super nice wandering around here. got a 60° day here in early February and it seems like everyone had the same idea to go to Cape henlopen and ride their bikes or walk/hike around the park. can't imagine what it must be like during the summer. but yeah, there are a few hiking trails that connect to the Gordon pond loop. didn't even make it to Gordon pond because I started wandering out onto these small peninsulas that go out into the marsh. no trails just bushwhacking through there. really nice. not much wildlife I guess because it's still winter but still beautiful surroundings. but yeah nice State Park

Cape Henlopen was a great winter destination for a family that needed to get away and was a little cooped up from 2020 and 2021. We arrived between Christmas and New Year's, and the neighbors we found at our campsite were quiet, friendly and welcoming. The park itself was simple, but the playground was awesome for our 4-year-old. We went to the fishing pier and beach to walk around, and we were only a few minutes from exploring Lewes. We will be back!

Great, mostly unspoiled beach by the Atlantic Ocean- the best ocean. Wasn't that crowded when we went, on a weekday in late August.

Lots of room to spread out. Some areas have some waves!

Great beach, good social distancing over labor day.
