General - Marine Max Gunpowder Cove sits in a residential community at the head of Gunpowder River. It can only be used by powerboats as navigation is restricted by an 11' clearance under the railroad bridge. To get to the marina it is necessary to pass through the Aberdeen Proving Ground Military Reservation's restricted area. Guidelines prohibit being outside any vessel within the area, no beaching boats or swimming, at any time. Mariner Point Park is an easy stroll away from the marina. It has a fishing pier, boat launch, picnic tables, playgrounds, volleyball courts, hiking trails and horseshoe pits.
