What a clean, quiet, well cared for campground!! I saw some negative comments on another site and was very surprised. The sites are sufficiently large. Certainly one can see other campers but check the site map and you can certainly find sites more private than others.
VERY dog friendly. They have an off leash dog area and swimming area. The trails are nice, wooded, uncrowded. Cross the street and you can access the canal trail surrounded by protected land. Great for walking/biking combined with canal traffic watching. We walked the dogs along trail and saw 1 other person. Another day we drove along the dirt roads along the canal and saw 2 other vehicles the whole time.
Easy to ride into Wilmington as well as very close to the Brandywine area.
Do yourself a favor and visit Hagley Museum!
I definitely recommend this campground!
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.
Having spent most of my childhood here camping at this park i was delighted to bring my family back to where I grew up. I love that they have added some new features such as the wonderful water park as well as a very well laid out and up kept disc golf course. The large lake is great for a day of kayaking and fishing with supplies readily available for rent at the boat dock store. If you are looking for some hiking there is a hiking trail that will take you all around the parameter of the large 144 acre park with plenty of wildlife to be seen as well as small trails easily marked near the campground. The campground offers Amenities for all camping styles from multiple primitive site locations to RV sites with water and electric hookups and blacktop pads to level your camper on and even an overflow area. Pavilions are public use and can be booked for large groups or parties and are located through out the entire park and campground. There are two playgrounds located within close proximity to most camping sites , these have been pretty worn down over the years and could use some TLC but still heavily occupied by children each weekend who don’t seem to mind. There are two moderate size bath houses within the campground spaced out so that they are accessible no matter which site you stay on by a short walk. The park throughout the year has activities and events that are fun for the whole family, my favorites being the Halloween fest in October and an Native American Pow wow. The campground is dog friendly which is great so that your whole family and fur babies can join in the fun. Lastly, if you have forgotten some of the basics when packing or just want some gifts the little camp store will get you by. Since Covid it has modified hours and limited number of guests in the store at a time but it offers a quick one stop shop for things like bags of ice, fire wood, books, matches etc. while you are down there stop above the camp store to the snack bar and get yourself a treat, my family definitely recommends the burger and an icecream storm.
