Awesome secluded spot with pond
Reespect is a hidden gem. If you are looking for a quiet campsite that is more secluded from the over crowded ones this summer, this is your spot. The owner is a really nice guy who is looking to open his property to families who love the great outdoors. I cant wait to come back here and see all the improvements he makes. There are two pretty large lakes filled with tons of frogs, fish, turtles, snakes and more. Upon arriving we saw a few turtles in and out of the water. We saw a black snake swim by too. Don’t go to bed too early without seeing all the frogs come out at night; but, it was even better going to sleep to the sounds of the frogs and view of the pond. As any other campsite. Be prepared with bug spray and watch out for ticks. We had a great time and wish we could have stayed longer. Before we left we took the owners advice and walked some of the trails and went around to the other sides of the lake. I would definitely bring fishing rod and stay for a full day or two because Im sure theres some great catches out there and the sound of the great outdoors make it even better.

Tent camping with a view!
My stay at Edward's pond site was wonderful. Awesome view all around. He was very accommodating, warm and friendly. I got lucky as nobody booked to camp that day but me so I had the entire place to myself. There are three sites, I chose mine in the middle. There is a very clean porter potty, and there is wood all over the place for you to burn in your camp fire. There is a small trail behind the pond you can take to just roam a bit as well. The place is situated near stores and towns, and is only 30 minutes away from the ocean in any direction; Cape Henlopen up north or Dewey beach. After I pitched my tent I drove out to the ocean and got there very quickly in time for the sunset. I will definitely be coming back here again to camp. It's a cool spot and Edward is good people. He'll greet you and chat with you and show you around the property.

Peaceful Pondside Camping!
We really enjoyed our experience camping out by Edward's pond! We had the place to ourselves the first night and Edward told us we were his very first hipcampers ever! He was nice enough to gather us a bunch of firewood from around the property before we arrived, that plus a sack we bought at the local grocery store was more than enough for the night. In the morning we took the dog for a walk around the pond, it's a really lovely loop maybe around 1/4 mile long. The next day there were a few other groups of campers, the sites are close enough that you're aware the other folks are there but not right on top of each other - so it was nice to have neighbors. Edward went around to all the sites a few times just making sure everyone was comfortable, he seems like a really sweet guy who just wants everyone staying by his place to have a good time. There are lots of trees so the sites stay shady and it doesn't get too hot, plus there are lots of great places to hang a camping hammock (though in this area I'd highly recommend a bug net). The port-a-john was very clean and in great shape, but I guess that's no surprise since we were the first ones using it. Our only complaint is there were a lot of ticks around the property. Not Edward's fault or anything that's just going to be true of any woods in this area - just a reminder to other campers to come prepared.

Camping with dogs and our 5 yr old!
Ed was so accommodating! He made sure our spot was perfect and the property is beautiful. The pond looks across to tall pine trees. The best part is that the property is 30 min from all the Delaware beaches. We found a dog friendly beach (even in season) in cape henlopen which was a highlight. We will be back again for sure and this time plan a full beach day with the dogs, and then a full relaxation day at the pond!

Our family had a wonderful stay at Edwards camping spot. We stopped for one night to rest on our way to the beach. We camped by a peaceful water pond, felt safe and very accommodated. Edward provided all of the necessities like a porter potty, firewood, bbq grill, a table and chairs. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean + Serene
Our time at Ed's was great! Nice and secluded, the pond view is gorgeous and he was super friendly and kind. When we needed to borrow a can opener he was right there to help! The grounds are beautiful and tranquil, the bugs weren't bad, and the port-a-potty was clean and well maintained. We had neighbors but felt a decent sense of privacy/space to not be right on top of each other. I definitely recommend!
