DOVER (Oct. 23, 2014) – Campsites are still available this weekend for special programs at Lums Pond State Park in Bear and Killens Pond State Park in Felton.

Lums Pond State Park hosts the Halloween Hoot on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 2 to 7 p.m.  The public is welcome to this family-friendly program held at the campground. Campers are admitted for $3; all others pay a $5 program fee. From 2 to 5 p.m., children will enjoy face-painting, pumpkin-painting, crafts, games, hayrides, vendors and music.  Food will be available throughout the day. The evening will feature a costume parade around a decorated campsite to go trick-or-treating, a concert and campfire. 

At Killens Pond State Park, a Halloween Weekend Celebration is on hand on Oct. 24 and 25 in the campground. Children and families may join the fun by making scarecrows, wearing costumes, decorating campsites, taking hayrides and hikes after dark, and warming up by a cozy campfire. Fees and schedules are available by calling the Killens Pond Nature Center at 302-284-4299 or visiting   

These events promise no tricks…just treats. Prizes will be awarded in various categories. Families can stay the night in the campground - if they dare - or come and enjoy the day.
