Picture of Fort Delaware

Fort Delaware State Park


Park History

The State of Delaware deeded Pea Patch Island, located in the Delaware River between Delaware and New Jersey, to the U.S. government in 1813, and construction of Fort Delaware was completed around 1859.

Arriving at Pea Patch Island

Originally built to protect the ports of Wilmington and Philadelphia, Pea Patch Island also became a Union prison camp during the Civil War, housing up to as many as 12,595 Confederate prisoners of war at one time. Manned only briefly during World Wars I and II, the island and fort were finally abandoned and declared surplus property in 1944, when ownership was transferred back to the State of Delaware. Fort Delaware became a state park in 1951.

Fort Delaware Today

Today, costumed interpreters take you back to the summer of 1864 -- tour the parade ground, officers' quarters, barracks, kitchen, blacksmith shop and ordnance room, hear stories of great escapes, and watch as the Fort's Columbiad cannon fires a live gunpowder charge! Engage with fort historians dressed in period clothing, and hear stories of those who lived at the fort in 1864. Fort Delaware is well-known for “ghostly” activity and has been featured on Ghost Hunters and other television shows. Paranormal tours are offered in the fall.

Escape Fort Delaware: The Disloyalty Files

Can you escape Fort Delaware? It’s 1864, and you are a prisoner at Fort Delaware during the Civil War. You have been arrested on the presumption of committing a disloyal act again against the Union. Can you prove your loyalty and escape the island before time runs out? Try this new twist on an escape room in this fun, interactive program at Fort Delaware. Find hidden objects, interact with costumed interpreters, and solve hidden puzzles to complete the game and earn your freedom. This immersive experience is perfect for partners and groups to learn about Delaware history while having fun.

Escape Fort Delaware is offered on the dates listed below. Tickets may be purchased for $50.00 online or by phone by calling 877-987-2757.

The Heronry

Pea Patch Island is a summer home to nine different species of herons, egrets, and ibis. The remote marshes provide an outstanding habitat for one of the largest wading bird nesting areas on the East Coast. A hiking trail and its observation platform provide opportunities for photography and nature study. The Prison Camp Trail traverses part of this area and features a bird observation tower along the trail.
