Lums Pond State Park is built around the largest freshwater pond in Delaware. The park features excellent fishing, sports facilities, hiking trails and more on its 1790 acres on the north side of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. Lums Pond itself covers 200 acres, and although there is no swimming allowed, boat rentals and fishing provide water-bound recreation in the summer months. A boat launching ramp and two piers allow easy access to the water.
With so many choices for outdoor recreation, you may decide to stay for awhile. The 68-site campground offers modern showers, a dumping station, picnic tables and grills. The sites are all large and six of them now have electric hookups.
Yurts are round stationary structures with canvas walls that feature: a single and double bed bunked together, a double bed size futon, an outdoor seating area, and outdoor deck. Yurts are a fun and easy alternative to pitching a tent yourself, but still allow you to experience the rustic feel of camping outdoors. Perfect for the new camper! Maximum 5 people per yurt.
Lums Pond offers 4 horse campsites. Riders can enjoy a getaway without the need for daily trailering!
The Lums Pond State Park campground entrance is off of Red Lion Road (RT 71) between the intersections of Howell School Road and Summit Bridge Road (RT896).
