  • Fun place to spend a few hours learning some of the local history. The guides I've met are all friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Plenty of historical plaques to read and old structures to check out. There are also some trails behind the main buildings with beautiful foliage and views of the Delaware River. You can walk all the way to Finn's Point Cemetery. Also visit the picnic area and playground. Great place to walk the dog, too. And the best part is: everything's FREE.
  • The old forts are in pretty good condition. Great view of Pea Patch Island, and a great place to relax and enjoy the day. You can walk the beach at low tide and explore the surrounding woods via a trail. Over pleasant environment. It's also secluded from nearby highways and it very quiet
  • Great place to watch the sun set over the Delaware river. The mosquitos are pretty intense at sunset so dress and prepare appropriately. Good views of Fort Delaware, the Delaware City refinery and the Hope Creek Generating station. The World War 2 Coastal defense forts are in good shape but the park signage is starting to show its age.
  • Great park with tons of history. Great place to run your dog and enjoy the nature trails (but beware of ticks back in the woods). Lovely little beach area to enjoy, though no swimming.
  • Great Fort easy to find! It's kept clean. The kids liked hiking around the fort exploring. Great day trip.
