10 Reasons to check out Massey’s Landing Resort

The Resort at Massey’s Landing  in Millsboro, Del. is one of the premier camping destinations in the region. Build from the ground up with the recreational traveler in mind, the resort provides as much or as little to do as you might feel you need. 

Although the resort is extremely popular with RVers, there are plenty of cottages for people who want the experience but lack the gear. One of the things that makes Massey’s Landing so popular is that although you have access to the Delaware beaches and nightlife in only a short drive, you feel as if you’re in the middle of nowhere. If you want to spend your week (or long weekend) without leaving the resort, there still is plenty to do.

There are a million reasons to plan to vacation at Massey’s Landing Resort, here are our favorite 10:

Indian River Bay access

A place to paddle out into the wilderness

The canoe and kayak launch at Massey’s Landing Resort gives you an idea how peaceful the place is. Motorized vessels are launched from elsewhere to preserve the serenity here.

Gear to paddle out with

Although it’s great to have your own gear it isn’t always practical. Massey’s Landing provides access to kayak rentals as well as canoes, stand up paddle boards and lots of other watersport gear.

Spend the most laid-back afternoon you can imagine

The swim-up pool bar is one of the great exclusive amenities at Massey's Landing. It's the only one in the state and is a super-cool way to spend an afternoon.
