Between the trails, festivals and wildlife, there’s plenty to occupy a family at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes. It’s also the place many locals choose for a beach day. There are beaches on the ocean and Delaware Bay, a fishing pier, shellfish beds, camping areas and lots of neat stuff left from the days of Fort Miles. “We spend a lot of time there with the kids and with other families,” guest critic Mike Meoli says. “The kids do skimboarding camp, and we like that it’s a little more secluded.”
If it’s spring or summer, the guest critics Cullens are probably cycling at Cape Henlopen State Park. There are four biking trails: the 3.3-mile bike trail; the 1.5-mile Walking Dunes Trail; the 5.2-mile Junction & Breakwater Trail; and the 0.7-mile Gordons Pond Trail.
