The Incredibly Unique Park That’s Right Here In Delaware’s Own Backyard

Delaware’s state parks are full of hidden treasures – from Fort Miles Historic Area at Cape Henlopen State Park, to the incredible paddle trails at Trap Pond State Park, to the thrilling waterpark hidden in the woods at Killens Pond State Park, you’re never without something to do! However cool these larger state parks may be, there is one smaller state park that often gets overlooked, despite being one of the most interesting spots in the entire state.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
