Setting — Triton sits on a nicely grassed and treed 8-acre point that's sprinkled with picnic tables and grills, edged by three sandy beaches and anchored by a two-story, hip-roofed stone building that houses a restaurant, bathhouse and offices. From this park-like setting radiate three major sets of docks - stained a light gray that contrasts nicely with the bright blue pedestals. A brand-new dry stack "high & dry" storage shed is further up the creek.

Marina Notes — New owners in '99. The main floating dock has 2 perpendicular piers with vinyl-edged slips on both sides. The other floating pier runs out to a stationary fuel dock, and a third set of slips hosts smaller boats. There is a good-sized ships' store and repair shop. The new ('05) 200-unit dry-stack operation is situated around the peninsula in a creek that runs alongside the marina and is completely separate from the rest of the operation - it should have little impact on slip tenants or transients. Dealer for Yamaha, Mercury, Volvo-Penta, Angler Boats and Tidewater Trailers. Bathhouse has four very nice, private bathrooms with painted walls, lots of hooks, plugs and good lighting. Each sports a fiberglass stall shower with brightly colored curtain, toilet, & sink with vanity.

Notable — Walsh's Dockside Restaurant and Raw Bar occupies the first floor of the stone house. Inside is a casual, cozy wood-paneled dining room with bar; ouside, the awninged and curtained dining deck has expansive views of the water and marshland. In addition to being a favorite destination for local boaters, it also welcomes private pilots from nearby Cecil County Airport. A game room is adjacent to the restaurant and outdoor activities include volleyball and horseshoes. This is a good place to get out the dinghy and tour the upper reaches of the recently dredged Elk including Historic Elk Landing.
