Delware Seashore State Park features two campgrounds, one on each side of the Indian River Inlet, accommodate a variety of camping units, from tents to large recreational vehicles - making it a great place for camping near Elkton. North Inlet campsites feature three-point hookups (electricity, water, and sewer service), with three-point hookups (electric, water and sewer) and Standard (no hookups) sites, and tent sites available at the South Inlet campground.
We like camping on the beach and this park does not disappoint. The beaches here are t nearly as crowded and busy as further south in MD. The sites here aren’t as close to the beach as the similar Assateague, and the sites here feel more crowded together and exposed. It feels more like a nice beachside RV park than state park campground, and that’s ok. You came here for the beach, and there is a very nice one right on site. The bathhouses were mostly clean, but could definitely use updating. The staff was very friendly. In fact, I noted how helpful and empathetic the staff was when we had a minor issue we had to call about. If you are looking for a nice and affordable beach getaway, this might be the place for you.
Great place to camp I have been going almost every year since the first time I went. Very short walk from the beach, clean bathrooms, beautiful landscape, and a good price!
Place is great for RVs (no tents)
Awesome for fishing & beech activities
Convenient location right on the bay! No shade though and right next to the highway so pretty noisey
This was a very nice campground close to the beach. Full hook up sites and pull-through. The only negative was how bad it smelled from all the dead horseshoe crabs!
Okay, so in the past we’ve driven by this place and wondered who would camp in that parking lot?! We since bought an RV and thought, let’s try it out. We LOVED it! So it is a parking lot of campers but we didn’t sit around the camp. We had a site at the end of the loop facing the water so we couldn’t really see anyone else. It’s a short walk to the dog beach and a little longer walk to the guarded beach. We walked to the marina, a little store there had the nicest staff member. There was a small deli/seafood counter in marina shop and a restaurant on site where we ate dinner. The beach has a water front restaurant The Big Chill that we had drinks at while watching the surf. It was mid May so we weren’t swimming. The view of the lights up bridge over the inlet was spectacular! We stayed on the north side but if you want to walk to guarded beach easily, stay south side of inlet. There was a small store on that side. There is fishing allowed on the inlet and north side beach with DE permits. We drove a short distance to Bethany Beach, and Rehoboth and Fenwick are close too. We’ve already booked the same site for next year! Plan 9-12 months ahead if you want to stay here. It fills up fast. I reserved our site a month out but it had to have been a recently cancelled site because it was the only one available and it was the best site on the north side in my opinion. Same site was already booked for next year same weekend in May but I set up a notification and when it became available next May, I snatched it up!
Flat, large sites. Typically windy and no shade.
The campsite is right next to a loud highway and you cannot hear the waves that are so close by. There are no trees and no privacy between sites. This campground is clearly made for the RV fishermen, not for tent folk.
