White Clay has a wide variety of activities to choose from Frisbee golf, picnicking, great running and hiking trails, concerts in the park during the summer as well as other special events. Well worth getting the yearly State Park pass.

One of Delaware's hidden gems when it comes to state parks. Live music during the summer, play area for kids close to pavilions and band stand. A triple A tier Disc Golf course. Running and hiking trails, horse trails and great historic lands.

A beautiful place to visit, particularly on a Wednesday night. Set up your lawn chair and let the breeze cool you as you listen to the sounds of the various bands. Food trucks are on site in case you get hungry.

Love fishing White Clay in Trout season. It's also a great park for a hike and to see lots of different wildlife.

There are several walking/hiking trails that parallel White Clay Creek. They are well maintained, shady, and the accompanying sound from the creek is delightful. The trails are multi use, with bicycles passing and often a fisherman or dog walker sharing the space. Great place to...More
