Fort Delaware State Park Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 29 photos

Spend a few hours in the past...

Kids really like this place. They have people (volunteers) walking around in period costumes. If you have a civil war buff in your house, grab your hat and get to the dock!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:History, nice boat ride, nature trail.
  • Cons:Buggy on the trail, bring deep woods off!
  • In a nutshell:Nice family outing, or afternoon date!

    Great info on an overlooked attraction! I never got onto the island...actually boated up next to it..but off limits to boaters. Went to Delaware City too late for the last boat over! Great Delaware info pages too!

    I had no idea that there was so much stuff to do in Delaware! If i'm ever in the area i'll be sure to check out the civil war museum!

    I’m all in favor of family outings. As a matter of fact, I love spending time with my family, traveling around this vast nation of ours. Thanks for the tip.
