I've been hiking this park for years and started running the trails this past summer. I run and hike at the Fresh Pond part of this park off Cedar Neck Road (Hickman Road) in Ocean View which is a hop, skip, and jump away from my house. The trails are great for runners. You'll have lots of company in the... More

We like it all, and buy a season pass every year. Great fishing from the pier, walks on the beach, clamming, photo opps with the restored lighthouse and ferry boat. Day or night, every day at this park is great.

Try parking during the key summer months at Bethany, Rehobeth, and other beaches along the Delaware shore. You must become expert at stuffing parking meters regularly during the day. An alternative is the all day parking by the Indian River Inlet bridge where for $8 a day everyone stuffed into the car gets to play on the beach all day.... More

Went here with my adult children and enjoyed the experience. Loads to do with the boardwalk and it's stores. The beach loads up quickly and parking is a challenge. Beautiful town.

Location is great for beach lovers, fishing, and bird watchers. Its natural beauty is overwhelming. Great place to spend some time alone or for a family outing.

Much better than crowded Rehoboth beach. I'll take the lesser know beaches and parks of Delaware any day! They're always clean and not too crowded.

We stayed here on a trip down the coast and it was a great place to stop and recuperate. It's a bit of a walk to the beach but definitely worth the trip. It was a very bike friendly area and it seemed like lots of families biked between the beach front and campsite. The water was nice and the... More

It has pull-through sites as well as newly constructed 'tenting' areas surrounded by split rail fencing. It also sits just to the left side, under the Indian River Inlet bridge. There are no trees or private swimming pools and the beach is about a 500 meter walk or drive away. There is a laundry facility and rest rooms with showers... More

This is a beautiful beach that wasn't to crowded while I was there. The weird thing I found is Deleware's "Pack in-Pack out" mentality for it's state parks. I understand this for the back country but when you are 20 feet from the highway, I feel like you are just asking for litter. Maybe it works for them, but not... More
