Delaware Seashore State Park or Henlopen?

Can someone tell me what the difference is between these two state parks? E.g. is one less crowded? Does one have a "better" beach? Are there facilities at either one?

Thank you very much.

Delaware Seashore State PArk has indoor showers. They get mobbed late in the afternoon but it is better than no shower.
Can't help with Henlopen!

It's been years since I have been to Cape Henlopen SP but I can tell you that it is near Lewes, a great town to wander for shopping and restaurants.

Henlopen is nice and they have indoor shower facilites as well which is nice. There is food concessions & rentals located here. There is miles of paved bike trails throughout the park (wooded) and also an old WWII observation tower which is really cool. Henlopen is right outside the town of Lewes and the entrance is right near the Lewes-Cape May ferry. Seashore is a little south (20 min)and its more surrounded by water on all sides because it's like a barrier island but has amenities as well. Both beaches are nice but I would choose Henlopen just because it's close to stuff outside the park and it's more like a "park" and not some open island as seashore is. There is construction of a new bridge at Seashore and half of the parking (north end)will be closed until the bridge is complete (per their website).
