This Hidden Spot In Delaware Is Unbelievably Beautiful And You’ll Want To Find It
Delaware’s state parks are some of the most underrated places on the East Coast, but sometimes they can get a bit crowded. If you’re looking for a place to really escape the noise and crowds, and just enjoy some time walking through nature by yourself, you’ll want to visit this little known, hidden park just outside of Fenwick Island at
7604 Mulberry Landing Rd, Frankford, DE 19945.
Assawoman Bay State Wildlife Area is one of the most serene places in Delaware.
This wildlife refuge consists of nearly 3,000 acres that were once farmland, but have been reclaimed by nature.
Most days in the Fall, you won't find many people here. It's the perfect place to plan a quiet walk.
Be sure to check local hunting schedules, or if you're uncertain, wear blaze orange to stay safe as you wander the trails.
The Assawoman Bay itself separates Ocean City, Maryland from the Mainland, and can be accessed from Fenwick Island.
The Wildlife Area is part of the Little Assawoman Bay, and it's managed by the Delaware Department of Fish and Wildlife. It's the perfect place o drop in a kayak and explore miles of waterway.
The area is a significant wildlife refuge,and you'll often see rare birds and critters while you're there.
It's common to see bald eagles, giant woodpeckers, and even river otters in the water!
The biggest draw is the tall watchtower.
If you aren't afraid of heights, you'll want to rush right to the top.
From up here, you can see thousands of acres of marsh and water.
The watch tower is the best place to spot the rare wildlife that live in the Assawoman Bay area.
Of course, you'll want to be careful climbing up so high.
The views are worth the sometimes shaky steps and sinking feeling in your stomach when you accidentally look down.
The Assawoman Bay State Wildife Area offers so much to nature lovers, or those just looking for a quiet daytime getaway.
You can also arrange for an auto-tour of the Assawoman tracts. Call (302)739-9912 for information on the auto tour routes and hours.
You can also find a quiet, isolated park up north, in Kent County. Blackbird State Forest is one of the most isolated places in the state, and
camping out there overnight is an experience you won’t soon forget.
