Nice place to see if you are in this area. The park was very quiet when we were there and there were many spots to visit withing the park.

My family stayed at Lums Pond State Park over July 4th weekend this year. We were amazed at how spacious the camp sites are - and the fact that they back up to a large, common field in the main loop made them feel that much bigger! There are several secluded spots and a couple of yurts to rent, with... More

Go ape zip lining is so much fun. I have gone about 7 times and have fun every single time. The staff is energetic and very knowledgeable.

Mother's Day Weekend with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons was a lot of fun at Lums Pond State Park. We hiked, canoed, had a campfire, and watched model airplanes fly in a beautiful setting! Great place to go without going too far from home!

This park is a very nice size with campgrounds and pavilions and water activities. We had a very nice time here for our family reunion picnic. We had over 100 people and the pavilion in area #2 easily accommodated us. There was a grill and many picnic tables. I would recommend bringing table cloths as the tables are a bit... More

This park has a good number of places where groups can have parties, play sports (a Cricket game was going on the day I was there) and of course a great pond for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, etc. The trail is good for hiking or Mtn Biking

You can play disc golf rent paddleboats, play cricket or do the Go Ape tour. Lots of fun things to do. Get the year Delaware park pass or pay the daily fee that is $4 or $5 dollars a day. You can also play baseball or just take a nice nature walk.

The park itself is beautiful. The campground has wonderful large grassy sites. 68 sites in all. The problem is, that there is one Bath/Shower house for the entire campground. In the mens room was 2 stalls. 3 urnials and 3 showers, that's it, for the men and boys from 68 sites. Needsless to say, there was a line in the... More

I liked the staff and the course. I think the course should be longer. I hated the nets that I swung into and the bridges were hard. I loved the zip lining parts. Especially over the water. I loved that I did the course with my boyfriend Drew.
