We go to Trap Pond year round and it is never crowded, even at the height of summer. We bring our own kayaks and put them in at the ramp, then kayak the entire pond, through many alcoves especially when there's high water. The picnic areas are always available and kept clean. We have rented paddleboats, rowboats and canoes. We... More

I love going for a walk here! I usually walk the long hike which is close to 5 miles. It's so peaceful and scenic! I feel safe walking by myself. They have paddleboats here for the summer time. There's a big lake that you walk around. Many different walking paths to venture on. They have some big pavilions you can... More

I finally made it down to Laurel, Delaware to kayak in Trap Pond and I am so glad my friend and I were able to go! It was well worth the trip. The Terrapin transports you into an entirely different world. The bald cypresses are amazing and the twists and turns brought you deeper into this amazing forest. We tried... More

The restrooms and showers are very well kept with small separate spot to keep your things dry. They have free bike rentals and pretty good trails that are shaded. It is a woodsy area, but it's mostly the tree canopy. They rent canoes, kayaks, pedal boats...we didn't because it's a little pricey. The sights are o.k. seems like like Delaware... More

This beautiful park, located several miles east of Laurel, DE, has much to offer - hiking and biking trails (horses allowed on some trails), canoeing, kayaking, pontoon boat tours, fishing, camping, picnicking, disk golf, Bald Cypress Nature Center and special programs presented by the park staff. Of particular interest is the fact that the park contains the northernmost natural stand... More

Trap pond is know for its bald cypress trees, but to get the real feel of this park rent a canoe and paddle to the beginning of the lake and enter the swamp trail. There are 2 marked water trails that take into what looks and feels like the bayou down south. Kids will love the adventure through the bald... More
