If you and your buddy are looking for a Fido-friendly outdoor getaway in Delaware, you’d be barking mad not to camp at Killens Pond State Park! The campground isn’t all mod-cons, but you’ll certainly have access to most of your creature comforts. There are well-maintained showers and flush toilets on-site. RV campers do have access to water hookups, but only 30 amp electricity hookups are available. There’s also a separate area for tent camping, so you won’t have to deal with any RV noise when there’s only canvas between you and the elements. 

Two-legged family members might well appreciate the playground, and if your furry friend needs to run free, you’re in luck -- there’s a fenced-in pet area right outside your door (or tent flap)! There’s also a convenience store at the campground, so there’s no need to waste precious luggage space on provisions. There's an $8 per day per vehicle fee for out-of-state visitors to the park, reduced to $4 for Delaware residents. Tent sites start at $15, while an RV spot will set you back $20 to $25.

The location isn’t bad, either! Killens Pond is a gorgeous, 66-acre millpond along the beautiful but alarmingly named Murderkill River. The sites are well shaded by a mixture of mature pines and deciduous trees, and you can expect colorful foliage in fall. The campground is very paw-pular in the summer months, so it’s best to make your reservation early.

You and your buddy won’t have to go too far to find something to do -- Killens Pond State Park has plenty of op-paw-tunities for outdoor recreation. Keen anglers might be glad to know that the lake is well stocked with trout. The trails in the park aren’t exactly challenging, but hound-dog hikers might still enjoy a walk on the three-mile Killens Pond loop. If you’d like to venture a little fur-ther afield, Cape Henlopen State Park is just a 45-minute drive away, and leashed pooches are allowed on the beaches during the summer. And of course, non-furry children should have a whale of a time at the waterpark!

Wifi isn’t available at Killens Pond, but most cellular networks should receive a decent signal. Fires are permitted, but only in designated rings, and you’ll find drinking water available on-site. Remember to bring waste bags for your doggo, and have a pawesome time!

Wag! does not allow or encourage Pet Care Providers to bring dogs to parks.
