This campground had lots of cool features for kids!

The “Fun Zone” had a variety of inflatable slides and obstacle courses.

This campground also had two pools (one for the kids, and one for the adults) but the pools were not open for the season yet.DSC06259

We enjoyed walking around the campground, sitting around the campfire, and cooking up an incredible feast of crabs, clams, shrimp, filet mignon,

corn, potatoes, onions, broccoli, and asparagus with our group of friends! YUM!

Just a short drive brought us to a beautiful hike in Nolde Forest.

It was a fun weekend filled with good friends, fun conversation, interesting adventures, and delicious food!

Although we were at the dock diving event all day and didn’t spend much time at the campground, we did observe that this campground was clean, and that the staff were very helpful and nice.
Holiday Travl-L-Park is situated very conveniently near many historical attractions, and outdoor activities.

The bathrooms were extremely clean, and the staff was more than friendly.  If you stay at this campground, be sure to ask about fire rings – some sites have them, and others do not.

 

 

Killens Pond State Park, Felton, Delaware

Cello was involved in a dock diving event at the Dover Days Festival in Dover Delaware this past weekend, so we hunkered down at Killens Pond State Park, about 25 minutes from the dock diving event.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Killens Pond.  The campsites were arranged in small loops.  We stayed on campsite D5 (loop D, campsite 5), and had a nice sized private space with a view of the pond from our living space, and a wooded scene out our rear bay window.

The campground was clean, and have several campground hosts located throughout the campground.  We had an issue with our electric during our stay, and the campground host on our loop couldn’t have been more helpful.

The campground had a pretty hiking trail that ran along the pond and through the park.  The trail was very flat and well-maintained.  photo 3 (2)

This campground only has full hook-ups on the campground host sites, however our site had electric and water.  There is a well-leveled and easily accessible dump station located on your way out of the campground.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Killens Pond, and very much enjoyed the “tent-camping” feel we got from the rustic, wooded setting of our site.  We would definitely return to this campground if Cello is involved in the same dock diving event in Dover, De this time next year.

Lake in Wood Resort, Narvon, PA

October 2013

Lake in Wood Resort…Probably the coolest campground we’ve been to yet!  Also one of thee prettiest, and well-kept campgrounds!  This campground also had wood carvings and totem poles everywhere!  In addition, the “cabins” you could rent were not cabins at all – – they were a double-decker bus, tee-pee, caboose, etc!  Cello rates this one 5 paws!

We had lots  of company on this trip! Friends Brandi, Stan, their daughter, Payton, and dog, Guinness (they just bought a travel trailer and this was their very first trip with it!!) , Aunt Joyce and Uncle Johnny, and friends Chris and Cindy with their dog, and Cello’s boyfriend, Memphis!
