Great campground

Nice drive on sites for tent camping. A few well managed trails. A little heave on the rules(must use the wood they sell, clotheslines must come down overnight.

Members Only

I spent quite a few years visiting this campground, however, it is a member-only property, wherein you must rent or own a lot within the grounds. Nonetheless, the community is tight-knit and offers a ton of opportunity for entertainment to include a pavilion, playground, marina, and boat slips. For boaters it is the quickest way to get to the Angola Bay for fishing, swimming, and more.

Clean and Quiet

Atsion is a hidden gem. Bathrooms continuously clean during Covid. Lots of families. Beautiful sunsets and great hiking trails close by.

Walking distance to the beach!!!

This campground is split into 2 sides . The south side offers tent camping , and the north side offers RV camping . We pitched tents on the south side but also drove to the north side to park and check out the beach view . As long as you have your parking pass for the campground you can park on either sides and explore or fish . The plus side to this place is the beach is very close and in walking distance . We found tons of pretty sea shells . The downside is there are no trees around any of the camping sites , so you have no shade what so ever ! There are no fire pits at any of the campsites so you can’t have fires at your site . We were a bit disappointed about that . There is a community campsite as you enter the campground that anyone is free to use . The sites are close together and exposed . The bridge over the inlet lights up pretty colors at night and is very beautiful! It’s fairly close to stores . We had to drive about 15 minutes to the closest grocery store . I did forget to mention you are right next to the highway so it can be a bit noisy at night . It’s definitely worth it to check this place out !

On the Waterfront

The campground was VERY clean, peaceful, and had offerings for just about any type of camping. The dogs enjoyed walking the park, but there is not much room for them to play here. Campsites are well maintained and you can’t beat the 3 minute walk to the ocean.

Tent Camping

We went camping at Killens pond for the first time a few weeks ago.  We camped in the G loop. Lots of woods for the kids to play in. Easy walk to the shower/bath house. The camp host was super nice and made sure that we had everything we needed.  Great place to take your family for an outdoor adventure. Hiking,  fishing, biking. They also have kayaking and peddle boats. We will definitely be back!

So so close to the beach

This campground is unlike most—few if any trees, no fires at individual sites, and not particularly secluded. But what it does do, it does really well—level sites, clean bathhouses, beach access, and even a beachside restaurant.

The really good: Walk to the beach Cute beach restaurant Plenty of parking Close to towns/restaurants, etc… Kid friendly Quiet at night Beautiful view of the bridge Free beach parking with your tag Clean bathrooms/showers

The okay: Small, very tightly packed sites No trees for hammocks for hanging anything No shade—PREPARE ACCORDINGLY

The not great: The egg-y low tide smell

Nice place

Nice place for a weekend getaway. A little hard to find the right spot we had reserved but once you've been there it's an easy go. Good spot if you don't mind neighbors in the vicinity. Quiet but not too remote. Plenty of places to walk through the woods.

I would stay here again

Last minute I booked this place for a friend and me to stay for 2 nights to go to the beach. The beach is in walking distance of the camp site as well as fishing, surfing and other activities in the area.

It’s between Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach. We like going to Rehoboth Beach and that was only a 10min drive.

I picked site #087. Right across from the Bathhouse w/ a fence and some high grass between the site & Guardhouse.

The sites are butted up right next to each other, but are fairly big. Many people had reserved sites together & created a “base camp” which looked like the right way to go!

Both buildings were well lit at night, but didn’t really bother us because of high grass and leaving the front & back windows open 1/3 of the way.

This is a very family friendly place & everyone seemed to be in the “Active” community & there with kids & dogs. There is also night fishing in the inlet.

With that being said, I would make sure to bring EARPLUGS and SHOWER SHOES!

The only “complaints” we had were as follows:

  1. By the end of the day the bathrooms/showers were a little gross.
  2. No open fires at your site for safety reasons (totally understand) & there are communal places provided for open fires.
  3. Need to bring propane cooking devices if you want to cook at your site (we ate out every meal lol).

All in all we enjoyed staying here and most of the people were supper nice. Check-in and Check-out were supper easy and you could come and go as you pleased.

Beach side camping

This is a state campground on both sides of Indian River inlet. The south side is more set up for tent camping and the north side is newer and more rv oriented. 

The sites are close together and pretty wide open, but this isn't unusual this close to the beach. Literally a couple hundred yards walk to tje beach. Nearly new bath houses, and shore fishing along the inlet. The south side probably has the better beach facility, but your car pass gets you into any Delaware State Park facility free. We went down to Fenwick Island to meet up with friends. An easy 5 min drive. Full hook ups, clean and well maintained, super friendly staff.
