A great clean place to unwind and soak up the rays while enjoying the best of nature. Pickup lunch and snacks on your way in so you take take advantage of a full day. Bring your umbrella, chair and plenty of lotion too!

My daughter and I had a 2 day trip to Bethany beach and came to this park. It's $ 10 for out of state people. Take cash as they don't accept credit cards. There is a large bathhouse with showers, dressing rooms, and bathrooms. They also have a small place to purchase food. There is a nice boardwalk to the... More

Always a pleasure, to visit US State Parks, And this is no exception, clean, beautiful, and a Beach!!!

So do visit, just ask the State Park... More

We had never visited Delaware beaches before this visit. The ocean directly across from where we were staying was unguarded, not very crowded, and allowed dogs on the beach. We... More

Great if u love the beach. Marina and shore within 5 min walking distance. On inlet. Not good for tent campers though. Have to drive to places for food and entertainment. Great if looking for quiet, relaxation.
