For Nature Lovers: Delaware’s Trap Pond State Park

Trap Pond State Park, Delaware© 2009 Delaware State ParksAnglers and bird-watchers are drawn to the placid lake in this park, flush with loblolly pines, dogwoods, and many species of birds.

33587 Baldcypress Ln., Laurel

This wooded park surrounds a small, attractive lake where fishermen angle for perch, catfish, bass, pickerel, and sunfish. Rowboats, canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats are available for rent, and boat owners can launch their own.

Circle the entire park on the self-guiding five-mile Loblolly Trail, or hike along pine-forested trails. Many species of birds make their home here, including the great blue heron, the bald eagle, and the pileated woodpecker.

The Cypress Point Trail takes you to the nation’s most northern stand of cypress; a sandy beach and shaded lakeside picnic grove are popular spots, especially on summer weekends.

Park open year-round; facilities available Apr.–Oct. Admission charged.
