  • The trails, especially near the water, are full of the scent of wild flowers in the spring. The river bank flowers reflect in the water. We encountered deer frolicing in a stream and watched an Osprey...  more »
  • It has so much potential. But there are little or no facilities and very little reason to go there. It is a perfect location for a State Park Lodge. Delaware would benefit from such an upgrade. and so...  more »
  • This is a beautifully designed park.however, i think portapotties or even the old fashioned outhouses could be installed in the primitive campsites near the lake. It would make it easier for little on...  more »

  • Loved camping here in area B group campsite! Huge area and so many places to park and set up a site. We had about 10 tents, although no electric there was awesome! We still pulled in a few campers that used batteries. Although we were never told it was a boat swimming area only, and the police had to tell us that... since we were just floating near the dock as a group, but would have been nice to know in advance. Close to outing locations (we went to a brewery) and the derby day event was great!
  • While the park is older and not so state of the art, the park is huge and has several activities from fishing to boating to swimming to several hiking/walking trails. The playground areas are lacking and could definitely use updating. The park is quiet however and has alot of wildlife around. Several bunnies and a few deer were seen during our stay. However raccoons are numerous too and very cunning so you have to make sure that your surrounding are secured from their claws and teeth. There are marks that they left in my cooler lid from attempting to open and raid it. They also knocked my tabletop grill off the table to pop the lid lock and get to the drippings in the drip pan. Overall I enjoyed the park and would stay here again.
  • Have been camping here for over thirty years. Well kept and maintained park that is family oriented. My family has camped hiked swam and boated this park and have many good memories.
  • I visited during the off season. I'll be interested to see once it's summer how the place is. I've heard great things about the park but during the off season it's dead. I was hoping I'd still be able to hike and wonder around the ground with my dog but they had gates over most of the roads and trails weren't overly accessible. The signs were sort of confusing as well. I wish there was some sort of welcoming Center as you entered. I've never been in the summer so maybe there is. I'll have to update later in the year.
  • Delaware state park. Very well kept in February. Very open camping. Not bad but not great place for hammock camping. You are far from the fire into the woods. A ranger told us to collect wood on phone. We saw signs that said you couldn't do so. Gas station, Wendy's, big lots, are the closes stores. Gas station sells wood about 10-15minutes from campground. Biggest down fall was you can hear the highway from through the distance. Not alot of trails. Every site had electric.
