Cape Henlopen's beaches offers great opportunity for scenic surf fishing! Cape Henlopen State Park is home to breathtaking beaches for swimming and sunbathing. Two designated swimming beaches provide lifeguard patrols between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day (schedule may vary due to staff availability). The northern swimming area also features a modern bath house with showers, changing rooms, and a food concession. Cape Henlopen State Park also offers a picnic pavilion and the "Officer's Club" building which can both be reserved for group events. An 18-hole disc golf course encourages friendly competition, and basketball courts promote more active exercise. Take a trail break and climb to the top of the World War II Observation Tower, where the 360-degree views are spectacular. Or take a short climb to the top of a former military bunker to view the dynamic action along the Atlantic coastline. Explore the coastal environment along the Seaside or the Pinelands Nature Trails, or hike the six miles of beach along the Atlantic Ocean.
