Hart Miller Island is near the mouth of Middle River. Both islands were joined by filling in the water between them with sand. A stone dike was built on the harbor side to serve as a landfill for the dredging operations in Baltimore Harbour. As you can see from the photos, it is the most popular anchorage on the bay. Some come in canoes, while others stop on their cruise down the bay. There are well maintained camp sites for the smaller boats to go ashore for the night, and it is well protected from most high winds.
