The Oregon Ridge Beach operates Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. It opens each day at 10 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m. on weekdays and 7 p.m. weekends. The water will be closed 1/2 hour prior to closing the facility each day.
Voted Baltimore's best place to swim in 2007, the beach at Oregon Ridge is one of Baltimore County's best kept secrets. Originally excavated for iron ore in the 1800s, the former quarry is filled with spring fed water and provides welcome relief from the summer heat.
The quarry has designated shallow and deep swim areas and is staffed with independently certified lifeguards. The beach features a bath house, picnic tables and grills, playground, and a sand volleyball court. Please note, no alcohol is permitted in our facility and coolers will be checked upon entry.
