Of course, Cape Henlopen State Park is a traveler favorite with drive on beaches and surf fishing plus, a disc golf course along the sandy dunes. Wondering where to go camping in Delaware? Try Killens Pond State Park, where you can even go “glamping” in rental cabins or cool off at its water park featuring thrilling slides, toddler splash areas and a zero-entry pool.
