Pack your sleeping bag, hiking shoes and enjoy a weekend in the wilderness away from the buzz of work life. While staying at one of Delaware’s campgrounds, visitors can wake up to sunrises on the beach, the sounds of rustling trees and the smell of breakfast over a campfire. Campgrounds in Delaware offer sites for tents, RV hookup, Yurts and renovated cabins.
From Cape Henlopen to Lums Pond, the Delaware State Parks camping sites are family-friendly and open from March 1st through November 30th with the exception of Killens Pond State Park, where visitors can experience year-round camping (weather permitted). Tall Pines Campground Resort also offers year-round cabin accommodations and on-site activities as well as seasonal campsites. Plus, locations such as Delaware Jellystone Park will remain open through Punkin Chunkin weekend at the beginning of November.
As the fall season brings cooler weather and breathtaking scenery, this is an ideal time to experience camping in Delaware. Birding, hiking, canoeing, fishing and biking are just some of the activities visitors will experience on their trip. Various campgrounds also offer easy access to drive on beaches and boat ramps. Travelers can follow the Delaware Geocaching Trail for a high-tech treasure hunt in the great outdoors or enjoy hayrides, live entertainment and nature hikes at the campground sites.
