James Farm Ecological Preserve reviews
I’ve been a regular visitor to the Bethany Beach area for over a decade and this summer was the first time I found out about James Farm! I visited twice, once with my fiancé and once with family... more »
My boys and I visited briefly while traveling through the area. It was recommended by a friend. So glad we checked it out! The trails through the woods are clean, well-maintained, and easy to walk... more »
A great place to swim and walk around. Trails in very good condition, and you can actually swim out very far until you cannot stand. You can see a lot of horseshoe crabs as well as other wildlife, like clams. Overall, I like this place a lot because it is a hidden gem, and not discovered by the public yet. A great place overall.
Great views. Wide paths. Maintained very well. Peaceful!
