Visitors are reminded that access for wildlife observation, photography, and fishing is only allowed in designated areas of the refuge and from designated access points.
Visitors may not canoe, kayak or boat in Unit 2 (the area between Fowler Beach Road and Prime Hook Beach Road). In Unit 3 (the area between Prime Hook Beach Road and Broadkill Beach Road), visitors who are canoeing, kayaking, or boating, are restricted to the mainstem of Prime Hook Creek. In Unit 1 (the area between Fowler Beach Road and Slaughter Beach Road), visitors must stay within the mainstem of Slaughter Canal.
Currently, the easternmost three miles of Prime Hook Creek is closed indefinitely for safety reasons due to low water levels. Access to Prime Hook Creek is only from the boat ramps located near Route 1 at Brumbley’s Family Park, at the Prime Hook Wildlife Area on Little Neck Road, and at Foords Landing in the Headquarters Area. The boat ramp at the Refuge Office is currently closed.
Please call the refuge office at 302.684.8419 if you have any questions.
