Very tidy and comfortable wooded park. Great shad over campers for hot days... the camping loops were very social and the atmosphere was very friendly. Children will love weekends here! Everything about the park had great vibes... the water park, the trails and the pond water sports were all really pleasant. One can walk or bike to the water park from the campground. While entrance fees to the water park are not included with camping it's only five bucks! It's a great campground to stay over a weekend or to stop over on the way to someplace else north or south. We stopped after a week at DE Seashore State Park on our travels back to the Philly region as a nice treat before the vacation ended. Note: Larger campers can be accommodated but it's a goof idea to ask which loop is best. Looks as if D loop and E loops we're best suited for large campers over 22' up to fifth wheels and buses. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Water park is clean, newly updated and a lot of fun. The pond / lake supports great fresh water fishing. Canoes, kayaks and paddle boats available for cheap rental prices. Very nice nature center which is a new building (with kids programs and interpretive programs). Hiking trails and biking... you may hike or bike to water park about 15 minutes away from camper... 10, for nature center.

Campground is flat and heavily wooded. Entrance roads to camping loops are asphalt and make nice biking but connecting camping loop roads are packed dirt. Staff professional and friendly. Our campsite was not overly large for our 20' TT. No problems with our hookups. We didn't try the Wifi but had good signal on our Verizon. Most sites we saw were average in size and were plain dirt. Nice walking trails around campground pond, lots of possibilities for fishing. One issue we had was the only campground bathhouse lost water pressure while we were there. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Large sites all staggered so you aren't too close to anyone. Lots of tent campers. Boat dock on the pond, no power boats. No WiFi, cable or satellite reception for TV and very limited on air TV reception all due to heavy tree cover. Many hiking and biking trails. We had two nice days and nights followed by rain all day and night the last day of our stay. the drainage wasn't bad, more sand than mud. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Site and roads are mostly dirt, loops are very wooded, may be too much since the trees held in the heat, but definitely plenty of shade. Lots of activities, trails and things to do in park. Water park was $5 per person and my children had a fun time. Cell phone service was fine, didn't try TV. Some sites were good size, some were smaller. My complaints are no wash station for dishes, and no alcove in shower to change, just a commmon area. Bathrooms and showers were clean. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Dump station line becomes long, if headed North, Dover Downs (Casino & Speedway) has a free dump station.

Park is small...all loops are tight and narrow with lots of shade. They mix tent sites with RV sites and car parking is limited. Utilities are OK and sites are mostly level. Main road is paved but loops are compacted gravels. Short ride to Harrington for all shopping needs. Its an ok park for an overnight or two....but not my idea of a destination stop. There is a camp host on property if needed. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Clean campground. Friendly staff. Great shaded and level sites. Numerous walking trails. My kids loved riding bikes and walking the trails. We had to wait an hour in line for dump station on way out of park. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Your campground car pass gets you free entrance into killens pond state park and nature center, then it's $4 per person to enter water park. Water park was just ok

This is a nice state park campground, wooded with larger sites and foliage in between them. Our site was gravel/sand and only needed a little leveling. New electric pedestals and water connections at least in D loop. Restrooms and showers were clean. Nice walking path around the pond. We would camp here again.

No TV reception. Bathhouse old but clean. Not big rig friendly and my motorhome is only 30ft. Very tight turns getting to site. Tree limbs need trimming. Had to be moved due to unlevel site. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Very comfortable and nice scenery. All wooded sites and many friendly campers. I don't totally understand the rates and fees. The website on which you make the reservation says $25/night. But for 3 nights they charge $85 plus a fee of $4.00; I'd like this to be explained better. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

$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. We camped in a fifth wheel. We camped at Killens Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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 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.
