We have a small travel trailer and I reserved a site that looked shaded and private. It would have been, but you have to park your camper on the road, so you're sleeping feet away from whoever is walking, driving, cussing at their loud kids, blowing up an air mattress at 1:30am. Yeah, I realize we got lucky with our... More

We have been tent camping here for the past several years. Have always enjoyed the location, however, things will soon be changing and it appears those who utilize tents will be the losers. We were informed many of the current tent sites will be turned into RV-only sites, trees will be removed, and many of the tent sites will be... More

This campground is situated in a state park that has a public beach. The campsites are less than a mile from beach access. We have camped here frequently. Definitely try to reserve a site that has some shade for the inevitable hot summer afternoons. There are also designated sites for RVs. Overall, there are more tent sites, but based on... More

Cape Henlopen State Park 15099, Cape Henlopen Dr, Lewes, DE 19958 ★ Had a nice experience as the park is great and decided to purchase an annual pass. I went to Park Office but had a 7 pound lapdog with me. It was a very hot day and I didn't want to leave her in car so I held her... More

Camped here for the past 5 years, this last time, the 1st week in June 2016. Great location near the beach, which is the main reason we stay an entire week. Campground does get very crowed on weekends which taxes the limited restroom facilities. They just added 6 new cabins and 2 new shower/restroom buildings, which helped the situation. I... More

This campground is literally right beside the ocean; just walk over the dunes. There's a great beach and if you catch it right you'll see the dolphins playing. While you're there go to the Bike Barn and "rent" bicycles for free! Ride the paved trail through the dunes and past the wildlife.

We tent camped here at the end of March, and were pleasantly surprised at how many amenities there were. The sites were well located, though I'd imagine they might be a bit close together in the summer when it's busier. We were on site 81, near one of the bathhouses, which was very convenient. There are some sites right next... More

What a wonderful state park conveniently located very close to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. The campsites are small and very close together, but worth the stay. The watch towers, barracks, bunkers and retired artillery remain dotted throughout the park. Great photo ops of the coast from the tower. Beautiful beaches and bikes are available to visitors, lots of trails. Awesome... More

I love this Campground. Plenty of trees around, ok to have a campfire and nice bathhouse. It's near the beach. It does not offer electric so make sure to plan ahead. The new bathhouse offers individual rooms each having a toilet and bathroom stall. There is plenty of privacy and room to change without getting your clean clothes wet. The... More

We've been coming here for years and add extra nights each time since there's so much to do. A new addition this year is improvements to the Junction and Breakwater Rail/Trail. It's even more of a bike/pedestrian-oriented trail so you don't need to ride on main roads until you come to the wide bike lanes. Another improvement is the bath... More
