“Public, Easy Access and Absolutely Beautiful”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The Delaware beaches are beautiful. Clean, wide open and sparsely visited this time of year. We were concerned that access would be adversely effected by hurricane Sandy, but saw no evidence of damage or major disruption until we traveled further south near Indian River. Even there the sand had been moved off the road and visitors were walking the shore.

We enjoyed a very mild day for Nov with temps in the low 60's, but be prepared for any weather when visiting in late Fall, Winter or early Spring. When you get hungry, thirsty, etc... head north or south to one of the communities that all seem to be open year round.

If you just want a place to walk along the ocean and de-stress the Delaware state beaches are a great choice.

“Nice beach and facilities”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We've been this this State Park a couple of times and it is a nice enough beach with decent facilities, as well as access to water sports.

“Delaware Seashore State Park”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We have done the Outer Banks for the last 6 years but did not make it this year. Instead we bought a travel trailer and found this campground. Although we missed the elaborate rental homes we became accustomed to, we found this to be a great substitute. Bought the shore fishing permit and drove our 4x4 onto the beach every day where we had plenty of beach to ourselves. The campground was perfect for RVs. Most of the places we've stayed have voltage that is barely acceptable for using your AC, but I don't think we ever went below 112 volts even when every trailer, RV and 5th wheel in the park had theirs running at the same time. You are also close enough to walk to the public beach. Although it does get more crowded than we'd like, it was great for night walks by the ocean. The smell others talk about was noticeable but not unbearable. We will return.

“Seen better beaches”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Water was muddy. The beach itself is OK, a little crowded. You haven't quite hit the ocean seashore yet.

“This was so much fun”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We went to Cape Henlopen State Park, and saw the WWII lookout towers, Fort Miles, and the absolutely gorgeous beaches in the State Park. My husband bought a fishing license and we even went surf fishing. He caught a small sand shark and a spot - all within one hour - and threw them back, but what fun. You stick your rod in a special holder in the sand, and then lie in the sun and tan while your rod and bait hook the fish! We had so much fun at Rehoboth Beach!
