About the Park

Historically, the shores of the inland bays were home to native Americans, who harvested seafood and hunted in the surrounding marshes and forests. After the European settlers arrived, agriculture developed slowly around the "little bays." The property that is now Holts Landing State Park has a long recorded history as a small family farm. The Holt family maintained a farm with a bayshore boat landing on this site until 1957, when the property was sold to the state highway department. Then, in 1965, the first parcel of land was transferred to the State Park Commission, forming Holts Landing State Park.

Fishing, Clamming and Crabbing

If seafood is on the menu, wade the shallow waters of the Indian River Bay in search of mussels or clams, take your boat out on the bay for a day of fishing, or drop a line for blue crabs from the park's crabbing pier, the only pier in Delaware built specifically for crabbing. Fishing permit required.

Paddling, Picnics and Family Fun

Holts Landing contains a surprising variety of beautiful landscapes, from bay shore beach to grassy fields and hardwood forests, with trails for walking and jogging. The bay waters are great for paddling by kayak or stand-up paddleboard, and wind-surfing is also popular. A pavilion with a nearby fire pit offers is available for group gatherings like family reunions and company picnics. During the summer season, bring the family to enjoy Family Fun Nights and bayside concerts sponsored by the Friends of Holts Landing State Park.
