Hours of Operation for Riverside Beach: Closed for Swimming*

*The beach is closed for swimming due to the nationwide shortage in lifeguards.

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 Office. The beach is patrolled daily during the summer. The beach offers paddleboats and kayaks for your enjoyment. Rental fees are based on the half-hour, one hour, and full day. Picnic tables and lounge chairs are available at the beach for your use. Parking for the beach is located across the street.
