Camping at the Indian River Inlet has been a popular family tradition for many years, even before the land became a state park. The waterfront property, ample fishing opportunities, and its proximity to the beach have made the Delaware Seashore State Park campground a highly attractive location for affordable beach vacations for generations. We will be celebrating the inlet all evening with a beach bonfire, live music, guided night hikes of the bridge, AND the exclusive opportunity to camp directly on the beach.

Update: The festivities will begin at 5 p.m. at the North Inlet Day Area. Chorduroy Band, a local Delaware favorite, will be performing from 5 – 8 p.m. Food trucks from Rosenfelds Jewish Deli and Zogg’s Sea Hogg will be serving food for purchase from 5 – 8 p.m. There will also be a beach bonfire from 6:30-9:30, and guided bridge hikes at 7, 8, and 9 p.m. To top it all off, the first 300 participants will have the opportunity to make their own Delaware Seashore 50th anniversary tote bag.
Scharle says that families have been coming to Delaware Seashore State Park to camp on the beach long before the land even became a state park. To throw in some nostalgia, park staff are allowing visitors an exclusive, 1-night opportunity to camp directly on the beach. Unfortunately, the beach camping aspect of this event has been so popular that all sites are now booked and they are now on a waiting list.
