Help us protect our trees by preventing the spread of harmful insect pests to Delaware's parks and forests. Due to recent quarantines and threats of invasive insects that are detrimental to Delaware’s agriculture, outside firewood is no longer permitted in Delaware State Park campgrounds. Firewood is available for purchase at all State Park campgrounds.
Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) is an invasive insect that is dangerous and destructive to the agriculture, horticulture and forests in the State of Delaware and surrounding states. Specific targets of this insect are grapevines, fruit trees, hops and trees. The SLF will lay eggs on any flat surface such as tree trunks, vehicles, boats, grills, bicycles, and coolers, so they can be easily transported. The Delaware Department of Agriculture has quarantined eleven zip code areas in Delaware to eradicate, control, and prevent the spread of SLF in Delaware and to surrounding states. Thirteen counties in southeastern Pennsylvania and Mercer, Warren and Hunterdon Counties in New Jersey also have quarantine requirements. If you live or will travel through these counties on your way to camp in Delaware State Parks please check with your state agriculture department for specific quarantine regulations.
Several other invasive insects may be spread by transporting firewood. Emerald Ash Borer, Asian Longhorn Beetle, Southern Bark Beetle and Sirex Wood Wasp all pose a serious threat to native trees and forest ecosystems. You can protect our valuable forest resources by not transporting firewood.
The most effective way that campers can help stop the spread of these invasive insects is to check your vehicles and gear for SLF egg masses and to refrain from transporting wood, including firewood. When you travel to a campground, use the firewood that is sold there to prevent the spread of these destructive insects.
Delaware State Parks are here for your enjoyment. Please be considerate of others and dispose of litter properly. Remember...take only pictures and leave only footprints.
Campfires and open fires may be banned in selected campgrounds during extremely dry conditions. Please contact the campground immediately prior to your visit for fire status. Charcoal fires in grills are permitted during bans unless otherwise noted.
Campfires should be contained within the fire ring, and should not be left unattended.
Campfires are not permitted at Delaware Seashore State Park at any time.
You may change a reservation once at no charge. For each subsequent change, a fee of $10 will be charged. Changes may be a date or site change at any state park that offers family camping, cottages, cabins, or yurts. The transaction amount must remain the same as the original reservation charge to qualify as a change.
Changes to your reservation may be made online, or through the call center unless it is same day at which point please call the park office.
In the event Delaware State Parks must close a park or campground (due to storm or other emergency); the affected campers will be given a refund of the unused portion of their reservation. If the campground remains open and the camper elects to leave, the action will be treated as an Early Departure and no refund will be given.
Information about staying with your pet at a Delaware State Park campground, cottage or cabin is available on our Pets in the Park page.
