Riverside Beach at NRC Solomons is an oasis on the river. This horseshoe beach offers a great escape from the mid-day summer heat and amazing sunsets at night.

The beach is located just north of the Riverside Aquatics Complex and offers 400 feet of shoreline, sandy beaches, and is the only designated river swimming area on NRC Solomons.

Swimming is permitted in the designated swimming area when lifeguards are on duty. Pets are not permitted on the designated swimming beach but are allowed on the remaining beach from Club 9 to Sunset Pier. Pets must be on a leash and registered with the Lodging department. 

 Picnic tables and lounge chairs are available at the beach for your use on a first come/first serve basis.  Guests are authorized to bring small 10x10 pop up tents, but to ensure the safety of everyone, they can only be set up in the area behind the lifeguard stands.  Parking for the beach is located across the street from the entry point to the beach. The entire shoreline is patrolled daily during the summer.

The beach offers “man powered” rental boats for you and your family’s enjoyment. Rental fees are based on the half-hour, one hour.

Boat Rentals E1-E5 All Others
Half Hour $7 per boat $10 per boat
Hour $10 per boat $15 per boat


Patrons 15 and over are eligible to rent the boats once they have successfully completed the Navy SPLASH test; under 15 requires direct adult supervision.  All patrons, regardless of age must wear a PFD.  Boats are not to leave premises and remain in the designated guarded area. For patrons and Aquatic Staff's safety and well-being, boat rental operations are subject to closure due to hazardous or inclement weather conditions to include small craft conditions. We rent SUPs (Stand Up Paddle Boards) in both youth and adult sizes, peddle boat (2 and 4 person options) kayaks, canoes and the new DISQ Kayaks.

Hours of operation are subject to change based on staffing and weather conditions.
