Tower Beach is the Best!

So, we read many reviews on this site before we visited Delaware Seashore State Park. We KNEW it was near the beach so we didn't expect a tree on the place...and there wasn't. That's fine if you know why you are there. It's a beach! We had a wonderful experience there. The bathrooms were very clean as many have mentioned.... More

We visited Tower Beach during our stay and it was easy to get to, just as nice as Cape Henlopen -- but with the added benefit of cell phone service while on the beach -- with the same pier snack bar and restrooms/showers. Go early . . . it fills up quickly.

Overall, we really do love this campground. The only issue that we had was the amount of trash, cigarette butts, fishing lines surrounding the campground and near the waterways. It's a very quiet place and the view of the bridge at night is quite cool. There was quite a bit of potholes in the roadways to the sites. The staff... More

We loved this beach. We chose the entrance away from the bath house which was less crowded. This allowed us to spread out and gave our boys room to play in the sand without getting sound on others. We also had a direct line of vision from our umbrella spot directly down to the water without having to walk through... More

My wife and I wanted to fish and relax on the beach.. this was the place to go. you can fish here and swim, it is not crowded like the regular beach . there is a 10.00 charge and you must have a fishing license to fish in tidal waters. all in all its worth it. nice beach and good... More

I stayed at this park for a 5 day long camping trip. This is the first time that my family has been camping to the beach and, let me say, we were not disappointed! The camp ground and its bathrooms are kept clean, are quiet and are a short walk to the beach. The beach, the inlet and the bridge... More

If you want the beach without the smell of Thrashers fries, check out the sand at this park. Umbrella and chair rentals are available, as are regularly cleaned porta-potties, and if you bike in there is no fee.

It is easy to understand why Delaware State Parks are voted number 1 in the nation. They are beautifully maintained and expertly staffed.

For a nominal fee of $10.00 for out- of- staters, you have access to some fabulous beaches! Most of the park has lifeguards in season; and the surf fishing in the remote sections can be rewarding. You do not have to put up with the terrible traffic in Rehoboth or Dewey, and you have access to really good eating at... More

What a great place to go for a day trip to the beach! $5 parking, bathrooms, showers, and snack bar. Extremely easy beach access.
