  • Went on an early morning Easter hike. This place does not disappoint! Trails are nice and well marked. We were sad to hear that we missed seeing an owl around the time we visited. I wish they would....  more »
  • During Covid I have been on a mission to explore outdoor areas in the state of Delaware and beyond. Yesterday my husband and I walked the Pond trail which was about 2.5 miles in length. I was very.....  more »
  • The pond is much bigger than originally thought. There are trails looping the pond, a nature center, and a place to rent kayaks, canoes and paddle boats. This park can be for day use, or you can...  more »
  • Last minute camping trip at Killen's Pond. Our first time there, and it will be our go to place from now on. Clean, quiet, and reasonable cost. Cabins are solid, and pretty sound proof. So shaded we didn't need the AC. Walking trail and canoe/paddle boats were a nice, scenic change. My kids loved seeing nature at it's (local) finest! I'd love to go back as soon as the weather gets cooler. Unfortunately we weren't able to make the water park. Definitely next year!.
  • Wooded sites. Very nice staff. Wooded trails and bike path. Water park is closed on weekdays for the first 2 and last 2 weeks of the season, so we missed that, but will be back to try it out next year. Canoe, kayak and boat rentals. Very reasonable rates.
  • Fantastic park to visit. A lot of beautiful views and grounds to do a lot of outdoor activities. The life course is very cool as well. The pond is absolutely stunning and a great time to rent kayak, canoe or pedal boat!!
  • What a beautiful very clean state park. Very shaded and peaceful. The campsites were very close but we were fortunate to have very respectful people camping by us. Will definitely be back next year
  • Such a beautiful and peaceful park! The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because I did not experience it all. I was there with my son and his health and fitness conscience self. Our visit proved that there is something there for every level. My son ran three(?) laps with my 9 year old grandson. (The last half with him on his shoulders). My 14 year old granddaughter and I chose to walk the same trail at a steady pace (most of the way) in the opposite direction. You see my way was downhill and theirs, a bit of an incline. They came by us twice before we stopped to play with a cute kitten near a bench...On the other side of whatever that building was, I'm told there is a field with the usual equipment and a more challenging trail. I did not ask about the building; didn't want to slow these people down! (I am told the 9 year old can run a nine minute mile) My granddaughter is used to keeping up with the boys, but just chose to "keep Nana company" (: Next time I'll make sure our walk includes the field and that building; a tour as it were...LOL
