First stay here after remodel of campground. They did a very good job redesigning to accommodate those of us in travel trailers. Many pull throughs for larger units. Many sites have very short driveways that hold only a vehicle, pop up or tear drop. Overall a nice mix of sizes for the sites. There is a couple of tent only areas. The park has great beaches on both the ocean and the bay. Miles of Bike trails one will lead you into Rehoboth Beach to avoid traffic. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you are looking for a place to stay with access to the beach on the ocean, or the bay, this is for you. The unguarded beach is also pet friendly. Park has recently been renovated with new pads..heed to the listed lengths of the sites because some are only big enough for pop ups. 20,30,and 50 amp available. I have an EMS device and never saw the voltage drop under 120, and many people had their ACs on. (3) stations at the dump site. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need to venture out to the shopping area, do it early as this route 1 & 9 gets real congested with vacation traffic during this time of year. Don't under estimate length of your rig when reserving as some pads are real short. Also, be prepared for your picnic table / fire ring to be behind your rig...if reserving for a tent, you are better off selecting a "tent only" site as they provide a more level site than the rv sites.

This park is amazing. The bicycle trails are just fabulous. You can pedal all the way to Rehoboth or Lewes. The Miles historic area is cool and has tons of presentations. The beach is nice with lots of guards. But the RV campsites are a bit strange. There are a few very nice pull through sites, a few nice back ins, and a whole lot of tiny back ins. We'll go back as long as we can get a nice site. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

When reserving make sure to look at the site length. Don't just use the length of your trailer or you may need to park in overflow. There are a bunch of 15-20' long sites that the parking pad is only that long and then the site drops off.

The recent renovations are done, and now all sites, except tent sites have electric and water hook-ups. However, with the renovations the feel of the campground has changed so much. And not for the better. It now resembles a commercial campground with many very small lots. We used to camp in the area that is now F loop because it was quiet and peaceful. Now it's busy and packed with parking lots, fences and too many close by neighbors. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here about five years ago and liked it but since then the cost of staying at a Delaware State Park without hookups ($38) is unreal especially for an out of state camper. Considering that the parking RV sites are all on the loop roads with one's picnic table, fire pit and tenting sites in the woods next to it. Most sites have water but no other hookups. We stayed one night and only one bathroom was open but the campground closed down the next day so that they could bring in modular bathhouses to update the other three. Our bathhouse was clean, had showers but old and needed updating. What this campground has going for it is location, bike trails, beaches, great friendly check in hosts and it is near the Cape May Ferry. Some great bike trails! The loop roads need to be repaved most of them are buckling and it is hard to get an RV level. We would not stay here again except for taking the Cape May Ferry! We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very near the Lewes-Cape May ferry. Lovely, peaceful campground. No hookups except water. No generators--hooray. Dump station. Parking is parallel on the blacktop street next to sandy shaded sites. Spacious sites have picnic tables and fire pits. The park was an Army base during WW2 and there are many historical sites to tour including barracks, bunkers, and towers overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Well-marked trails and bike paths.Robust single stream recycling. Off season registration is unbelievably stupid, dysfunctional and illogical. We watched carefully for registration signs as we entered the park, did see an office building on the right, but no registration signs. Pulled straight ahead to a manned building on the entrance road. The person there instructed us to go past the building, then make 3 left turns which took us to the front of the office building, no place to park a rig, and no signs. A staff person walking by motioned to make two right turns--then there was a place to park and walk to the entrance of the office building where we were told that we must first visit the campground and choose a site, then return to office to register. Registration process took 45 minutes. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in Loop "C" which is close to the main restroom/shower facility. All the loops looked pretty much identical. The campground is very convenient to the State Fair and Harrington Slots and Raceway. All the sites were very wooded and had nice space in between sites so you aren't up on your neighbor. W/E sites and a dump station near the entrance of the CG. There was a mix of Class A to tents in our loop. We used the water park one day and the kids had fun there. The nature center is new and there are well marked trails and bike paths around the lake. The CG and park are very well maintained. For $25, it is the best campground for the money! we will be back! We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely campground with spacious sites. No hookups except water. Staff was easily able to assign a sunny site for our solar panels. No generators - hooray. Quiet and peaceful. Robust single stream recycling. We will go there again. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is beautiful - peaceful and serene. Sites were large - mostly level. There was a laundry facility. Generator use was not allowed. We would have given this park a "10" rating - but for the bugs (lots of them!). Bikes could be used for free. No camp store, but did have wood and ice at campground entrance. A nice area to visit - would return again. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

It was a different type of site. You park parallel on the blacktop to your site as previous posters have mentioned. This allows more use of the sand and scrubby pine shaded site but it was odd to have "backyard" neighbors as well as neighbors to the sides. This has potential if camping with friends to "open up" facing each other. Rangers did patrol daily. It was a short bike ride to the walk-in beach access (NEVER crowded). You had to drive to the "boardwalk"access. There was a neat WW2 observation tower, Fort Miles, and other military areas open to the public with tours available. The nature center was great! If you do not want to pack your bike, the Friends of Cape Henlopen (At Nature Center) have bikes available to borrow for up to 2 hours- for free. Awesome biking trails- all paved. The showers were mopped twice daily but not CLEANED. They were push button operated- water ran for less then a minute every push. We would stay here again. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice quiet place, with only water hookups. Be aware, this park has banned ALL generator useage in 2010: no not ANY. We love the place, but will not go back because of this restriction. Two hours a day would be fine with us, just enough to cook. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I used their on-line reservation system to pick my site for a single weekday night just one day in advance. I was very pleased with the choice as the description of the site was very accurate. I had site 102 for my 20 motor home (van), could have parked 2 more on the pad. Unusual layout though, you park parallel on the roadway to open out onto your site. Most sites appeared to be shady, but others are in full sun. No electric available and portable generators are not allowed. The walk to the beach is rather long but very nice. Campground is very dog friendly as are the fishing beaches. Be sure to take you bike with you, the campground roads are paved and there are several trails designed for bikes, you could spend the entire day riding and may not see everything. Ice and wood are available (for a price) at the check-in booth. I will be returning for a long stay soon. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped at this campground numerous times and always make plans to come back the following year. I'd recommend asking for a site near the upper bath house. Those sites are larger. If you are at the bottom of the campground (closest to the entrance), the sites are very small and piled together. The lower bath house is nicer because it has private changing rooms, but it's also the one that has the most people in it so during peak season, you will be waiting in line. This campground does not have electricity but it does have water hook up. The bike trails are great as well as the look-out points. You can get to the beach from the bike trails or park in the parking lot nearby with your car. I'd recommend this campground, especially for families and tents. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This campground being a state park didn't have much to offer, but the beach. It wasn't very clean but the area is beautiful. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely state park with access to both the river inlet for fishing and a walkway to the ocean for swimming. Very pretty views of the river right from your site. Campground was very clean including public restrooms. Campground is close to restaurants and activities. Sites were plenty large to accommodate our motorhome. Will return!
