Our goal is to make Sleep Under the Stars a safe and fun event for everyone. To make this possible we ask that you follow these simple rules.
No personal campfires, or charcoal grills.
We will tend the campfires and keep them going. you are welcome to bring a small gas grill, your cooler, and you may roast marshmallows and hot dogs at the campfire.
We know you love your pets and that they are part of the family, but this is just not the appropriate event for them. To keep them safe, and for the safety of your fellow campers, please leave them at home.

This is a family event, and the use of alcohol and drugs is prohibited in all New Castle County parks. Persons violating this rule will be handled by our Department of Public Safety.

The Golden Rule. Treat everyone the way you would like to be treated.
