$25 reflects shoulder season weekday non resident rate. We have been in this CG many many times, always in loop D though all are much the same. Don't come here looking for a satelite signal. Every loop is heavily treed. All loops are circular making all of the backins very easy to get into with even the largest of 5ers. The bathroom building is located between loops C & D. No, it is not anywhere near as far as the previous poster has suggested, even from the furthest site in loop A. No FHUs & the dump is a little tricky for a large towable but easy enough for anything else.

One point lost by my rating method for being a little pricey for a SP for W&E & being charged extra for being non resident always gets the hackels up a little. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, but park is not handicap friendly. No parking at bath house area. About a half mile from my site to bath house, told I would be ticketed if I parked in that area. Have never been in a State park that was not handicap friendly. Park is laid well set up and is very clean. Will not be back again as I am not physically able to walk near that far.

Rates is with a 10% Golden Age Pass Discount. Camp was surprisingly full. Had good water and electric to start, but later in the evening the water pressure got low and the electric was in the lower-end red area on our meter. Surprisingly, the coffee pot still worked! Would stay again if nothing else available. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Truck Camper.

Killens Ponds State Pond State Park, Felton, DE. This park is situated around a picturesque millpond and is open year round. There were only four campers there when we arrived, but it has electric hookups, frost free water spigots throughout the park, and a huge bathhouse with showers which is nice when you are still in the winter season and below freezing. We could see the pond from our site. This park has a lot to offer especially in the warmer weather – fields, biking trails, store, canoeing, Frisbee golf, horseshoes, nature program, interpretive center, pond fishing, volleyball courts, walking trails, and a water park. Sites are on gravel in the woods. It was very quiet when we arrived but hundreds of birds were flying overhead – migrating. Maybe because of the northeasterner or the other storm coming up from the south the birds were very confused where to ride out the two storms. DE just increased their fees for camping so the out of state fee with hookups was $30, but they do have a senior discount. Nice park, and if you're looking for a one night or more stopover with electric it’s a great place to stay especially in the winter. If you check in after the rangers are gone you drive to the campground and pick up a registration form at the check-in or store and fill it out and place in the holder (they don’t accept credit cards or checks though) – take a map and then drive and find a site. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed an early season Easter Weekend here. Since is was early in season, the grounds were still mostly covered with last fall's foliage. However spots were spacious and not too close to one another. Front desk attendant were rather unfriendly, short and temperamental. Showers and bathrooms were clean and upkeep was good. On check out day, the dumping station tank was alarming full, but the friendly maintenance resident was able to help us ensure safe emptying of our tanks. Common and community areas were clean, mowed and the pond looks inviting. Pool is nearby as well as close to Dover and area shopping. We will return soon. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I used this campground for a place to stay while riding in a local bike ride. We were pulling our 32 foot travel trailer and booked site A5, which is rated for a 33' trailer. Upon arrival on late Friday evening, I was none too happy to find that I had to navigate through a VERY narrow circle to get to my camp site. BE WARNED: The circle is very narrow, lined with trees and was difficult to navigate. I was basically within inches of trees on both sides while attempting to navigate in the dark. In addition to the width issues, I was unhappy to find vehicles parked in the road in front of adjoining camp sites. According to the park policy, a 1 vehicle per site rule exists but it was evidently not enforced. When I asked a fellow camper to move, I was greeted with disgust and the gentleman would not talk to me. He instead slammed his tailgate and got in the truck and moved without any type of interaction. Once in the site, I was thrilled to navigate tree stumps and an improperly cleared space. Without being very precise, we were faced with either not opening our back slide or not opening our canopy because of trees. After many attempts, we finally got the RV placed perfectly and were set for the night. All in all, it took me 1 hour to get in to my site and get setup due to all of the difficulties. The sites are sandy, not gravel so be sure to bring a rug and a broom. They lock the firewood shed at night, so late arrivals are forced to forgo a first night camp fire since bringing your own wood is illegal. thankfully, I had some starter logs in the RV. Don't believe there is an enforced quiet time since kids were running around and screaming at 11pm. I even had kids run through my site while I was trying to hookup and I had to ask them nicely not to do so out of safety. If you're looking for shady wooded sites, then this is your place! Seems like a nice setting, but I just don't foresee us going back for a family visit anytime soon. Just not one of the best out there and definitely not setup for the larger travel trailers.

