Just in time for summer! Cape Henlopen renovations announced by Governor Carney, Secretary Garvin
CAPE HENLOPEN – Governor John Carney and DNREC Secretary Shawn M. Garvin announced renovations at Cape Henlopen State Park May 22 highlighting the newly improved campground and new amenities at the park’s Seaside Nature Center and Fort Miles Historical Area.
“Cape Henlopen State Park is a treasure – one of Delaware’s natural, recreational and historical gems,” said Governor Carney. “With more than 1.7 million visitors a year, this park is a major attraction and greatly contributes to the state’s $3.1 billion tourism industry. These campground improvements and new amenities will attract even more visitors, living in Delaware and outside our state.”
“Cape Henlopen is the place for campers and visitors to be this summer,” said DNREC Secretary Shawn M. Garvin. “The improvements to the campground, the Seaside Nature Center and Fort Miles all serve to make the unique experience of visiting Cape Henlopen State Park better than ever. This would not have been possible without the partnership of the National Park Service, our state legislators and our parks visitors.”
