Delaware state parks include:

  • Alapocas Run State Park (Urban)
  • Bellevue State Park (Historical)
  • Brandywine Creek State Park (Scenic)
  • Brandywine Zoo
  • Cape Henlopen State Park (Beaches)
  • Delaware Seashore State Park (Beaches)
  • Fenwick Island State Park (Beaches)
  • Fort Delaware State Park (Historical)
  • Fort DuPont State Park (Historical)
  • Fox Point State Park (Scenic)
  • Holts Landing State Park (Beaches)
  • Killens Pond State Park (Freshwater)
  • Lums Pond State Park (Freshwater)
  • Port Penn Interpretive Center (Historical)
  • Trap Pond State Park (Freshwater)
  • White Clay Creek State Park (Scenic)
  • Wilmington State Park (Urban)

The pass only covers park entrance fees. It is not valid for anything else. I called the parks and recreation office to verify this because I was hoping the pass could be used to get into the water park by Killens Pond. Unfortunately, I was told that the pass cannot be used to get into Brandywine Zoo, Fort Delaware State Park, the water park at Killens Pond or State Line Beach. It can only be used for park entrance fees. That’s disappointing, but this is still a very good deal!
