The lush greenery and sparkling streams of White Clay Creek State Park
offer a refreshing change of pace from the encroaching urban development
of New Castle County. Whether it's an activity at the Carpenter Recreation
Area, a retreat into the pristine White Clay Creek Preserve, a hike along
the peaceful trails of Possum Hill, or just a few hours of fishing in
the creek, visitors of all ages will enjoy the natural beauty of the White
White Clay Creek State Park was created in 1968 when the state purchased
24 acres of land. The park has since grown to 3384 scenic acres in the continuing effort to preserve and protect
the natural resources of the valley.
Of the many activities available at the park, hiking is one of the most
popular. Thirty-seven miles of trails lead explorers to scenic vistas
overlooking lush valleys and impressive rock outcrops.
