The curve forms a natural bay that makes for lovely nearly waveless swimming and wading. The eastern side of the curve is a typical beach with big waves, fishing, swimming, and fun in the sun. The point itself is a restricted nature reserve for nesting birds.
There are several lookout towers leftover from World War II and one of them is open to the public. It’s worth the climb; the scenery is beautiful from the top and you get a real feeling for what Delaware beaches were like before the beach towns took over: sand dunes leading to pine forest.
The Park offers camping as well as hiking, biking, fishing, boating, and swimming.

He also uses the Park as an inspiration for a great surprise for Vanessa.
