5 Under-Appreciated State Parks In Delaware You’re Sure To Love

Delaware’s state park system is very well managed, and the parks are always kept in such amazing condition. There are several well-known state parks like Cape Henlopen and Delaware Seashore State Park that draw huge crowds all summer long. The Water Park at Killens Pond fills up on most nice days, and there’s always someone swinging over your head at Lums Pond. But for Delawareans who don’t like crowded trails and people getting just a little too close, these quiet state parks are under-appreciated hidden treasures in the First State.
