The Underrated State Park That Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Place In Delaware

When Delaware natives think about the beautiful scenery of our state, most of the time it’s the beaches and ponds that come to mind. From Fenwick Island to Bowers Beach, Delaware has some of the nicest coastal landscapes in the country. In our most popular state parks, large ponds such as Lum’s Pond, Killen’s Pond, and Trap Pond are dotted with kayakers floating on the water on nearly every warm summer day. However, there’s one spot in Delaware that’s underrated and almost hidden – so many people have never been to explore it – and it’s actually in New Castle County. Yes, there’s a beautiful state park right in Newark – and many Delawareans have never realized just how stunning White Clay Creek State Park really is.

Take some time this fall or winter to visit the beautiful White Clay Creek – you can find directions and hours on their website by clicking here.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Of course, if you’re hiking in the winter, you’ll probably need to warm up after you explore. Luckily, the best coffee house in Delaware (hands-down) is close by.
