REVIEWS OF Blackbird State Forest IN Delaware

Joe Macaron

Great easy 2.2 mile hiking trail well marked with portapoty and water spigot in the parking lot. Be aware of hunting seasons! Check website before you hike. Catch and release fishing pond very short walk from parking lot. You might even see some deer and horseback riders. There is also a 4+ mile Blue Loop Trail.

Anthony Krueger

A pleasant surprise. Easy and well maintained trail. We hiked for two miles through the woods. We will come back for the 4 mile trail next.

I haven't been to all the areas yet but we moved to the area looking for new local trails and found this place. Very nice, you can tell it was built long long ago as per the same tree species in the main area, so I wish they'd introduce some variety as it's better for the habitat. But it's a beautiful place, feel like it definitely needs some love but I feel like if they advertised the camping more they could make some money for renovations. But you can't tell what all they have there or what each parking lot is, it's just blackbird park. Had to figure it out myself what it was. But we love getting into nature right down the road so 5 stars for sure. Hope it gets some improvements.

Nice place to tent camp but the porta-potty's are not near the camp sites

Excellent place to camp but need a permit. Free now but they will start charging a fee soon.

Awe inspiring trees of all styles, shapes, sizes along trails of silence to a meadow pond of Lilly pads and wildlife. Thank you, Kesha and all!

I’m always walking my dogs at Blackbird or Oak Hill. Several different trails to enjoy!

Alex Ajg

Great and peaceful

Edward Cummings Jr

Kenneth Pace

Awesome trails for jogging, biking and horseback riding!

Alaina Zulli

We hiked the blue trail. 4.5 miles, totally flat, easy to walk. There are no spectacular views, but the foliage is nice. The ranger was extra friendly and helpful.

Dustin Cadmus

Tiffany Whiteman-Radcliffe

Very peaceful

Liz Lund

Camp here, especially if all the nearby campgrounds are booked! It is very low key.

Overall, BSF provides some very nice hiking opportunities. My main complaints are the bugs from spring through fall, and that many trails are low-lying so they flood a lot if there's heavy rain. If you venture outside the Tybout Tract (where the main office and trails are) to the other tracts, be prepared for rougher trails and a few parking roads that would do best with an AWD vehicle (the Meadows Tract in particular). I'd like to see maybe one tract set aside as NO HUNTING year-round, so hikers and families can still enjoy the forest through the whole year without worrying about hunters.

Raymond Cool

Great trails for hiking and cross country running. This is another scenic place in middle Delaware.

Brett Bodofsky

I always have an awesome experience here! There is always pre-chopped wood ready to be lit on fire. The ranger is super friendly too. Just be sure to get their early to fill out a form to ensure yourself a camp spot. You can't just show up and camp, you'll run in to problems.

George Schuler

The forest was beautiful, but we went there to fish, the employee told us the Blackbird Lake was a private lake, so is was a bust. If you don't fish, then it would be a nice day out.

pat man

Walking trails well maintained. Nice picnic facility

Zane Excell

Wonderful woodland trails, plenty of areas to visit. Mostly flat, making it a great place to start getting into hiking or get back into shape for more intense trails. We did 13 miles of trail on our visit, and would definitely return to see what the others tracks of land have to offer.

Wayne Birk

Nice place to get out of the house

Beautiful Forest with peaceful catch and release ponds! Lots of trails! It’s a good size forest but I hope they build a lake and add more land and trees before the area gets built up!

Robert Jones

Courtney McDowell

JJ Harrison

Nicely marked trails!

Catina Marie

Justin Zacheis

Not too bad, they have a pavilion and Little Grill for parties cookout and such, the fishing ponds need to be redone, need more trails and campsites, and could use more things for people to do, but not a bad place

Doug Eubanks

Wasn't anything there to see.

Alex Blue

Very peaceful here. I come here to walk and ride bikes when I have time and it's always a nice experience. Very clean and maintained.

Phillip Perkins


One of my favorite forests in DE! The trails are well marked yet offer many opportunities to get lost, which I may have ended up doing. It's all good though as that only added to the excitement of the trip. There are small outposts located where you could stop and rest also. Overall a great place to hike!

Kathy Bin-Yusif

Beautiful and serene.

Ronda Ramsey

Troy Saltiel

A very buggy place in the summer, but it definitely takes you out into quiet nature.

Kim Humphreys
