Come to White Clay Creek to escape the haunting development of New Castle County. The lush greenery of the park and the sparkling streams offer a refreshing change and countless opportunities for fun and relaxation outdoors.
Hiking is one of the most popular activities in the Park. Thirty-seven miles of hiking trails lead explorers to historic sites and viewpoints overlooking lush valleys and impressive rock outcrops. Hikers and mountain bikers can drive through the Middle Run Valley Natural Area to Possum Hill or hike the Pomeroy Rail Trail to the footbridge over White Clay Creek. White Clay Creek offers numerous activities throughout the year.
The Nature Center hosts entertaining and interesting public programs, and visitors can enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, bird watching or playing disc golf. Families can enjoy the large picnic area and pavilion for a reunion or a cozy Barbecue with friends followed by an evening concert or other special events during the summer.
Tobogganing and cross-country skiing are among the many winter activities offered in the Park. Locals can sign up for the White Clay Creek State Park mailing list! You will receive Updates on upcoming programs and events, announcements as well as Job and volunteer opportunities.
