If swimming is your thing, Delaware State Parks offer quite a number of opportunities to enjoy the water. Ocean beaches at the three major beach parks offer guarded swimming away from the crowds and commercialism of the resort beaches. The Water Park at Killens Pond State Park gives visitors a chance to slide the tallest water slides in Kent County, play in the fountains and enjoy a picnic in a brand new facility.

Beach Parks

Some of the most beautiful beaches on the Atlantic seaboard are found in Delaware State Parks. Enjoy a variety of activities along 14 miles of state park beach including sun bathing, swimming, surf fishing, clamming, crabbing, sailing, boating, surfing, and camping. Hiking trails, nature programs, and bird watching offer superb opportunities for nature lovers.

Lifeguards are available at guarded beaches from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

MobiMats, which allow access to the beach for persons using standard wheelchairs, are available at Cape Henlopen State Park's main beach area, Delaware Seashore State Park's Towers Ocean and South Inlet entrances, and Fenwick Island State Park's main entrance. Beach wheelchairs may be reserved free of charge at Cape Henlopen, Delaware Seashore, and Fenwick Island State Parks. Learn more about our beach accessibility options
