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.

Beautiful park, well maintained. Great in the summer for kayaking or canoeing. They offer playground for the kids and BBQ areas for picnics. One of my favorite places in the summer.

Lums Pond features 2 intertwining & rolling single and double-track trails - great for the beginner mountain biker. The campground is pretty nice and the day sights are as well. The problem is the pond's poor water quality from algae blooms. There are signs posted not to allow your dog to drink from the pond and to bathe them immediately... More

The campground we stayed at was a real gem. There are 6 electric sites down by the lake that give you a perfect sight to wake up to after a long day of driving.

My husband and I like to ride in the park, they also have a zip line that's a ton of fun. A lot of areas for your pets and barbecue. We have events there sometimes. Horse riding is always fun there.

There is plenty of parking available, a boat ramp, picnic tables, grills and pavilions, a variety of trails that go around the pond. A great location for hiking, kayaking, and picnicking. As this is a state park, there is an entrance fee during certain times of the year.
