Where is Killens Pond?

5025 Killens Pond Rd, Felton, DE 19943

You’ll find Killens Pond State Park just south of Dover in Felton, Delaware. This area was originally home to several Native American sites and hunting camps. It was later established as a mill pond in the late 1700s, surrounded by 66 – acres of diverse native species of tress, wildlife and vegetation. In 1965, Killens Pond officially became a Delaware State Park. Today, this hidden gem is known for its outdoor activities, year-round camping opportunities, secluded trails, and fun outdoor waterpark.
