Lounge around where the ocean meets the land at Delaware Seashore State Park. This seaside park offers the best of both worlds for water lovers -- you can enjoy the wild waves of the Atlantic as well as the calmer waters of two bays (Indian River and Rehoboth). No matter what you like to do in or on the water, you'll be able to find it here!
Camping facilities at the park include grounds with 345 campsites split into two areas -- the north and south inlets. The north inlet is smaller, but all 88 of its sites provide full hookup options. All of the other lots can be found at the south inlet, and they range from tent-only to full hookup, with prices starting at $20 during the off-season and going all the way up to $52 for a large, full hookup site during summer months. Drinking water is provided and there is a camp store in the park where you can restock on supplies while you're here. The only fires allowed are gas or charcoal fires for cooking, so leave the firewood at home.
Depending on what side of the park you chose to hang out at, you can either experience lazy beach days by the ocean or fun-filled hours on the bay spent water skiing, paddle boarding, or sailing. If the wind is right, the oceanside can get pretty exciting as well, as there is a designated area for surfing. The calmer bay waters draw people who enjoy clamming or crabbing to collect their dinner from the sea.
Your favorite furry pal is allowed to join in on some of the fun, though dogs are not permitted in public swimming areas. The park asks that all pet owners keep their pups on a 6-foot leash throughout their stay and that all woofer waste is cleaned up quickly and disposed of properly.
For those that crave camping by a beach, Delaware Seashore State Park has what you need!
