Lum's Pond State Park Delaware

Lum's Pond has now completed upgrades to the CG most of not all sites are now FHU. We will be staying there this weekend and will report back as to upgrades. Previously this was a 68 site CG with only 6 sites having electric. Other sites were dry camping only. If this upgrade is sucessful other DE SP will follow suit. Killen Pond has already upgraded their electric to 50 amp on several loops this year. They are currently mapping out FHU possibly in as early as two years. Really hoping Trap Pond will see some improvements as well.

Is it true they charge out of staters more than what it states through reserve America?

Not sure of pricing thru reserve America but there is a higher fee for out of state. Later today I will post out of state pricing for you.

Well welcome to slower lower Delaware. Killen's pond SP is nice for hiking, it does have a water park. Which has been updated this season as well. Have not seen that yet

look at all the Delaware people all of a sudden. I go to Trap Pond 12-15 times a year. Will be there this weekend. I walked through the Lums Pond campground 2 weeks ago. Looks like it will be pretty nice. Not sure why alcohol isn't allowed there but is in other campgrounds.

Pocahontas State park south side of Richmond is really nice. We go to Tuckahoe State Park west of Denton MD quite often. Elk neck State Park in Northeast MD. Will mention Holiday Park is no Holiday!

I have heard years ago that Lums Pond was a not such a nice place. In fact anything but nice, wild parties, drugs and violence was once the norm there. So the "no alcohol" probably stems from that. I would imagine as long as your not acting like a race fan it would be "overlooked".

you got that right. Not that it's bad. Just really outdated, "activities" are a joke, and it's too expensive for just water/electric.

Thanks for the intel, will put it to good use. maybe we will run into each other some place along the trail. taking a 4 day weekend out to bethpage with a few buddies from work and thier families should be a good time.
