The campground is amazing since it was redone. All sites have electric, water, and sewer. Not all sites are level and some are shorter for small rigs. Big grassy area in area near the restrooms and showers. Nice and quiet at night with no big lights to keep you awake. The trash bins were located outside the entrance, and a comment to management would be to move them closer to the roadway so you could drop off the trash and go without blocking the exit as some did while another went to the trash bin. Not a big problem but just a thought. The campground has some low areas that I saw a fair amount of standing water after recent rain, near the camp sites. Some of those could have dirt fill put in and raise those areas so you wouldn't have mud near your rv, again just a comment. Very nice park and certainly would camp there again. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

With shopping not far from Lums Pond there was plenty of eating and shopping to do. Everything we needed was within a short drive from the campground. I really liked our stay here it was quiet and peaceful. The only thing I missed was being able to check my emails, the campground has no wifi. With the hurricane happening back home in Florida, I would have liked to had the wifi, but we survived without it.

We had camped here some years ago and the camping area seems to have been renovated since then. The park is not too far from I-95. Our site was level and appeared to have been very recently paved with asphalt. Bath facilities were clean. Nice small pond in the park. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate paid was for out of state. We stayed for three nights prior to the July 4th holiday. Love this campground and will definitely be returning. Newly remodeled with 50, 30 and 20 amp service at all sites. Needed to level a little, but not bad. All sites are paved. With gravel for the picnic table area. Fire ring, too. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend this park. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

The campsites' amenities were newly installed last year in the entire campground. Some of the campsites pads were not wide enough, but the Park personnel were working to resolve that issue with the contractor. The hookups are too close to the site and are arranged oddly, in conjunction with the narrow site--it made opening the slide an interesting exercise. I have a 25' motorhome and a Mini Cooper--my site was just long enough to accommodate both, but I was able to park the car alongside the motorhome. The park does offer a parking lot for cars that cannot fit into the site. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent place to stay. Extremely level and wide paved back-in sites with full hookups and 50 amp power. Nature trails and bike paths. Nice lake with boat launch, etc. Small store on premises. Well manicured and beautiful. Most sites can get satellite, and over the air channels are great for those who cannot. I do not overrate campgrounds as many do. This would have been a 10 if it had WiFi and a pool! Will stay here again if we can. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice state park. The paved and level sites are located in 2 loops, there is a fishing pier in the campground that leads right out to the lake. The campground is very well manicured, and the bathhouses are new. There are only 4 single showers, and they are co-ed. There are trees scattered through out providing lots of shade. All sites are 3 way and back-in. The power and water strong. Our Sprint phone and Hot-spot worked well. The OTA antenna brought in channels from Philadelphia. There is plenty of room to walk the pup. We will stay here anytime we are passing through the area. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

All the activities are on the other side of the lake, which is a 4 mile walk, or you can drive to it. There you can rent kayaks, paddle boats, sports equipment, horseback riding or even go zip-lining

There are not many options in the Philadelphia area, and even less that are open year round, so it was nice to find a nice, freshly refurbished, state park campground that is.

There were a few long term campers in this campground that rebook every two weeks, leaving for some confusion when I pulled in to find someone in the site I had booked. I had happened to book the site just before he rebooked. He was there all winter, and wasn't moving, but there were plenty of sites, so I just choose another, as it didn't matter to me. The host was very helpful and pleasant as he cleared up the confusion.

Bath house in this park is brand new and was very clean and well designed. Sites seem to have been all redone and were level, with all hook-ups working well. They were also well spaced and easy to navigate, most were in the open with just a few trees around. The park itself is easy to navigate with paved interior roads and not far from US301 or I-95, but still quiet at night. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Upgraded state park facility in Bear, DE. Park is slightly confusing to get to. Be sure to enter the campground address, not main entrance to state park. Site was barely long enough for our 42' fifthwheel and dually truck. Site sloped "front to back", (had nose up so high I was able to walk under it without stooping!). However, back of trailer was only about 2 feet off the ground. New hookups (w/e/s) were mid-coach and easily accessible. Walking distance to the pond for fishing (need a license).

To enter campground, from Rt. 896, take Red Lion Road (NOT Howell School Road). Follow Red Lion Road to entrance of campground. Beware there are low hanging branches at the entrance. Know your site number, as the whole 3 days we were there, we never saw anyone at the main gate house. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First time staying here, and certainly not the last. We stayed for one night on Thanksgiving weekend and were amazed how many other people were camping here. It was full! When you think State Park, you think of very basic camping. For the price, it's incredible. Full hookups, paved sites (recently renovated). Very modern, and easy to navigate. Feels like an RV resort! Camp Hosts on sites, small store, and the property is beautiful. Only downfall was no firewood available for sale on site. We can't wait to go back! So much to do and see here. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

They have just upgraded the sites to full hook ups which is a great addition. Sites which are paved could be longer, but hear they might extend them farther with gravel, which would be a plus. Site aprons could be made wider as you will have to back across the grass which is new and with rain, might sink some.

Overall things are better but some small changes will help a lot. Not many camping spots in the northern part of Delaware and a short drive from 896 will makes this a great overnight stop for some snowbirds. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
