Nanjemoy WMA (includes formerly Purse State Park) consists of several parcels of land situated along the Potomac River and Route 224 in southwestern Charles County. The Nanjemoy WMA areas of Wilson Farm, Liverpool Point, Douglas Point, Ben Doane Rd. and Purse encompass a total of 1365 acres open to recreational activities such as bird watching, fishing and hunting. The 185-acre Wilson Landing Area is leased to Charles County Recreation and Parks for operation as a County Park with boat launching facilities. An additional 548 acres is managed by the Bureau of Land Management as the Douglas Point Special Recreation Management Area. Non-hunting visitors are welcome, but be aware of open hunting seasons and visit accordingly. Birders and hikers will enjoy traversing the marked and unmarked trails and old logging roads that wind throughout the property.
