Bloodsworth Island is an island in the Chesapeake Bay. It lies in southern Dorchester County, Maryland. Historic research suggests that sites discovered in an archaeological investigation of the northern third of the island were associated with families who worked in the nineteenth-century Chesapeake Bay oystering industry.

From 1942 to 1995, the United States Navy used the island as a shore bombardment and bombing range for firing and dropping live ordnance from ships and aircraft. This included bombs, small and large caliber ammunition, rockets, and missiles that contained explosives, propellants, and other energetics. Due to extensive contamination by unexploded ordnance, the island is currently off-limits to the public.
