Lums Pond State Park

Lums Pond State Park

Bear, DE

Lums Pond is perfect for the “jack-of-all-trades” adventurer! Hiking, biking, paddling, camping, what more could you ask for?

Lums Pond is the largest freshwater pond in Delaware, once used to help fill the locks of the C&D Canal.

Now, you can traverse the entire pond by foot, bike, or even horse on 17 miles of trails. Or, if water travel is more your style, explore the park from the pond itself. There are tons of nooks and crannies to spot wildlife or reel in your next catch.

Plus, when get done exploring, kick back in your epic campsite, completely outfitted, with luxury in mind, by Bay Ventures.
