The One Hikeable Pond In Delaware That’s Simply Breathtaking In The Fall

Delaware’s state parks are stunning year round, and they’re all very accessible to the public! No worries about giant mountains or dangerous wildlife in this state. One of my favorite fall activities is hiking Lums Pond, Delaware’s largest freshwater pond that’s surrounded by breathtaking scenery and painted with the brilliant colors of fall.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Of course, you can camp here in the fall… but I should disclose that the woods behind the pond are rumored to be haunted, and this might be the creepiest place in Delaware to pitch a tent.
