Travel Tips: When planning on staying at the campground during the summer season, make your reservations in advance as it fills to capacity quickly. Since Killens Pond State Park is in the center of the state, it is an excellent idea to allow time to visit the other State Parks. The beaches of Cape Henlopen and Delaware Seashore, the urban oasis of White Clay Creek and the Brandywine Zoo are just a few examples of what can be reached within an hour and a half drive from Killens Pond.
