If You Live In Delaware, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park

Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes has been designated for public use since Delaware was still one of the Thirteen Colonies. It’s still beloved to this day for its excellent fishing, camping, hiking, and biking, as well as its fascinating history.

The land played an important part in World War II, with Fort Miles, bunkers, and the pier, as well as observation and fire control towers still occupying the grounds. Two lighthouses also survive from this era.

The beach, fishing, eco-tours and bike rentals all make Cape Henlopen Delaware’s most popular state park, especially during the busy summer season, which is right around the corner. Whether it’s your first time or 100th time, we hope you’ll come and check out this local landmark and historic national treasure.
