Ill start by saying EVERYONE was extremely nice. We had no problems with noise or rude people. The camp store has an honor box firewood purchase system so you can pick up wood all hours of the night. (rare to see now days). The trails where nice but, I use to travel to trap pond a lot as a child.... More

I've been coming here since I was a little girl! We stay in the cabins now since we can park our boat right behind the cabin on the water. Wake up and jump on the boat! We catch large mouth bass, crappies, bluegill, catfish, sunfish, and pikes! Only downfall is there is no water in the cabin so in order... More

We came to Trap Pond for a 2 day stay before heading to Cape Henlopen. Loved it! Beautiful. We enjoyed the 4 mile bike loop, canoeing out to the little island for a picnic and fishing, and a outdoor concert in the eve. Wonderful. Perfect for families.

I only live 3 miles away, but this is one of our favorite places to camp! The sites are large with plenty of shade. The bathhouses are dated, but kept clean. The bike path around the pond is wonderful! Lots of trails and good views. I have so many great memories here!

We stayed in Cabin 1 for two weekend nights in early October 2012. Two years earlier, I had stayed in the yurt next door and loved it. Regarding cabin 1, the water view was somewhat obscured by plants. The cabin was cute. The mattress was thin and I had a tough time sleeping on it. The second night, we added... More

We recenlty visited trap pond state park for the first time and we loved it. It was in mid september, off season, so it wasn't crowded at all. By Sunday nite, the place was nearly empty except for mostly a few seniors with RV's. Upon arrival, check in was smooth. We found our campsite and set up. The sites are... More

It was our first time here and I hope not the last. Camped in one of camping cottages. We loved having a small mini fridge and air conditioning. The air conditioner was not super loud as I am not a deep sleeper. Our cabin had easy access to the water and we fished often from our own little private spot.... More

Trap Pond State Park was a pretty basic campground offering picnic areas and playgrounds. The main attraction, the pond was beautiful and was the perfect place to teach my daughter how to row a rowboat. After rowing in circles at the hands of my little one we made our way to an island of bald Cyprus and she and myself... More

We've been coming to camp three year in a row. We were very lucky that weather was perfect. The kayak, fishing, biking and hiking trip with kids were fun. We've always met nice families during the trip. We love the Yurt with a great access to the water. The kids loved the camp store for snacks - Popsicle, and etc.... More
