Overall Rating

When we pulled up I was excited to see excited to see that Delaware State parks had won some national award for "Gold Medal of Excellence." I don't think campground layout was part of the judging.

In all fairness, the campground provided what we were looking for in a stop for the night, namely electric hook-ups. After a long hot loud night at our last place we wanted both the coolness and background noise of the ac. The 30 amp hook-ups provided that.

Besides the electricity, other positives were water hook-ups at the site, very clean sites, clean enough bath house with free showers, and friendly staff and campground hosts. There was also one washer ($2/load) and dryer ($1.50/load) with a sign to use liquid detergent only. A dump station is available. Finally, a free bicycle loaner program that we didn't use, but seems like a nice idea.

The disappointing part of the campground is the layout. Three of the loops (A, B, and C) are back in sites that are all close together. There are a lot of trees around, but no privacy and a lot of closeness. Loop D had pull through crescent shaped sites which were slightly better than the other loops, but still close together. Large rigs, Class A, large trailers or long 5th wheels would be to long for Loop D. All of these loops had electric and water. A final area was a tent camping area without electric and water. I didn't check out that area. There are also cabins available.

The campground was pretty loud in the evening sounding like a children's carnival. At least the kids were laughing and having fun but it was still going well past quiet hours.

We camped in Aug 2016.
