The campground at the Indian River Inlet is part of the Delaware Seashore State Park. All of the RV spaces are pull-throughs but rather tight for anything over 42 feet. Our coach touched the roadway both front and behind. Since most of the campers on the week before Labor Day 2013 were large trailers or 5th wheels, all owners were aware of the tight space and there was no yelling as vehicles came and went.
The water pressure is a little on the low side when everyone is showering morning and after returning from the beach. Taste is good.
Electrical service at our site was fairly close to an actual 50amp 240 service. Only when everyone was cooking did voltage drop a bit although our circuit breaker got a little hot.
Restrooms inspected on a busy Saturday morning were clean although you'll never get all the sand out of indoor facilities. Basically, this facility is built on a sandbar; you can walk from ocean to bay in about 15 minutes.
The ocean is about 500 yards from the campground and the beach boasts a new dressing room, restroom and snack bar. Life guards keep swimmers under watch. The surf is better here than up the road at Rehoboth Beach and fishing appears good along the inlet channel.
The campground has spaces for tents with electric and water and there is a huge playground for the kiddies.
Trash is picked up often and the dumpsters were never full.
As the campground appears for be only a foot or so above high tide, rains can make some RV locations very wet with slow drainage.
Other than the playground, there are no amenities such as cable or WiFi. You are there for the ocean and/or fishing. Headboats for ocean fishing can be found on the north side of the inlet along with a new dockside restaurant.
The second best thing about the campground is the price: about half what is charged seven miles north in Rehoboth Beach or a few miles south at Fenwick Island. Because of that reservations waaay in advance are mandatory during the summer season.
The main attraction here is the brand new spectacular suspension bridge over the inlet. It attracts photographers by the score and the nighttime appearance is nothing less than dazzling with deep blue lighting of the cables and towers.
