Lums Pond State Park Bear, Delaware
Lums Pond State Park is built around the largest freshwater pond in Delaware. The park features excellent camping, fishing, sports facilities, hiking trails, and an unforgettable Go Ape! Treetop Adventure Course featuring rope ladders, treetop crossings, Tarzan swings and 5 zip lines — four of them over water! Lums Pond itself covers 200 acres, and although there is no swimming allowed, boat rentals and fishing provide water-bound recreation. A boat launching ramp and two piers allow easy access to the water.
Hikers have the opportunity to explore a variety of habitats along the 7.5 mile Swamp Forest Trail circling the pond. Lums also features over 10 miles of multi-purpose trails for walking, biking, horseback riding, snowmobiles and cross country skiing.
Woodlands, fields, and waterways meet at Lums Pond State Park. Rent a rowboat, kayak or canoe and explore Delaware’s largest freshwater pond. Camping is available year-round. The upgrades to Lums Pond campground are complete and 68 sites have electric, water and sewer hook-ups!
