Delaware State Park Passes Required In March
The winter free for all is over in Delaware Start Parks. Every year in the winter the parks are wide open to any and all that would like to visit them, this starts on November 30th. Some of the in-park features are not open to the general public without a pass or entrance fee, such as the Brandywine zoo. The parks themselves remain open to the general public without a pass from November 30th to March 1st.
It is time to get your beach tags updated, which also double as a park pass for any Delaware State park. The new retro beach tag is now available for surf fishing.
The yearly pass is available for just visiting the parks and of course you can always pay daily per visit. If you still want to use a Delaware State Park for free all you have to do is walk into the park or ride your bicycle.
The park fee is really a parking pass for a vehicle, you can load as many people as you want, and drive them into a park with your daily fee or pass. Out of state visitors still have to pay double the fee of state residents. You can get your passes online or at any state park office. Prices are also listed below. Have a great summer season we will see you i the sandbox!
