This year we had great weather even in the winter so we had a chance to hike a little more. Love the paths, it's clean and certainly safe. Great parking with clean bathrooms. If you like to hike this is a great place. It is a carry in - carry out for trash and they do ask for donations when... More

As guests, we saw the bathroom, dining room and family parlor. Behind the family parlor room there was another... More

Hiking and biking trails are fantastic. You can enjoy the best of nature on anyone of the numerous trails at White Clay. We've been hiking the trails for a number of years, and each time is enjoyable as the first time.

A great place to ride the mountain bike. There are miles of trails that have been cut and maintained by cyclists.

We have family living in Newark so they knew of the park. Six of us went to the park to walk along a terrific trail through a section of the park. It was a terrific area to explore...lots of water, great trees and wildlife.

You can spend an hour to a few hours walking around and taking in the views. There are also some important border markers where the states join. Be sure to get the online park maps. Watch out for mosquitoes and ticks. Bring water.

large park in parts of 2 states, many trails or paths to follow, lots of wildlife and wild flowers. No matter your interest in nature, there is a lot here, at least for this part of the country.
