State Parks start charging again this week

Feb 27, 2018

DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation says the 2018 fee season gets underway March 1.

Vehicles registered in Delaware will be charged $4 for inland parks and $5 for ocean parks starting next month. Out of state cars will be charged $8 and $10 respectively.

A seasonal pass costs Delawareans $35.


DNREC officials say the funds go toward maintaining the sixteen state parks and the more than 2,600 acres of state parks land.  Entrance and other fees cover about 65% of the cost of operating the parks.


Fee season runs through November 30th.
