Welcome to Gibson Island
Located in Anne Arundel County, Gibson Island is situated at the convergence of the Magothy River and the Chesapeake Bay. The appellation "Gibson Island" is a misnomer as it is actually a peninsula connected to the mainland by a 100' paved causeway. Measuring 3 miles x 2 miles at its widest part, Gibson Island contains approximately 1,000 acres and has 7 miles of shoreline. Approximately 2/3rds of its area is devoted to open space, natural woods, wildlife sanctuary and recreation. The topography varies and includes both low-lying, tidal wetlands and rolling hills. A place of natural beauty, Gibson Island is less than an hour from Baltimore, Washington and Annapolis, and BWI Airport, yet feels like it is worlds away.
