  • We had a party here and had a nice time. You have areas to play, go down to the river, and it is clean. The staff is there to answer your questions about the fort. We plan to go back there again this ...  more »
  • There are pavilions to sit under while you barbeque in the spring, summer and fall. It's on the Delaware River, so there's a great view. There's also places to walk and see the fort.  more »

  • Great place to spend the day playing, walking or checking out the historical sites. Very beautiful park. It looks amazing in the fall. Lots of beautiful colors. Pack a lunch and spend the day!
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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.
