Killen's Pond State Park centers around a 66-acre millpond fed by the Murderkill River. But don't let the sinister name fool you. This wooded retreat has something for everyone, including a large water park. But if it's waters of the natural variety you seek, you're in luck.

Visitors to Killen's Pond State Park can rent: canoes, kayaks, rowboats, paddle boats, and even surf bikes. And it's not a bad spot to go fishing either. Killen's Pond is known for its American eel, black crappie, bluegill, chain pickerel, large-mouth bass, pumpkinseed sunfish, and white perch.

We suggest you check Delaware's latest fish-consumption advisory before harvesting a fish. These can be found at, keyword "fish advisory." And whenever in doubt, simply practice catch-and-release fishing, a fun pastime by all accounts.
