description Just 15 minutes west of the Atlantic Ocean lays a wonderful hidden treasure of Delaware's inland bays. The 203-acres area contains a variety of beautiful landscapes from bay shore beach to grassy fields and hardwood forests. Take the family for a day of fishing, clamming, or crabbing. Historically, the shores of the inland bays were home to Native Americans, who harvested seafood and hunted in the surrounding marshes and forests. After the European settlers arrived, agriculture developed slowly around the "little bays". In 1965 the first parcel of land was transferred to the State Park Commission forming Holts Landing State Park. Tucked away on the south shore of the Indian River Bay, this small park showcases a terrific crabbing pier and has a convenient boat ramp. Take a short hike on the Sea Hawk Nature Trail through grassy marshlands and under a canopy of hardwood trees - you're likely to spot a heron or osprey flying overhead!
