RV and Tent Camping

With great fishing, boating, hiking and the exciting new Go Ape! Treetop Adventure Course, as well as nearby Fort Delaware State Park, you may decide to stay here for a while! The 68-site campground offers modern showers, a dumping station, picnic tables and grills. The sites are all large, and six of them now have electric hookups.

Yurts

Yurts are round stationary structures with canvas walls that feature: a single and double bed bunked together, a double bed size futon, an outdoor seating area, and outdoor deck. Yurts are a fun and easy alternative to pitching a tent yourself, but still allow you to experience the rustic feel of camping outdoors. Perfect for the new camper! Maximum 5 people per yurt.

The yurts are available year-round, with a maximum stay of two consecutive weeks. Weekend reservations must include two nights -- Friday and Saturday, OR Saturday and Sunday. All other times of the year, yurts may be rented for any number of nights up to 14 days. Reservations are accepted up to 7 months prior to the date of arrival.

Since animals are not allowed in yurts, guests should leave pets at home.

Each yurt has parking space for two vehicles. Additional vehicles must park at the overflow parking lot adjacent to the campground registrar fee booth.

You may erect one tent on the yurt grounds for a maximum capacity of eight people per yurt site.
