Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Parks and Recreation | Sussex County | Date Posted: Monday, April 9, 2018



Delaware State Parks has announced closures of facilities at Cape Henlopen State Park and at Holts Landing State Park.

End of Cape Henlopen Fishing Pier Closes

DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation announced today it has closed a 20-foot portion of the Cape Henlopen fishing pier indefinitely due to ice damage that occurred this winter. The area closed encompasses an approximately 20-foot section of the end of the pier. Engineers evaluated the extent of the damage and determined that the end of the pier must be closed immediately.

Holts Landing Boat Ramp Closes

The Division also announced it will close the boat ramp and adjacent parking lot at Holts Landing State Park later this month on weekdays while renovations are made to improve the parking lot and add 36 new boat trailer parking spaces. The boat ramp is scheduled to be closed during the week while construction is underway but will be open on weekends. Closures will begin in mid-April and are estimated to continue until late May, weather permitting.
