Prime Hook State Wildlife Area consists of almost 700 acres of wilderness near Milford and Delaware Bay. It sits between Slaughter Beach and Broadkill Beach, two community horseshoe crab sanctuaries.

Before your arrival, we recommend you consult the current schedule of hunting seasons. Or, if you're ever in doubt, simply wear hunters' orange or other bright colors. Also, please be advised that wildlife areas typically keep signage to a minimum, so a compass or GPS unit may be a wise thing to pack.
