We recently spent a long weekend at Delaware Seashore State Park. None of the people in our party had been to this location before, and we were all very pleasantly surprised. The camp sites were incredibly clean. The bathrooms were nearly spotless. It was evident that they take pride in their facilities. It was a brief walk to both the... More

Like the title says. It's a parking lot and there are no fires allowed, ever. Pick a different place if you want to do anything other than fishing or going to the beach. We left and went to stay at Trap Pond. Sea Shore campground might be brand new but it's still a dump.

You thought you couldn't beat the location (and you cannot), now it has been renovated and looks great. They just had the ribbon-cutting ceremony last week and the new and improved facilities look great.

My family stays at the camp ground every year in July. It is so nice to stay here because you are only minutes away from the beach and can easily walk there. Also you are minutes away from the bay so you can go fishing.

This beach is exactly the opposite of the beach you'll find in Rehoboth Beach and yet it's just a short distance away. This beach is much wider, wilder and open. It's really lovely up here and a perfect getaway for when the closeness of Rehoboth Beach's beach gets you.

We live part-year at RB and love visiting this park. Unspoiled and development-free natural beaches take your breath away! So nice and relaxing.

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
