The tent site was big with lots of choice locations for your tent. There is a lot of privacy between the tent sites because of the trees.
The bathrooms were clean and modern. The camp store had lots of little items that I needed. And there was a Little Library.
The hikes in the campground are beautiful. The historic aspect of the Cape amazed me. It was a site for WWII soldiers to watch for enemy invaders. The towers are still there.
The ocean is beautiful but a bit of a walk from the tent campsites.
We went camping at Killens pond for the first time a few weeks ago. We camped in the G loop. Lots of woods for the kids to play in. Easy walk to the shower/bath house. The camp host was super nice and made sure that we had everything we needed. Great place to take your family for an outdoor adventure. Hiking, fishing, biking. They also have kayaking and peddle boats. We will definitely be back!
There’s a ton of camping at Elk Neck, including a loop with full hook ups. In the full hook up loop pay close attention to the lengths specified. The actual pads are fairly level but some of the driveways to them are very sloped. Long rigs will have issues in a few of the sites.
There’s a camp store, boat ramp, swimming, fishing and lots,of great hiking. Definitely drive to, and then hike to the light house (open most weekends) the light house and the view are definitely worth it.
Overall, we enjoyed our August 2020 stay at Elk Neck State Park. We stayed in the North East Loop as we needed both pet-friendly and electrical hook ups. During our hikes, we discovered that the tent sites have some truly amazing water views (particularly Miles Loop sites 169 and 173).
The bathrooms were immaculate in our loop, although the hot water heater was not working. Staff was friendly and kept their distance. The lighthouse was a nice flat hike and made for pretty pictures. We were disappointed to discover that there was a do not enter advisory for the beaches, as there was high bacteria content at the time. We did take a walk down to look at the beach, and to be honest, we probably would have passed on it anyways. Loud music and lots of litter. We don’t travel to the same site more than once, but the kids have both asked to come back to this one!
One of the biggest disappointments camping in a while. The entire lure of this park was the lake, which is fully mandated. There are no openings or public's spots for fishing, beside one very small dock. The actual beach is gated and have to pay an additional fee.
The camping part, Jaggers Point is really small. Regardless there are about 6 different park rangers driving around the sites as early as 630am. They even had a K9 unit that they brought fully barking around 730am.
The second day, the park ranger stopped at my campsite at 7am to wake me up to tell me that I left an can on my table and that he should have wrote me a 75 dollars ticket then drove off. Completely understand policy, but was unnecessary.
Over all, if you hate views and want a prison like outdoor experience, this is the park for you.
Positive notes: Bathrooms are really nice and has a dish cleaning station.
There is so much to do near this campground. The bike trails are wonderful and we like to bring kayaks to the bay side. Also, the beach! Not exactly cheap but it really is a great spot. My one complaint is that you definitely have to book very far in advance especially for a summer weekend!
Camping in Henlopen State Park was a great idea! My group was there, on two adjacent sites, from Sunday to Tuesday, in early June. The weather could not have been more ideal! We were on sites G12 and G13, which were both really large. Here's the rundown:
- Clean, accessible bathhouses
- Really large tent sites
- So close to the beach and nearby Rehoboth and Lewes (great dining and shopping)
- Easy-burning firewood
- Access to a camp store
- A pretty quiet campground altogether
- Campground fee includes beach access so you don't have to pay again
- It's busy! Be prepared to wait to get into the park for 15-45 mins due to traffic backups at the entrance gate
- The walk to the beach is a LONG one
- The campsite as a whole is a very busy one--there's a lot going on from bike riding to frisbee throwing
