Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is located on the eastern coast of Kent County, Delaware. Most of the refuge is comprised of tidal marsh with some upland forest and freshwater. Also within the refuge is the Allee House, a pre-revolutionary war farmhouse that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The diverse habitat of the refuge provides homes to a range of bird species and is an important stop along the Atlantic Flyway migratory route. Over 300 species of birds have been identified within the refuge, including osprey and many shorebirds.

Bombay Hook features a 12-mile round-trip auto tour route that families can explore. Those families interested in exploring the preserve by foot can take advantage of the 5 trails.
