This state park offers miles of trails and views of the Brandywine River. Also ranger-led programs. I could wander here for hours and never get bored of the beauty.

Spent the morning meandering here. Very pretty and the trails were nice. Bring dollar bills -- parking was $8 and no one was at the booth so we had to leave and get change and go back.

This park is really beautiful but I got so lost in there. It started out as innocent wandering and then I had no idea where I was or how to get back where I came from. I was also very sweaty. So maybe figure out...More

The park was ok. If you want a really good place to exercise I suggest the park but it wasn't any attractions in the park.

This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I ran through along the Brandywine Creek during a half marathon and was amazed by how pretty it was!

The park is very pretty and the trails are done well. When you get down 'in the hollow' you can look up at the bridges and structure noting the rock work. This is serene, and it is well kept.

The 14 miles of trails are lovely to walk. The nature preserves are beautiful and well maintained and the rangers are friendly. This is a great place for picnicking and also for fly fishing. We visit often

We parked here and drove a second car to the park upstream which is called first state national historic landmark or something like that ( you can also walk up, I think ). We launched ourselves on tubes there and took a leisurely float downstream....More

Went to Brandywine to do some light walking. The visitors center is small but the rangers were very friendly and well informed. There are several trails, none of them very long or taxing, but they are nice to walk.

Yes there is instate is $4.00 per car not sure for out of state. I think if you google Delaware State Parks you can find out the cast.

Creeks but nothing to swim or boat in. Nearby Brandywine is better for that. You can tube or canoe that body of water.
