DNREC Opens Newly-Completed Little Creek Boating And Fishing Access Area

DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife officially opened the newly-completed Little Creek Boating and Fishing Access Area east of Dover.

 The new access area consists of a paved, single-lane boat ramp with a floating aluminum courtesy dock for boats that includes a kayak launch, an 80-foot aluminum fishing and crabbing pier, and a paved parking lot with up to 21 parking spaces for vehicles and boat trailers. A Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police patrol boat and the Little Creek Volunteer Fire Company emergency response boat will also be docked at a separate dock at the facility.

 Funding for the $1.9 million project comes from a federal Sport Fish Restoration grant administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, revenues from state boat registration fees, Delaware Bayshore Initiative funds, and $200,000 in state Bond Bill funds.

 The new boating and fishing access area is managed by DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife and supports the Delaware Bayshore Initiative by enhancing outdoor recreation access and supporting local communities.
