Bill Burton Fishing Pier State Park (formerly the Choptank River Fishing Pier) is a fishing pier and state park on the Choptank River in Trappe, Maryland. The park preserves the former Choptank River Bridge as a pier, and includes 25 acres (10 ha) of land upriver from the pier in Talbot County.[2]

The park was dedicated in 2011 in honor of Bill Burton, a long-time outdoors writer and fishing advocate for the Bay.
