Pitch your tent in a meadow adjacent to Brandywine Creek State Park (BCSP) woods and its trail system, connected also to the First State National Historic Park.   Miles of hiking right outside your tent.  Only yards away from Brandywine Creek which offers fishing, wading, tubing, canoeing and kayaking. Brandywine Creek State Park also offers special programs and offers a disk golf course amidst the amazing rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley. The tent sites offer the utmost privacy, you will be surrounded by Nature and gorgeous views. Glory in the stars, moon and fireflies at night.  The sites are located feet from the Park trail, which are closed to the public from sundown to 8 a.m. Dogs on leash only.

For tubing, kayaking or canoeing on Brandywine Creek:  You can park one car up at Smith’s bridge (free, but farther float) or Thompson’s Bridge (shorter tube float of about 1.5-2 hrs and $8 to park for out-of-staters ($4 Delaware). Slower current from Thompsons to Rockland Bridge, but you can float right down to exit at the Rockland Dam, which is about a 5 minute walk from the campsite. NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED IN THE PARK ITSELF OR ON BRANDYWINE CREEK.  If you do not have your own canoes, tubes or kayaks, check out Wilderness Canoes located nearby - they run canoing, kayaking and tubing trips on the river and negate the need for two vehicles.

Firewood & fire ring provided (please keep it reasonable). Picnic table.  Bring bug repellent.

FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE IT IS POSSIBLE TO HAVE A TENT, COTS, AND OTHER AMENITIES PROVIDED FOR YOU AND SET UP FOR YOU UPON ARRIVAL.  Please just inquire. DOES REQUIRE ADVANCE NOTICE.


HERE IS THE OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION OF BRANDYWINE CREEK STATE PARK:

Where Piedmont Streams Tumble Down Gentle Slopes

This 933-acre park is divided by grey stone walls built of local stone in the late 1800's. At that time the property was a dairy farm owned by the du Pont family. This unique area became a state park in 1965, one of the first parks in the nation to be purchased with Land and Water Conservation Funds. 

Tulip Poplars and Freshwater Marsh

Delaware's first two nature preserves are located within Brandywine Creek State Park: Tulip Tree Woods, a majestic stand of 190-year-old tulip poplar, and Freshwater Marsh. An extensive meadow management program, active bluebird population program, and variety of habitats make Brandywine Creek State Park an outstanding place to see wildflowers, songbirds, deer, and other flora and fauna. Many species of hawks can be seen migrating over the valley from mid-September to mid-November.

Hiking, Fishing and Special Events

The park maintains 14 miles of trails for fitness, wildlife observation, and photography; try the Rocky Run Trail or the Brandywine Trail that winds along the creek. The open fields are excellent for picnics, kite flying, and disc golf; and in the winter, for sledding and cross-country skiing. Popular seasonal events such as the Halloween Haunted Trail are held for your enjoyment.

Anglers can fish for small mouth bass, bluegill, and crappie in Brandywine Creek, and for trout in Wilsons Run. (A fishing license and trout stamp are required). Canoeing and tubing are also popular ways to experience the Brandywine. Canoeing is offered through the park's interpretive programs; please check out the Park's program pages or call (302)655.5740 for a schedule.

This site is amazing! Quiet, peaceful, overlooking the park, & a short walk down the trail to the Brandywine. It’s a gem of a campsite. Thank you Dee, for opening your property to us.

Dee’s place is epic! I went with a group of friends for an overnight trip. The site is in a big field, right up against Brandywine Creek State Park. Clean and extremely private. They left a big pile of firewood for us, some stools to sit on, and a small table. Dee was very nice/helpful getting us to the location. Everything you need for a great camping trip. Special Bonus...at night the feild filled up with fireflies which was beautiful to watch!

There are a bunch of hiking trails right next to the site (which we unfortunately didn’t have time to explore...but saw lots of people on them). This site is especially perfect if you’re tubing / kayaking on the Brandywine. You can park one car up at Smith’s bridge (free, but farther float) or Thompson’s Bridge (shorter float of about 1.5-2hrs; and $8 to park...also slower current),, and float right down to exit at the Dam, which is about a 5 minute walk from the campsite. Just make sure you don’t have any cans of beer or bottles of booze with you, as the rangers will be strict if you’re caught with obvious alcohol on the river!

Also FYI the dirt road leading up to the site is a bit hairy for car traffic , and there’s a fairly steep incline. We had mid sized SUVs and didn’t have a problem.. But if you have a pretty low riding vehicle, a trailer, or car you don’t want getting dirty...you may want to plan to park at the foot of the path and haul your gear a few mins to the site. Also definitely some bug activity, so bring repellent.

I would highly recommend this site!
