This is as close as you can get to Fort Delaware that is located in the middle of the Delaware River. In season you can get the ferry to Fort Delaware and even over to Fort Mott in NJ. The area at the boat dock was the start of the original C&D canal that used locks

You need to look around and get the following information

A = the number of black spots on the ladybug on sign by dock.

B = Number of cannons on the Civil War Shop sign by ticket office

Then go to the final stage located at:
