7 Reviews of Killens Pond State Park
Nice for a short visit

Pros: this campground was nice and clean, with decent amenities (including FREE hot showers!). I stayed there on a Saturday, and walked in without a reservation and was able to get a site. They had a few ranger-led events that night that I was able to partake in (a hay ride for a small fee, and a night hike that was free). They were both enjoyable, and everyone that worked there that I encountered was very pleasant.

Cons: the sites are pretty close together with no real trees or privacy in between, at least where I was located. So, I would stay here again for a night if I was passing through, but I wouldn't make this place a 'destination.'

Mostly good

This campground is mostly good. It is a little bit tight. I’d prefer to be further away from each other campsite, which was only like ten or fifteen feet. But otherwise, the primitive campsites were very wooded and nice! Potable water was very close to all sites, and there were wheelbarrow-like carts available to bring your camping gear to your site from the parking lot.

Great for kids!

My son absolutely loved this place. There’s anything and everything you could think of available to keep everyone busy. A water park, volley ball field, playgrounds, amphitheater, nature center, nature trails, and boat rentals at the lake.

It is a huge park, with secluded spots available for tent camping, cabins, and regular open spaces for camping rvs with electric hook up. Staff was friendly, campgrounds were well kept. It can get a little crowded but it’s worth it to stay. If you don’t like crowds, I suggest coming during the week days!

Basic state park with trails

Campground is quite big and basic . Sites are large and shaded . Bathrooms are basic showers are ok but hot water is limited at times. People are pleasant . Water park gets filled to capacity very quick . Paddle boats are reasonable. Can’t swim only in water park but only 20/40 minutes to beaches . Trails around pond are taken care of quite well .

Good camping, massive denreq presence

Many go camping to get away from civilization. If this is your goal, this is not the campsite for you. Denreq patrols constantly. It seems less like a campsite and more like a training ground. We were responsible campers and yet we were harassed all night. The campsite itself if beautiful, and some include a kayak for exploring the pond. There are trails and boatdocks.

Small, but beloved

Locals love Killens Pond. It is a great quick getaway, though not as different from other pond based State Parks. It is small given its popularity. It does include a water park that is in the boundaries, which is a nice and rare touch.

Thanksgiving getaway

We stayed in one of the cabins for thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. They are cozy but very comfortable! Being a walk-in there was very little foot traffic when we were outside and the pond is quite close! The walks round the lake is a great way to get out and wander for a bit too
