One of the state’s most popular destinations

The park offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and Rehoboth and Indian River Bays to the west. Set up camp beside the iconic Indian River Inlet Bridge, only a short walk from the beach. Grab a delicious bite to eat with an amazing view at our 2 on-site restaurants: Hammerheads and The Big Chill Beach Club. The Indian River Marina is a full-service marina offering charter boat experiences and excellent fishing opportunities.

Delaware Seashore State Park

When it comes to fun on the water, this is one Delaware destination that has it all. On its eastern side, Delaware Seashore State Park has 6 miles of ocean coastline and dunes, perfect for sunbathing, swimming, fishing or just chilling out. Right across the Coastal Highway to the west, the park faces Rehoboth Bay and Indian River Bay, both beloved by boaters and both great spots for all types of watersports, from paddleboarding to jet-skiing to water-skiing.

On the ocean side of the 2,825-acre park, the two guarded swimming areas feature modern bathhouses with showers, changing rooms, snacks and beach-gear rental. Anglers love the park for its drive-on surf-fishing beaches (permit required), and also find plenty of good catches along the banks of the Indian River Inlet. The park’s Indian River Marina offers many services for boaters.

Just north of the Indian River Inlet on the ocean side, the park has one of the few designated areas in the state for surfing. On the bayside, windsurfing and sailing (as well as crabbing and clamming) are popular pursuits.

Away from the water, the action continues: Two picnic pavilions are available for family cookouts, and special programs, such as bay seining and marsh hikes, are held throughout the summer. In July, be sure to check out the popular Sandcastle Contest, where amateur contestants work their artful skills in sand.

There’s so much to do at Delaware Seashore State Park that many visitors choose to stay throughout their trip, settling in at the recently updated camping areas near the Inlet, or reserving one of the Cottages at Indian River Marina, located on the north shore of the Indian River Inlet.
