“One of the Prettiest State Parks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

Usually pretty clean, lots of walking paths, trees and pines throughout, restroom facilities, the little cafe is substandard, but good for drinks if needed. Free rental of bikes and a nature center. Park rangers very friend.y

“A Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

If you are in Lewes (or vacinity) and are seeking some exercise, beauty and history I recommend at least a day trip to Cape Henlopen. I loved the easy access to the bike trails and the beauty of the park (you really need to go to the top of the Observation Tower - gives an excellent view of all the surrounding areas)

“Worth the stop..enjoy the ocean..the quiet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

A lot to do here... It was quiet this time of year, with only a few people here and there. Nice scnery and worth stopping. My husband dropped his wallet outside of the car when getting out of the car to head to the water. When we returned a few hours later, I could see it from a distance on the ground.A car parked right next to us.. There were maybe seven cars in the lot and people here and there. His wallet was intact and nothing missing. :)
