If you have a larger boat, boat ramp for Haven lake across the street from the property. ~~~ Deep water, no children, please. I only have one campsite, so you have the place to yourselves. The property is on the edge of town, so there is some distant highway noise.

Between the Ponds is a beautiful, quite, serene place to camp. I just stayed for 1 night and it was the perfect quick get-away...the total opposite of over-crowded public camping spot. The view of the 2 ponds is picturesque, I would definitely recommend staying here. ..and I can't wait to come back!

This spot is gorgeous and Michele is an absolutely wonderful host! The space is not quite fully set up and you have to bring your own firewood, but the large number of pine trees offer plenty of kindling. You still get a little bit of noise from the roads in the distance, but the trade off is that there is a Tractor Supply Co. and a WalMart a short distance away if you forget any supplies. This is a great spot for novice campers, but be careful with your camp fire, the pine trees offer good kindling, but also an easy opportunity for fires to spread.

What a great spot! This little strip of land between two ponds is picturesque and bucolic, a perfect escape from life in the city (or the suburbs). Highly recommended for tent campers and people who like to be away from the generator/RV crowd.

Between the Ponds is a great place to relax and get some fresh air! The property is beautiful! Two pristine spring fed ponds with beavers, turtles, turkeys, bald eagles, and deer are great to explore. Michele was super helpful and accommodating offering to pick up firewood if I didn't have any and if I needed any extra cold weather gear (as the temperature dropped lower than anticipated). I highly recommend staying here whether solo camping or with a group! You'll have a blast!

So beautiful and quiet. The site is literally between two ponds. Michele was an amazing host, gave us pointers for the area and we can't wait visit again.

This site was great. My dog loved swimming in the ponds. There were plenty of trees that offered shade and places to hang hammocks. It was very private and Michele, the host, was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend this site highly.

We had a great trip at between the ponds. Michelle was great, easy communications, and the location is just beautiful - 10x better then you would get at a public campsite. Well worth the very small premium. This site is very private but conveniently located only about 5 minutes to Milford where there are a lot of restaurants, shopping, etc.

For our 'dog-friendly' trip itinerary we arrived, set up camp at the ponds, drove to dog-friendly Cape Henlopen SP about 45 minutes away, then had dinner in Milford, chatted around the campfire, and crashed in our tents. The next day we got up and out at 4 am to watch the sunrise at dog-friendly Assateague National Seashore and spent the day exploring there. Henlopen and Assateague are really great places to enjoy the beach without wall-to-wall crowds at the other shore beaches. And you can take your pups with you as well!!
