Building a Future With Our Guests In Mind

For decades, the Donovan family has been committed to being part of the Chesapeake Beach community. To continue that tradition, the Donovan’s are excited to bring you a newly renovated Rod ‘N’ Reel Resort with more room for more guests, gaming and fun. Please continue to enjoy our existing accommodations, amenities and 24/7 gaming open now through the construction period.

For Your Convenience

As we begin phase 1 of our 700-car parking facility, Big Red is currently preparing the base of the facility by erecting large precast concrete beams and structures. This phase is anticipated to continue until early May of 2019.

The resort will remain open through construction of our new 700-car parking facility. We offer both free valet parking & park 'n' ride lots with complimentary shuttle service.

Free Valet Parking:

We have recently expanded our Valet Parking to accommodate our guests 24 hours a day. Free Valet parking will be available from the main entrance of the resort.

Self - Park ’N’ Ride:

Free 24/7 shuttle buses to and from the resort. The Park ’N’ Ride Lots E & F are located behind the Chesapeake Beach Water Park at 4055 Gordon Stinnett Avenue.

Get Ready for Epic Upgrades

Soon you will have even more space to play and stay. Our multimillion-dollar renovation project will enhance your experience with a bigger, better resort, featuring an expanded 24/7 gaming area, 48 new hotel rooms, a new grand ballroom and more. Look forward to attending rooftop events, relaxing at our coffee shop and hosting elegant weddings or corporate events that accommodate more guests.

Prepare to Live in Luxury

Our expansion is designed to fit into and reflect the warmth, character and history of Chesapeake Beach. And the community will only grow from here--our new Rod ‘N’ Reel Residences will allow you to reside on the marina and enjoy all the resort has to offer.

Get a Taste of What’s to Come

Excitement is building for the renovated Rod ‘N’ Reel Restaurant along with the introduction of several new dining options. Brought to you by the culinary talents of critically acclaimed Executive Chef Bill Gideon, our reimagined dining experiences will include quick-serve options such as a burger bar, noodle bar and coffee/pastry/gelato in addition to BBQ, an elegant steakhouse and a legacy throwback to our 1936 heritage.
