Why Not Acres

12 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents17 acres · Frankford, DE
HORSES WELCOME!  Why not run your horse on the beach, then come to our campsites to relax for the rest of your day.  There is a fenced pasture positioned next to the sites so you can see your faithful friend enjoying some grass or hay.  We have a new Zinger 29' trailer set up with a bunk room and another bedroom, full kitchen and bathroom.  It can easily sleep six people.  If you have your own RV, we have a full hook up at the same area.  The pasture where your horse stays will also have hay, water and shelter with a run-in.  This is a sanctuary for our animals.  We have nine animals here, four horses (some minnies) and five donkeys (some minnies).  By staying here, you will be helping us to support our animals.  We are in Frankford, De which is close to all the beaches and parks.  There are many shopping adventures awaiting you, either outlets or upcycle stores.  If you just want to relax, there is a small pond out back stocked with bass and turtles.  We have 17+ acres but we only use the front five acres and leave the rest for the deer, foxes, eagles, hawks and whatever else shows up.  We believe this is Heaven on earth and would love to share it will you.  So please come, stay at our farm and relax.  We are here year round.

Historic Blueberry Lane Farm!

5 sites · RVs, Tents36 acres · Frankford, DE
Pitch your tent or park your RV on our historic 36-acre blueberry farm. Picnic tables, charcoal grills, and fire pits are located on lots. We  are a newly renovated farm that has an almost 60-year history. Very close to Delaware and Ocean City Beaches!  Our property is also  monitored by security cameras.Once owned by Tom Ryan and part of the 100+ acres of Ryan's Berry Farm, Kingsley Orchards now owns the middle 36 acres and market building of the historic farm. It was purchased at Sheriff Sale by Tony Morgan in June 2016 and 10+ months of extreme labor and renovation were required to bring the very neglected farm back to life.  Efforts paid off and the farm and market opened in June 2017 with a beautiful crop of blueberries and many multi-generational customers coming back with their children. The best outcome has been the opportunity to share growing food with children and helping them learn a love for outdoors and farming. Many of the customers remember their own grandparents bringing them to the farm! We had customers from age 1 to 89 picking blueberries. Meghan was able to retire from her state job in August to devote her full time and attention to the farm and family. Special accommodations and transportation options are  available to all customers! We also offer  a climate controlled restored marketplace for parties, events and several campsites on our farm.

Fool's Grove

2 sites · RVs, TentsDelmar, MD
When I was a stay at home mom I tried my hand at homesteading. Then I realized it's really hard work to parent and farm at the same time! Today I still have grapes blueberries and figs but that's about it. I currently operate a pet sitting business and find myself busy and satisfied working with cats, dogs, chickens, and occasionally reptiles!  If you need a pet sitter while you are at Fools Grove, feel free to ask!

The best camping near Trap Pond State Park guide

Overview

About

Immerse yourself (or at least your boat) in a wetland forest at Trap Pond State Park. The park is home to the northernmost natural stand of bald cypress in the United States. This unique ecosystem is home to rare and elusive birds, plus a diverse bounty of flora and fauna. The best way to explore the swamp is by canoe, kayak, or paddle boat. Get lost among the trees and become one with your inner Thoreau. There’s also a sweet trail around the pond, a nature center, playground, and shoreside campground—everything you need for a down 'n' dirty vacation at one of the First State’s first state parks.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Trap Pond State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural beauty is at its peak. Summer offers a full bloom of activities, though it can be quite warm. Winters are less crowded but can be chilly, so prepare accordingly.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's website for any alerts or closures before your visit.
  • Ensure you have all necessary permits for activities like fishing or boating.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking and bring insect repellent to ward off mosquitoes.
  • Remember to pack out all trash and leave the park as pristine as you found it.
  • Accessible facilities are available; inquire at the visitor center for more information.
