First time visiting this park and really enjoyed it. Very clean beaches. They have showers and a boardwalk to get over the dunes. Also a snack stand. Drove out to the point to look at the lighthouse then climbed the old WW2 lookout tower. They offer camping and have different activities for children. Out of state entry into the park cost us $10 per car. Well worth it!

Great state park. Well maintained and a large space to do a variety of activities. You can go bike riding or walking on through the long trails. The beach is great and offers a concession for food, beach accessories for purchase and rent, and outdoor and indoor shower areas. A plus for day trips. Delaware residents are $5/car and out of state residents are $10/car for admittance. The beach is unsupervised.

I've been going here for many years. It's a beautiful campground and surrounding park. A lot to do and many trails- don't forget all the beaches! Dog friendly which is a huge plus. The dunes contain a lot of hidden war structures, very surreal. Clean park/ beaches and very accommodating.

I love this place. I go here any chance I can. The park is clean, and they have the best clean up options after a sandy beach trip. I also like this place because I can bring my dog, and let her play on a section of beach away from people trying to relax. The nature center is a nice spot for kids, and the trails through the woods can be fun. Love finding the old war bunkers.

This park has something for everyone. If you just want to sit on the beach, check, want to see some WWII history they have it, want to do some good biking or hiking they have it... want to go fishing they have a great fishing pier for free use. Make sure you go up the one submarine finding tower they have open to the public, highest view in town. If you want a more direct approach you can get tags and drive onto the beach with 4wd vehicles during proper times of the year to surf fish
