    Went there yesterday (5/31/2014) with some family and a group of friends to do some crabbing and clamming. We had some time to burn so we decided to take a walk along the trails in the wooded area (not along the shore line). BIG mistake. We didn’t get more than probably a few hundred feet into the woods and discovered the area was infested with deer ticks, more than I had ever seen before. We quickly raced out of the woods and did everything we could to get the little buggars off of us. If you decide to go hiking in this park (or any park for that matter), make sure to BRING INSECT AND TICK REPELLENT! Also be sure to check yourself very closely when you get out of the woods. A day later I had one crawl off my sneaker onto my hand as I was getting set up to treat them.Being from out of state, I didn’t realize how bad it was in the woods of Delaware. After getting home and doing some research, I found out that DE had the highest rate of reported Lyme Disease in 2013. Be safe out there people, Lyme Disease is no laughing matter!The crabbing and clamming part was fun but I’ll be keeping my distance from the woods unless I make sure every part of me is properly treated with some sort of insect repellent.
