There is an island up on the Flats, just west of Fishing Battery Island (no chart name that I've seen, just says "Spoil Area") that I often see people camping on.

During a weekend day in the summer there are numerous boats rafted up around it, so maybe not a very quiet spot on a weekend.

Very interesting thread. Anything within range of Back River? (20ish miles)

HMI of course. But I’m curious to see what the Eastern Shore might have to offer. Less crowded, decent little run out of the Essex, Dundalk area.

Taking a guess- probably means Hart Miller Island. Every now and then I see people camping at the mouth of Fairlee Creek. Not sure if its allowed and on a spring tide it goes under water.

Sand Island is the spoil island, battery island has the old light house on it. Then there is snake island is the third covered in trees. They are all right around the flats, you go into swan Creek area there is a Swan point that is camp on.
