitting.”

Alternate county boat launching facilities will be available at no cost at Gum Point Road east of Racetrack Road (MD Route 589), and the South Point boat ramp at the end of South Point Road. The Assateague State Park boat ramp (fee - $10-$12 per vehicle) will also be available on the north side of Stephen Decatur Highway (MD Route 611) just before the Verrazano Bridge.
