Open house on Cape Henlopen State Park campground renovation will be held on March 21
DOVER (March 15, 2016) – DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation will host a public open house to review renovation plans for the Cape Henlopen State Park campground. The open house will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, March 21, at the park’s Officer’s Club/Youth Camp 3,15099 Cape Henlopen Drive, Lewes, DE 19958.
In 2015, two state-of-the-art bathhouse facilities were added. This year, six new camping cabins are under construction. The existing cabins, combined with the new structures, are designed to create a “cabin village.” Cabins are expected to be available for occupancy in May.
The campground will close in September for the next phase of renovations. Improvements are expected to include:
· Reduction of asphalt
· Installation of landscaping
· Creation of back-in, pull-through and pop-up RV sites
· Installation of electric service
· Vehicular circulation improvement and paths linking the bathhouses within the campground
· Construction of a camp store with laundry and utility sinks
Completion of these renovations is scheduled for May 2017.
Visitors at the open house are invited to view the proposed renovation plans and provide comments to DNREC program staff.
For more information on the open house, contact Cindy Todd, Division of Parks & Recreation, 302-739-9210 or Cindy.Todd@state.de.us.
