Lakes in Delaware


Delaware's small, but that doesn't mean it lacks bodies of water of interest to lake enthusiasts. In fact, Delaware State Forest alone contains 13 ponds and lakes! Six of them are deep glacial lakes, seven of them are man-made, and most of them offer excellent boating and fishing opportunities, as do many of the streams and rivers that feed into them.

In addition to Delaware State Forest, the state's other 19 forest areas also contain bodies of water that are well worth visiting, such as the wetlands of William Penn State Forest, located in the Ruth Zimmerman Natural Area. For fishers, there are the cold-water creeks of Forbes State Forest, which are filled with trout. And those who love boating will enjoy Clear Shade Creek in Gallitzin State Forest, which is also home to Clark Run Gorge, known for its spectacular waterfalls and other unique geographical features.
