  • Was satisfied with all areas of the park. We only stayed one night on our way to NY. Love state parks! Would rather support state parks. They are the BEST!

  • Henlopen is a beautifully kept park, worthy of the entrance fee. There is a beach, a lighthouse within view, an old battery with plaques explaining the history behind it and best of all, a nature...

  • Amazing find!!! We truly adored this park! The campsite was spacious, clean, and the history nearby is awesome! I was excited tho see that you could go up one of the lookout towers at the park. The showers were separate and clean. Staff was kind and helpful. Highly recommend this park for a wonderful stay! Just missing sewage onsite.
  • An awesome little park located in the first town of the first state. Everything was clean and kept up well. The WW2 fort is interesting and worth a look, but by far the best part, in my opinion, is the beach. It was my first time ever seeing an ocean and it was so cool to be there. The natural beauty of this place is really something to marvel at.
