This is a nice state park with paved interior roads & paved unit pads. Pay close attention to the site you book as some site pads are very short. No sewer is available. There are multiple friendly camp hosts keeping things cleaned up. Restrooms/showers are individual rooms. This is a very sandy campground. There are many biking trails. The fort was closed during our visit. There is a small campstore. Most people would need to bike or go by car to the beach. Our hookups were good. We received many OTA TV stations & our Verizon hotspot worked well. We would stay again. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this state park campground for 5 nights, Sunday-Friday in August. There are pull-thru and back-in sites in this campground. Check the campground map and reserve early to get the right site for you and your rig. The campground is a quiet family campground and stays full and busy; it is clean and well managed. Staff is friendly and helpful. The campground lies within Cape Henlopen State Park which is large and has lots of activities. There is a historical fort, a nature center, playground, beaches, walking/biking trails, and observation towers. We usually tow a car with our RV but didn't bring one this time. We were able to ride our bikes wherever we wanted. We rode bikes to catch the ferry and went over to Cape May; we rode bikes to Rehoboth Beach; we rode bikes to the historical town of Lewes; we rode bikes to 4 different beaches, and we also rode all of the trails in the park. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest parks for beaches, crabbing, fishing, walking, bird watching, photography and bicycle riding. Site size vary from tight to spacious pull throughs. Our motorhome was in a tight site while a single woman in her tent was in a pull through. We reserved our site 6 months in advance and at that time we only had a few to choose from. You reserve the exact site you want up to a year in advance. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

Wow, this is an awesome State Park and campground! We can't wait to come back and stay longer! The sites are pretty close to each other but we did not mind because everything else makes up for it. Miles of biking trails! You can even ride all the way to nearby Lewes or Bethany Beach from the campground. There is beach access within the Park with bathrooms and concession stand. We rode our bikes to the beach! There is a WWII camp in the park as well and we enjoyed climbing the look out tower. Roads are paved in the campground and the sites are mostly sand. Sites shaded. Very nice laundry facilities. Clean, newer bathrooms that are all individual units with a sink, toilet, and shower. Camp store that sells firewood. There is a nice nature center with a touch tank. Many trails to hike. Nice playgrounds throughout the park. No sewer at the sites but they all have electric and water. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Space E9 was perfect for my 30 foot Coach. Great bike trails in park that connect to paths leading to Rehobeth Beach. Great access to Cape Henlopen Beach and short bike ride to Lewes-Cape May ferry. The weather was windy so the waves and rip currents were strong in ocean side. I love this campground and I will be using it again in the near future. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Motorhome.

Our site was level and mostly clear of sand on the pad. Had to do a little work to get my camper back all the way in. The store was nice. Location to the beach was a short car or bike ride. The only 2 things we found wrong, our fire ring was on the back side of the camper. The bathhouse was new and as clean as be with all the sand. The only thing about the bathhouse was there was no rooms with just a bathroom. (each room has a shower, sink and toilet.) So the line can be long to just use the bathroom. This does not bother campers with their own bathroom. We would stay at this park again and recommend it to others. 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.

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.

We camped here over a weekend in June this year. It was our first time at this park and we had a great time. The facilities were clean, the staff was great and the park was quiet. Since it was a summer weekend at the shore, the park was rather full. You need to drive to the beach because it is too far to walk with small children. We plan on going back next summer. Since this is a Delaware state park and we are not residents of Delaware, the rate per night was slightly higher than for state residents. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Great state park, large sites, sand and paved. Drive or bike down to the beach, too far to walk, but wasn't really a problem. Interesting former military base, with lots to explore in park. No camp store, and attendant not in much, but ice and firewood available at gate. Could use more baths, crowded at times. Large beach area, cleaned nightly, lifeguards on duty, concessions and restrooms available. Fishing pier, kayak rentals, lots of good programs/tours in park. We camped at Cape Henlopen State Park in a Tent Trailer.
