Go have some breakfast and come back later and enjoy the surf without sitting on top of each other like downtown Rehoboth. Yes it is a fee toplay beach but pony... More

This state park allowed the family to enjoy a lovely and quiet day at the beach. There isn't the noise and congestion you find at Ocean City and even other beaches in the area. There was ample room for all parties on the beach that day and great acreage to explore. The beach and beach facilities are clean and not... More

We really enjoyed a beautiful ride through the marsh & views of ocean & pond. It hosts several different species of birds. Very Scenic trails. It gives you an entirely different view od Rehoboth.

This was our first time on this beach and we had fun. Nothing out of the ordinary: sand, ocean and sun. Because this beach is part of the park, there were no life guards on duty. Occasionally you will see state park truck drive by. So swim on your own risk. A few negative about it: no trash cans (so... More

Took my kids here on a bike ride to escape all of the commercial crazy of town. Once all the games, rides, and restaurants start to get to you head here to get back to nature.
