Brandywine Creek State Park

41 Adams Dam Rd
302-577-3534

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.

Brandywine Creek State Park is a beautiful park with VERY limited access and parking. They clearly only want a small number of the public using this public resource. Yesterday, July 4th, was hot, a holiday and I'm one sure one of their busier days. Cops were everywhere. Driving around with bullhorns telling everyone parked on the sides of the roads (because the few spots the park offers were occupied) they would be ticketed and possibly towed. Nice. By my estimate, there were 7 or 8 visitors for every available parking space.

Great park not to far from my home. I can't wait to get out there more and shred the mountain bike trails. There are quite a few. And let me stress one more thing. Buy the DE state park sticker for your car. It's worth it. Dont be a scum bag and do everything you can to not buy one. Like parking in the street and walking into the park. That money goes into maintaining the parks. There I said my piece. Now go have some state park fun you kooks!

We had a great time walking the trails here. It was such a beautiful day. We got a chance to go down to the creek, my boys loved just throwing rocks in the stream. Once the trees come into full bloom it will be that much more of a jewel. We love our Delaware state parks. It's so worth the membership fee.

The 14 miles of trails are lovely to walk. The nature preserves are beautiful and well maintained and the rangers are friendly. A nice way to spend a summer day and aside from the parking fee, essentially free way to have a nice summer outdoor "adventure" if you swim and tube.

I just recently took a job in the area and love all the walking paths it has to offer. I had a tough time originally finding a place to park as the website it not very clear and the roads get a bit confusing. but once you find a place to park it is great.
