This state park has beautiful clean beaches and no smoking which was wonderful. We really enjoyed the wide open space between visitors. It did not feel like crowded beaches elsewhere. We will definitely be returning to this town and state park for sure.

After leaving OC we stopped here for a little while! The area was well maintained and the beach was clean. There is no boardwalk or anything, it's just a quaint little beach. Very nice place to avoid the crowds.

Gorgeous beach! Plus life guards and easy parking. The showers were a plus too. Beaches were clean with no trash.

This is a quiet, family friendly beach with several lifeguards (at least, during the summer season). There is a concession stand and bathroom facilities. Out of state residents pay a $10 daily fee while DE residents pay $5. The parking lot is not very big....More

Unsure why this is a Delaware State Park; it's mostly a beach or set of beaches on the ocean side of Fenwick Island which is south of Bethany Beach DE and just north of Ocean City, MD. It may be a bit quieter, but the...More

This is part of the Delaware State Parks and offers a guarded beach with bathhouse and concessions during the season. The fee is reasonable, especially if you are here often and buy a seasonal pass. We go here often both in season and off season....More

Love the Fenwick Island Beaches in Delaware. They are beautiful open spaces with loads of room to relax and enjoy they days in the sun.

Great park. The bathrooms and amenities are clean and comfortable. The food is very reasonable and there is good variety. There are no trash cans, so be prepared to carry your trash out with you. The beaches are clean and wide open. There is even...More

This section of beach is fabulous with the sand, dunes and waves. The bathhouses have showers, which is a nice touch. The parking lot is fairly large, and is self-pay in the off season. And they do allow pets on a leash. Much less crowded...More

Does the Delaware State Park Pass work for this? I read something about that it is not good for Fenwick State Line Beach Park -- is this the same thing?
