We were heading south from Upstate New York, and didn’t want to deal with the traffic of I-95. We chose a route through Delaware and Maryland to Norfolk, VA and on to points south. There is no express highway, but Delaware and Maryland offer many nice places to stop for a night or two. Killens Pond State Park is one of them. The campground area is clean and well maintained with campsites that aren’t on top of each other. The picnic and day use areas are sunny and spacious. For the young folks, there is a nice water park and plenty of playground stuff. Bring your fishing gear and enjoy a quiet afternoon at the pond.
The camp store is modest, but the firewood is generously portioned for the price and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Dover AFB, Chesapeake Bay, and the Ocean Beaches are all accessible from this inland campground. It’s a nice rest stop, or a great destination.
