I prefer the state park beaches being a resident of Delaware. I get the season permit instead of paying every visit. The beaches are well kept, don't seem to have the riff-raff you run across at the public beaches, freer to enjoy the beach. Some, maybe all, state park beaches don't have life guards, so beware. Some have bath houses which is a plus, most have dune crossing mats that make it much nicer.

Otherwise known as Cape Henlopen. A few different choices of Beach and lots of biking walking trails.

Beautiful sandy beach to walk along. It felt like it was our personal beach as it was so quiet off season

Spent a Saturday afternoon here and had a great time. It was very crowded, so if you want to spend time at the beach (which is quite narrow), come early. We barely had a place to park in the very large lot. The park was well-staffed, however, and there were employees helping you find a spot. We found it a very interesting place to walk, as you have the beach, the area where people fish, and that beautiful bridge which affords terrific views. Then there's an elevated bar for refreshments afterwards. Fabulous!

loved this beach area so much better than south of here. This is off season but the weather was very nice and not many visitors.

We ended up stopping here on our way from Ocean City to Rehobeth and absolutely loved the setting next to the bridge. We were planning to go to Bethany or Dewey beach, just to try something different from Ocean City, but this small, much quieter, beach venue caught our attention and we love it! Reminded me a lot of the shore line in San Francisco near the Golden Gate Bridge, which I've visited a few times.

I stop by here regularly on my bicycle rides along the coast. The park straddles both banks of the Indian River. There's plenty of parking and camping is allowed on the North shore of the park. I don't know the price for camping, but the day use fee is $5 in-state & $10 out-of state. The South shore has a great restaurant/bar and the North shore has a marina & bar. The state park also plenty of restroom and showers.

When riding on your bicycle, you can access the state park without paying and use the facilities. If you're camping at the park, Dewey Beach is approximately 5-miles north and Bethany Beach is approximately 5-miles south. To get between the North and South shores, you'll have to cross the bride that goes across the Indian River. There are both/separate bicycle and pedestrians lanes on both sides of the bridge.

There are also beautiful sandy beaches along eastern shoreline of the park on both the North and South Shores.

Great park for fishing, camping, and the beach. Only one real hiking trail in the whole park around Burton's Island Nature Preserve (1.3 mile loop, flat, easy, gravel/sand unpaved trail). Some restaurants there and plenty of parking.

We strolled the clean sandy beaches for hours. It was a Friday in July, so was very busy near the visitor center, but thinned out a few hundred yards south. There were lots of families, and it was quiet except for the murmur of beach goers and the crashing waves.

We stayed one night at the campground at the base of a large highway bridge. You drive around and around. No trees, small sites, most restrooms are closed and power only (no water or septic). No fires allowed. The bike / hiking path is nice.
