Del. Campgrounds Part of Major Project
There’s no one more excited for the completion of the $10 million worth of enhancements to the Delaware Seashore State Park at the Indian River Inlet than state park superintendent Doug Long.
“I’ve been waiting patiently for almost 10 years,” he said during a press conference with state and local officials at the Indian River Marina on Monday (Dec. 16) Delaware.Newszap.com reported.
He added that many of the visitors who have been coming to the park for decades are excited too.
“This is a special place — p.s. don’t mess it up,” he said of what he’s heard from visitors.
The improvements to the state parks at the inlet are phase three of the construction associated with the $150 million Indian River Inlet Bridge that opened in May 2012.
New features on the north side of the inlet include a campground, campground bathhouse, a promenade/sidewalk with shaded seating, a multi-use path, a bathhouse for day visitors and an outdoor shower.
New features on the south side of the inlet include an expanded campground, an upgrade to campground bathhouses, an amphitheater, a promenade/sidewalk with shaded seating, a new entrance to the day area, a multi-use path, and a DART bus stop.
Between the north and south sides, there will be more than 170 family camping sites and nearly 900 parking spots.
