Lums Pond State Park is built around the largest freshwater pond in Delaware. The park features excellent fishing, sports facilities, hiking trails and more on its 1790 acres on the north side of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. Covering 200 acres, Lums Pond itself offers a sandy beach for sunbathing (swimming is not allowed), and boat rentals provide water-bound recreation in the summer months. A boat launching ramp and two piers allow easy access to the water.
