    Special Interest: BeachCampingHikingOutdoor Play

    On-leash dogs are permitted at Cape Henlopen State Park (Lewes, DE). Hiking, tent camping, and biking are always permitted within the park, but dogs must be on leash.

    Camping rules for pets can be found here. Don’t have your own bike? You can borrow one from the park and bike on the many paved paths around the park, but dogs still have to be on leash!

    Dogs are allowed on the beach between October 1 to April 30. During peak season (May 1 to September 30), beach access is restricted to surf fishing areas only.

    Dogs are not permitted on the bathhouse boardwalk, picnic areas, bird nesting area, and buildings. You can find detailed specifics and maps on where dogs are allowed here. If you go to Delaware State Parks often, consider purchasing an annual pass.

    If you are up by New Jersey, you can bike down with your dog via the Cape May – Lewes Ferry.
