10 Reviews of Lums Pond State Park
Around the corner

A small state park surrounding a large pond. The campground is located on the backside of the park, with its own entrance, so follow directions carefully. Because of this, it’s slightly removed from the beach and other service areas of the park, but is connected by multi use trails. Great for biking, as the recently finished Mike Castle trail along the C&D Canal is right across the street.

Only spot in northern DE

Great RV amenities. large spots. nice pond with a nice trail for mtb or hiking. very easy trail for both. boat ramp onsite. zip line. overall very nice place

great place

This campground was completely redone last year and is really great. There is plenty to do here including, kayaking/ canoeing, hiking, disc golf and they even have a zip line course (additional fee). This place books fast so schedule early if you want a site.

Very Dog Friendly

Campground sites are nice and spacious, bathrooms are good, and there’s plenty to do for everyone. We hiked the 7.5mile lake trail with our two pups. It was beautiful and along the way there were opportunities to kayak/sup, beach it, or even play on a ropes course. We always travel with our dogs and this place has the BEST dog park. Big open space with access to lots of water play. We definitely recommend this spot!

Lums Pond

Convenient to MD, PA, and DE side trips. Campground has 2 yurts right by the lake. There is no swimming, but your yurt rental gets you a double sit on top kayak, paddles, and PFDs. A/C has been added to the yurts. There is one bunk bed with a full size bottom bunk and a single top. A futon is also in each yurt. Across the lake is Going Ape Zip Line. An 8 mile loop trail circumnavigates the lake and can be used my bikers, walkers, or runners.

Nice and quite. 7 mile hiking trail and 8 mile multi purpose trail.

Sites are full hook up with about 5 tent sites.

All are pretty much level.

Close to shopping if needed.

Beautiful wooded campground by water.

This is a beautiful wooded campground with sites you can access easily. It has access to Lums pond where you can fish, boat, swim. There are trail for hiking and biking. Picnic tables and fire ringsat site.Spring, Summer, Fall

A Favorite

I try to do Lums pond each fall. The camp area is quiet, well managed, etc. We usually book a site over near the trails and farther from the entrance/families. Dog friendly, gorgeous water views, plenty of kindling, etc. The picnic tables at the sites are a great touch. There's a good 7 mile loop to hike, kayak launches, frisbee golf course… Close to home, simple, a great first time camp site/group site.

Nature in the backwoods of Delaware

Great campground for groups! We were camping with 3 other families with small children and had a fantastic open area site to accommodate all the kids. Plenty of room to run and play.

There are small hiking trails to the pond where you can go to rent various types of watercraft for use on the Pond. Highly recommended for traveling families!

First to Review
No shade, set up on the wrong side! :/

Lums Pond is one of my least favorite places to camp! We arrived to find what seemed more like a large field! Very few trees, not much shade at all! The site offered electric and water but they were on 2 different sides. This made it difficult to set up. Had to park the camper crooked to use both. Some of the campers that were there looked like they lived there and did not tend to their sites. There was trash and broken down cars! The bathrooms were awful. Looked like they were rarely cleaned! To do activities at the park you have to drive to a different area, there is a charge but not if you are a registered camper. We spent most of our time there. They have a large pond that you can rent paddle boats and small v-bottom boats! We did enjoy the paddle boats and saw a few cranes! They offer fishing at the pond which was also enjoyable! Good for a day trip, no for camping! Happy Camping!
