Imagine yourself transported to a woodsy scene under starry skies, listening to the crackling campfire as you end a fun-fueled day. It’s a thought that inspires peaceful vibes, and a moment that makes you realize: Why don't we go camping more often?

The answer to your daydreams is easy to find: Delaware is filled with an amazing lineup of family-friendly outdoor adventures, ranging from tent-ready campsites to cozy cottages with all the amenities needed for a “glamping” adventure.

Many are just minutes from resort attractions, and mere steps from more outdoor excursions. All of them are perfect for a luxurious outdoor getaway this year.

Big Oaks Family Campground (Rehoboth Beach): Air-conditioned cabins are nestled in a charming wooded setting that’s just two miles from the beach, and steps from a rich array of camp activities, from the pool to the playground.

Cape Henlopen State Park (Lewes): Head for one of the nation’s finest state parks and settle in at your cabin near the sea. Your screened porch serves as a perfect dinner setting, freshened by the salty sea breeze.

Delaware Seashore State Park (Rehoboth Beach): An oceanside paradise awaits on the north shore of the Indian River Inlet, where the Cottages at Indian River Marina offer a stay that’s steps from the ocean, and close to the park’s restaurants, watersports and hiking excursions.

Killen’s Pond State Park (Felton):  The cozy wood-framed family cabins are nestled in a wooded area near the water park and 66-acre mill pond, complete with shower, efficiency kitchen and air conditioning. (Grab Cabin 10, and you can bring your dog!).

Lums Pond State Park (Bear): Outdoor life is a little more luxurious in a yurt, especially when it’s next to the state’s biggest pond and a zipline course. (Reader's Digest rates Lums Pond as the best RV park in Delaware.)

Sun Outdoors Rehoboth Bay (formerly Massey’s Landing, Millsboro): Get the soothing Inland Bay experience with a touch of luxury, whether you grab a beachfront cottage or snuggle into a “Safari Tent.” Tons of activities and pet-friendly amenities.

Tall Pines Campground Resort (Lewes): You’ll enjoy a luxurious adventure just 10 miles from the beach in your Deluxe or “Deluxe Suite” cabins. Amenities abound: splash park, mini-golf, swimming pool and hiking paths.

Trap Pond State Park (Laurel): Your rustic 2-room cabin is steps from the water, and comes with a screened porch. Or, try a yurt, a circular tent structure with bunk beds, futon and deck. Head out for a pontoon boat tour, or kayak through the stands of bald cypress trees.

Yogi Bear’s Delaware Beaches Jellystone Park (Lincoln). Say hi to Yogi before you settle in to your cabin complete with a full kitchen, bathroom, screened porch, and a grill. Then hit the new waterslides, expanded arcade, and batting cage.
