LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: kayak plan includes paddling the sheltered inland Little Assawoman Bay area and, exploring the salt marshes and Miller Creek. Our launch site, Sassafras Landing, is a sandy beach accessible at both high and low tide. Drive time from Wilmington is approximately 2 hours. Depending on the water temperatures there are small beach areas for swimming.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
A 12 foot or longer boat is strongly recommended. Please bring lunch, plenty of water, sunscreen and all required paddling gear. Dress appropriately for the wind and water temperature for the time of year. Without wind it is an easy paddle, but that is rare. It is recommended that the paddler be comfortable paddling against the wind and in slight chop. This can be a popular boating area and has a designated boating channel. Please be aware of motorized vehicles as they can stray from the channel.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
For Windy days and/or in colder weather a spray squirt is recommended. Assawomen State Wildlife Area consists of three large land tracts totaling 3,100 acres of wilderness near Frankford and Little Assawomen Bay and is a popular spot for migratory birds. There are turtle’s and plenty of jelly fish in the water.

Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
No shuttle required. Assawomen State Wildlife Area is free access, but is a “carry-in, carry-out” park. Please be aware that this is a high tick area.
