A campground at Delaware Seashore State Park

Campgrounds at Delaware State Parks will become available for rent on June 1 as Delaware lifts its ban on short-term rentals.

All state park campsites, cabins, cottages, and yurts have been closed since March 24 due to COVID-19, with all previously-made reservations during that time period being refunded.

Those with reservations through June 15 can still cancel with a full refund.

DNREC said all cabins and cottages will be sanitized by a professional cleaning service between rentals, to allow Parks staff to focus on cleaning common park areas.

Some nature centers and playgrounds will remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

All visitors to Delaware State Parks must carry a face mask or covering, and wear it in restrooms, enclosed spaces, and when you cannot maintain six feet from members of different households.

The reopening involves the following rentals: 

  • Cape Henlopen: Tents, RVs, cabins
  • Delaware Seashore: Tents, RVs
  • Indian River Marina: Cottages
  • Killens Pond: Tents, RVs, cabins
  • Lums Pond: Tents, RVs, yurts
  • Trap Pond: Tents, RVs, yurts, cabins
