Fenwick Island State Park is a 344-acre Delaware state park between Ocean City, Maryland and South Bethany, Delaware in Sussex County, Delaware, US. Originally part of Delaware Seashore State Park, it was established in 1966 and renamed in 1981. The park is located on Fenwick Island, a narrow strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Little Assawoman Bay. It is largely undeveloped in comparison to the beach communities that surround it. Fenwick Island State Park is open for year-round recreation from 8:00 am until sunset.

  • Nice clean beach. Plenty of parking, lots of lifeguards and beach patrol on duty keeping everyone safe. Look for the orange flag and you'll find the dog beach. Having a real bathhouse and food area is also a major plus.
  • It is beautiful and clean and I always find a good spot to set up and enjoy.
  • Amazing compared to Ocean City. Not as crowded most of the time and is cleaner. Only complaint is that it costs $10 for a nonresident of Delaware to park there. It's only $5 for someone who lives in Delaware.
  • Beautiful beach. Somewhat crowded.
  • Great beach, Guarded. The bath houses are disgusting.
