Chesapeake Landing Community

The Chesapeake Landing Community Association maintains two community marinas, Worton Wharf and Mill Creek, for use by Association members. The Worton Wharf marina is the larger of the two and consists of 36 boat slips with water and electrical service, shower facilities, and a launching ramp. The Mill Creek marina is a smaller facility which offers dockage for smaller boats. The Worton Wharf marina is located on Marina Road adjacent to Worton Creek and the Mill Creek Marina is located off of Clarissa Road adjacent to Mill Creek.