Unfortunately there was a tremendous amount of rain on the night we checked in. Sites are VERY dense and shaded, coupled with the rain and wet weather meant there were bugs galore. Not just mosquito's but also yellow jackets and very large spiders. Dense forest also meant spotty TV reception. Bath house was as clean as could be expected with the wet sandy conditions of the sites and walking paths. Nice park. Would stay here again, but would probably chose early spring or fall.

We loved this campground. Who knew a state park could have a water park? I hear it is really, really crowded in the Summer. We just spent Labor Day weekend and the pool wasn't crowded. The kids had a blast. They have lots of activities - story teller, hayride, concert. The nature center is beautiful and the trails are well maintained. And the staff was awesome!! We will definitely camp here again! We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Love this park. Has a great atmosphere. The sites are easily accessible for the most part. The water park that is close by is very nice. Clean and well maintained with a nice section for younger children. One of my favorite parks. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped at Killen's Pond "C" Loop for two weeknights to take advantage of free waterpark and boat rental passes. Access to the loops is somewhat tight for larger rigs (our setup is 53 feet in length) but manageable. All of the sites were nicely shaded and seemed level. The bathrooms and showers were clean, and the staff was helpful. The campground (and park overall) are bike friendly (for children as well). As expected, the waterpark was somewhat crowded but very nice overall. The kids also enjoyed the park Nature Center. We would stay here again.

Great little park in a convenient location. Sites are pretty close together, but with the brush and trees all over not too bad. Don't expect sunshine at your campsite, the trees are very dense and provide complete shade. Not too bad on a hot summer day. Great trails and nature center available. Will camp here again.

Stayed in F loop. Note: suggest use the on-line reservation system since the entire campground was booked. The Ranger had the 'No Vacancy' sign out. The road into the campground loops are tight turns, but manageable. Be aware when staying in a site marked 38': it really is 38'. Some other states add some length (i.e. for tow units). Site was downward sloping sand adjoining a gravel road around the camp loop. Had to crankdown the front jack to its lowest to make travel unit level. All sites appear to be sand pads. Very nice to have your own water spigot and electricity. (Note: the electric box is towards front of site, so know how long your RV cord is). One dump station for entire park that has a sharp turn withe tree branches. Just be careful and go slow. Very wide open ball fields and play areas. Was a bit disappointed in the trails not being better marked and groomed. Overall a 7 out of 10. Would stay here again in the area. Camp fires: Leave wood at home but expect to burn new pine from ranger store. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great winter camping destination. We enjoyed this place, even when it snowed. There are plenty of trails to hike along the pond. The heated bath house was very clean and well heated. The water was turned off at the sites but was available in certain areas. The campground hosts were very nice. We will return again, often. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful state park that's right off the interstate, but far enough away, that it's perfectly quiet. There's a big lake, and a path that winds around it. I didn't get to go fishing, because it was just an overnight, but I'm sure the fishing was good by the look of it. There was a big water park on the other side of the lake that looked fun. No wi-fi, but I was able to tether my laptop. Would have liked to stay longer. We would stay here again. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

$26 with a golden age pass for an out of state camper. We have heard good things about this campground which is open year round. All the 59 sites are located in the woods with most of them having water and electricity. There are about six loops for RV’s and tents are welcomed not only in those loops but there is a loop just for tents. The bathroom shower sections needed to be updated for more privacy. Our site was in walking distance to a big beautiful pond where one can fish, boat or hikes the many trails that go around the pond. The state park is huge with separate areas for day use, boating and hiking as well as a huge playground area. There are horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, disc golf, baseball fields and a canoe trail. You can not swim here – I think Delaware stopped all swimming at their state parks because of law suits because about fifteen years ago you were allowed to swim in most of them. We enjoyed our one night stay at this campground; the host came around and gave us a lot of information about what to do here. He was very pleasant. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Motorhome.
