The Lake and the Park

Come gaze out over the freshwater lake and watch the fish, or try to catch one for yourself off the fishing pier! Stroll through the manicured Italian garden at the west end of the lake, or head to the northeast section to find the shaded playground.

For picnicking or taking to the swings, head to the western side. You and your family can have a leisurely afternoon discovering all the beauty and fun that Lake Gerar has to offer! The main attraction here is the lake, which is perfect for all your water fun.

Fishing in Lake Gerar

Whether fishing is one of your favorite pastimes or you’re new to the hobby, Lake Gerar is the perfect place to spend the afternoon casting your line. The fishing pier is easily accessible and Is safe for children, so your whole party can get it on the fun! It’s completely away from the road while providing a great vantage point of the water. You’ll be able to find tons of freshwater fish in the lake for an afternoon full of action.

Boating at Lake Gerar

Unfortunately, due to the smaller size of the lake, boating is not prohibited at Lake Gerar. If you’re really looking to get out on the water, consider nearby attractions such as Dewey Beach Watersports or the Rehoboth Bay Sailing Association. Both of these establishments are great for renting a vessel for you to enjoy during your stay.

You could also take part in a boating tour from companies such as Cape Water Tours & Taxi or Fisherman’s Wharf Dolphin Watching Cruises. A boat tour presents an excellent way for you to learn more about the beauty of the Rehoboth Beach area, as well as spot some of the breathtaking native wildlife.
