We have stopped here a number of times. Big CG. Many sites ore not well defined but little matter as there is so much room. Given that parking areas are not defined levels can be hit or miss. Biggest point loss is for price. $35 for dry camping is very steep. Not surprised that we have seldom seen Lums Pond very full. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nothing in the way of big box stores are very far away. There is also a good selection of crossover RV/marine stuff.

Good place for a quick stopover because most sites do not have any services. The campground has easy access to the highway. Almost all sites are backin but we did see several motorhomes that pulled into sites along the road. We selected a site with electric. Sites are very large and in good shape and many have plenty of shade. The restrooms could use some maintenance. Over the air TV was very good, about 20 channels. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice state park. It is off the highway so there is no traffic noise and there are lots of trees. The entry was a little hard to find - it is on the South side of the park. We were there mid-week so the park was practically empty. Sites are spacious and shaded. There are not many options for RV parks in DE, but we thought this was a good "find". We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Large sites. Quiet. Safe. Good location. Good roads. Site #22 was not very level. None of the electrical sites looked very level. To get level my front wheels of the motorhome were off the ground.

The dump station is easy to get to but it is a mess. It needs gravel to fill the mud puddle that surrounds it. Water faucets throughout the park are easy to access. The bathhouse was in fairly good shape but needed a good cleaning and paint. The campground is a good place if you plan to visit Newark, Wilmington and Elkton. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first stay at a Delaware State Park and we were disappointed. Our campsite was a mess with a lot of trash left on it. The bathrooms were dirty when we arrived and were not cleaned the two nights that we were there. The dump station still needs work. We called the campground office while leaving and reported the situation. They said that was not acceptable and would see if they could get the problems corrected. If cleaned up properly the CG would be a great place to stay. We would probably give it another try if we are ever back in the area. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A great park, except for the helicopters. One real problem is the dump station. Needs gravel to clean up the mess. Asked when this was going to be fixed, no one had a clue, We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely medium sized state park with 72 sites, including 2 yurts and 4 horse camp sites. Five sites have electricity, with the remainder being primitive (no electric, water, sewer) and mostly open, though there are trees throughout the campground. Within the park is the largest freshwater pond in Delaware (boat rentals available), and several hiking and biking trails. (See the Nov 3, 2009 review by daisyferret1) for an in depth description of the park. Generator hours: 7am-10pm. Recycling is available. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a quiet spot on a pond, lots of tent site but only a few camper sites with electricity. Water is a available from various locations. Had this been an evening with a clear sky this would have been a beautiful place to stargaze. No one was at the registration cabin, nor we're either of the 2 campground hosts to help us register so we just did self-registering. There are hiking trails, one around the pond (which is a 3-4 hr. hike). Bathrooms were clean and there were showers. It was more expensive for what was offered unless you wanted less to begin with. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is out of state with senior discount. Very few electric sites available. Parking on lawn. Level sites. If going via GPS, be sure to go to South Lums Pond (as that is where the campground is). We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

We did an overnight there and will probably come back for an extended visit in the future. At a minimum, we have found our overnight stop for our trips along I-95. I would've given a 10, but didn't because of no water hookups at the electric sites. That said, this was a very nice park. The sites are large and shade is just about right (some sun/some shade). The restrooms and showers are cleaned daily (according to signage) and it showed. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our cost was without electricity $24. This was a first time in a long time, that we actually had a host or ranger to check in with. This park has only about 6 sites with electricity and 3 are taken by a host. There are some pull -throughs but on grass. Nice campground with two loops in a figure 8 pattern. The campground road used to be a one-way, made it much quieter. This is a convenient stop for us coming from New England for a one night stopover. Restroom was clean. Most of the campers the night we were here, were families tenting and it was very enjoyable! We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

As this park is only 2.5 miles from our house, it was where we went for our first camping trip with our new RV. They have 5 electric sites available to book - not 6 with 3 occupied by camp hosts as previously stated. Lums Pond, while lacking in amenities, is a lovely state park to camp at. The sites are large and spaced out. Most all are shaded. The bath house was clean and well stocked for our stay. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring located well away from your rig. Parking is on the grass, so the site may need extra work in leveling. The campground has a *strict* no-alcohol policy. You can have an RV and tent on each site, with up to 8 people and two cars. Each additional person over the initial 4 is $2 a night. Even though it's close to home, we will make it a yearly stop. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

We love this campground. There are six electric sites available, not including the host sites. The inside sites are around large grassy areas: lots of room for the kids to play. The loops are paved and fairly flat for young kids to polish their bike riding skills. We went to UofD to watch a lacrosse game. It was only 15 minutes away. The trails are awesome and the of leash dog area is amazing. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We loved staying here! We were worried because it had approximately 8 inches of rain the day before we camped, and we were concerned that we would be camping in mud. Amazingly the campground was really dry. It is grassy and open - lots of room for kids to play sports. Flat paved loops are great for bike riding. The electric sites have gravel - everything else is grass. There is a dog off-leash area on the other side of the park where the dogs can run and swim. The hiking trails are in really good shape - very few puddles considering the rainfall. There are water views through the trees and the sites are HUGE. We will be back - maybe next month. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice clean park with wide open sites; only six electric – we came through on a weekday so we were able to get one; sites are not level and on grass; bathhouse clean; good campground for fishing and canoeing. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.
