  • Top notch state park. Beautiful beaches. Well maintained. Awesome bike trails. Historic WW2 structures and equipment and lots more!
  • For being a state park, the beach was not bad, not over crowded depending on when you get there, as long as you go mid afternoon, food purchasing is limited and doesn't stay open very long and service sucks, not surprising due to the fact it is Government funded, we hardly ever use Government claimed property for anything, also being funded by tax money, it should not have any fees associated with entering or parking of any type.
  • Gorgeous place! Black pine trees along sand dunes, miles and miles of shore, wildlife, WW2 towers, world class fishing. Outstanding park!
  • I love it down Del. I think I'm going to move down there when I retire.
  • This is by far the best park in Delaware. A very unique place with great trails, walk-in beaches, drive on beaches, and for surfing. A must stop if you are in the area.
