Here Is The Most Remote, Isolated Spot In Delaware And It’s Positively Breathtaking

Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge was established in March of 1927, and it consists of a 16,000-acre refuge and breeding ground for migratory and wintering waterfowl along the Atlantic Flyway. Federal Duck Stamp funds helped purchase the land from local farmers and landowners. Is the most remote, isolated spot in Delaware – with nothing around for miles but marsh, wetlands, and the occasional walking trail or observation tower.
