Can't get enough of the postcard-perfect Delaware Coast? Book an RV in Sussex County and you'll be within striking distance of several other popular state parks, including Holts Landing, Cape Henlopen, Fenwick Island, and Beach Plum Island. At under three hours from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia, Delaware Seashore is deservedly popular with city slickers looking to escape the city scene. The park is also a four-hour drive from the Big Apple, which unlocks a unique chance to camp in an RV near New York City.

Getting Outdoors

With 2,825 acres to discover, there are plenty of opportunities to get outdoors in Delaware Seashore State Park. The eastern side of the island is fringed by six miles of sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and sandcastle building. Two beaches are patrolled by lifeguards and offer changing rooms, showers, concession stands, and beach gear rentals.

To the west, the calm waters of Rehoboth and Indian River Bays are ideal for watersports like boating, jet skiing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and sailing. For an adventurous day on the water, rent a kayak and explore the salt marshes. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean and the Inland Bays, Delaware Seashore State Park boasts some of the best fishing on the East Coast. Launch a boat from the Indian River Marina, cast a line from the banks of the inlet, or pick up a permit and drive your car onto one of the surf-fishing beaches. Delaware Seashore is also one of the best spots in the state for crabbing and clamming.

Enrich your state park RV camping experience by attending one of the ranger-led summer programs. Entertaining and educational, activities include guided marsh hikes, bay seining, beach clam bakes, crab feasts, and sandcastle contests. For tasty eats and stunning ocean views, head to the Big Chill Beach Club at the South Inlet Day Use Area. On a sunny day, the outdoor deck is the perfect place to enjoy locally caught fish and freshly shucked oysters.

Camping at Delaware Seashore State Park

RV camping at Delaware Seashore offers a unique chance to enjoy an extended stay in the park. The park operates two campgrounds, both with picturesque locations on the Indian River Inlet. The North Inlet campground is well-equipped for motorhome camping, with 88 serviced sites featuring full hookups for electricity, water, and sewer. The larger South Inlet campground offers more than 150 full-hookup sites, as well as 86 non-serviced sites for campers in search of an off-the-grid experience.

Like most state park RV campgrounds, Delaware Seashore offers creature comforts like hot showers and flush toilets. Most sites feature picnic tables and fire rings — perfect for enjoying your meals outdoors. Around half of the sites are pull-through and can accommodate RVs of up to 45 feet, which makes Delaware Seashore a great option for larger rigs. Pets are welcome; just be sure to keep your dog leashed.

Exploring the Area

Stretching for 28 miles along the Atlantic Ocean, the Delaware Coast is dotted with characterful beach towns, sandy beaches, and scenic lookouts. RV camping at Delaware Seashore State Park is a great opportunity to explore this corner of the First State and visit hidden gems like Lewes, a historic seaside town founded by Dutch whalers in 1631. A stroll around the walkable downtown will reveal historic buildings, colorful cafes, and farm-to-table restaurants. While you're in the area, zip over to Cape Henlopen State Park, a 4,000-acre reserve with sandy beaches, pine forests, and lush wetlands.

A quick 15-minute drive up the coast, the town is home to attractions like the Funland amusement park and Jungle Jim's water playground. Hit the shops on bustling Rehoboth Avenue or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the mile-long boardwalk. In summer, the town hosts an excellent farmers' market.
