Explore the Potomac River!

Coles Point Marina and RV Resort is nestled on the lower Potomac River, providing our guests with a great launching pad for exploring the Potomac River, the Chesapeake Bay and Virginia’s North Neck. Whether you prefer sea, or land, there are countless places to visit nearby – and a lifetime of fun to be had.  

We are so lucky to have the Chesapeake Bay, one of the East Coast’s most valuable resources, and its tributaries right here in our backyard. This rich estuary boasts abundant wildlife and sea creatures, access to the rich history of our country and immersion in different cultures at varying seaports and hideaways along our shores.

What Makes Virginia’s Northern Neck and the Potomac River Special?

A little peace, a little quiet and a lot of beauty.

Virginia’s Northern Neck is a peninsula lying between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers, ending at the Chesapeake Bay.

If you look closely at a chart or map of the greater Chesapeake Bay, it’s hard to miss the mighty Potomac River.   On the Virginia shoreline, you’ll find one of the Bay’s hidden gems - Virginia’s Northern Neck.  This unspoiled and lightly developed area has been a best kept secret by locals who grew up here. Visitors from central and northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Richmond are tight-lipped about the charm and beauty of this huge peninsula. This is where you will find Coles Point Marina.
