Did you know there is a primitive campground just half an hour from Wilmington? Blackbird State Forest, located on the border of New Castle and Kent Counties, is Delaware’s northernmost state forest.
Perhaps the most interesting part of Blackbird State Forest is that it’s got five primitive campsites – they’re isolated, hard to find, and first come, first served. While most campers in Delaware will choose to camp alongside Killen’s Pond, on the beach at Delaware Seashore State Park, or at the Indian River Marina, there are plenty of campers in Delaware looking to really get away from it all and take a few days off in the forests of central Delaware. Blackbird is absolutely perfect for when you need to disconnect yourself from the world and just enjoy nature, one on one.
Are you planning a camping trip for the next few weeks? This is the best time of year to get out into the woods, before the cold sets in, but past the dog days of summer. If camping in isolated Blackbird State Forest is a little intimidating, you can always start at cabin in Delaware or try a more populated Delaware tent camping site.
