Camping near Wilmington guide

Overview

Offering a mix of rolling hills, dense woodlands, and serene lakes, Wilmington camping is a nature lover’s delight. A short drive north of town, Brandywine Creek State Park is a local gem with 14 miles of hiking trails and terrific trout fishing in Wilson’s Run. Canoe and kayak rentals are available too. Stay at a private RV park nearby with amenities such as full hookups, dump stations, hot showers, and free wifi. Also near Williamsburg and Kirkwood is Lums Pond State Park, home to Delaware’s largest freshwater pond. Anglers can reel in crappie, bluegill, perch, pickerel, and striped bass, while the rest of the group goes horseback riding on the shared-use trail in the mature woodlands of the nature preserve. Along with RV sites and tent camping options, the park also offers yurt rentals. Spring and fall are great for camping near Wilmington, with opportunities to enjoy the beauty of blooming flowers and fall foliage among thick forests and sprawling meadows.
