GETTING HERE:
Located in Fishing Creek, MD, Hoopers Island is less than 3 hours from Philadelphia, Baltimore or DC.
Hooper's Island is 30 minutes from Cambridge and 45 minutes from Easton, where you will find restaurants, shops, antiquing and grocery stores. On your way to Hoopers, you will find your grocery needs in Cambridge and then stop in at Emily's Produce on the way (rt. 16), which has the best fresh produce, homemade jams, sauces, local cheeses and more. Continue to drive through "scenic byways" passing through the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, where you may spot a Bald Eagle, herons, sika deer, or perhaps a red fox. As you drive through the back roads, you will feel as though you are traveling through the scenes in "Chesapeake" by Michener and begin to shed all of the stress and worries from your "normal" lives. It still happens to me every time!

Once through the refuge you will approach the bridge to Hoopers Island, you will pass by the local "Hoopers Island General Store" if you forget anything. From there you will begin to enjoy the scenic watermen village, where boats line up along the Honga River, crab pots (traps) are stacked after the days catch and quaint homes line the main, "Hoopers Island Road" where the Haven is located.

ABOUT HOOPERS ISLAND
FROM, "TOUR DORCHESTER COUNTY"
Hoopers Island is actually comprised of three islands with authentic working watermen villages. Some properties have the earliest land grants in Dorchester County, issued in 1659, approximately 10 years before the County was established. The main island was allegedly bought from the Indians in exchange for blankets.

The Hooper Island Lighthouse is one of only five lights constructed in the Bay during the 1900's. The Hooper Island Lighthouse is located in approximately 18' of water, approximately three miles west of Hooperville, Upper Hooper Island. Hooper Island Lighthouse is the only cast-iron caisson lighthouse in Maryland with a watch room and lantern surmounted on the tower.

Wikipedia Fun Facts:
Upper Hoopers Island, Middle Hoopers Island and Lower Hoopers Island are surrounded by water with the Chesapeake Bay on one side and the Honga River on the other side. This beautiful yet remote set of islands is full of a variety of wildlife and is well known for sport fishing and crabbing industries.

During the 18th century piracy was rampant in the Chesapeake Bay. Boats, filled with supplies, heading towards the top of the Bay, were attacked by pirates who had been hiding in the many tributaries. Lord Dunmore, one of the more infamous pirates, created such mayhem that Henry Hooper, IV, in 1780, asked the Governor of Maryland for assistance to stop the plundering.

Today, most people who live on Hoopers Island have some connection to the fishing industry. The local families make a living as crabbers, oyster tongers and seafood packers.
