Chesapeake Gateways and Watertrails Network (Chesapeake Gateways) is a network of partners and places that provide visitors with opportunities to enjoy, learn about, and help protect the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Chesapeake Gateways includes a diverse collection of natural, cultural, historical, and recreational sites, trails, museums, parks, refuges, interpretive and orientation facilities, and the unique programming they offer to the public. These places serve as entry points, or Gateways, to experience the Chesapeake.

The Chesapeake Gateways and Watertrails Network is coordinated by National Park Service: Chesapeake Gateways.
