Delaware State Parks Campgrounds Sold Out
for Memorial Day Weekend

DOVER (May 23, 2014) – All campgrounds in Delaware State Parks are completely sold out for Memorial Day weekend. The full accommodations include cabins and campsites at Killens Pond, Trap Pond, Lums Pond and Cape Henlopen State Parks.

There are sites still available for the weekend of May 30 – June 1, and state park officials encourage campers to reserve now for the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends, as those holidays fill up quickly. 

 “After an historically difficult winter and a cool spring, people are anxious to enjoy the outdoors and all of the special things our parks offer,” said Delaware State Parks Director Ray Bivens. “Visitors can hike, bike, fish, enjoy the sun and sand at the beach, take a Go Ape Tree-Top Adventure followed by a quick trip to the Brandywine Zoo to see the new bald eagle exhibit, or stop by the Killens Pond Water Park during their stay at the campgrounds.”

Delaware Seashore State Park’s Southeast Day Area has undergone an extensive renovation and will be open this weekend with expanded parking to accommodate day users at the guarded ocean beach.  The campground will reopen June 19; however, reservations are open now and are filling quickly at this very popular beach park.   

Camping and pavilion reservations may be made online at or by phone to 1-877-987-2757. Additional information about all Delaware State Parks’ sites, events and activities can be found at

Vol. 44, No. 173
