Earlier this year I wrote a post about 2 hiking challenges I was so excited to do. I had every intention of doing them but somehow life got in the way and I never completed either, yet.
The first challenge was 16 state parks in 16 weeks.
The second challenge was the 52 hike challenge for 2016.
Here’s a link to the post if you’d like to read it.
I do plan to finish the 16 state parks but will do this by the end of 2016 not in 16 weeks which passed back in June.
And I may finish the 52 hike challenge because I started this challenge in February of this year so I still have time to finish this one as well.
Now back to my 3 best of Delaware State Parks we did recently in one day.
I wanted badly to camp at Trap Pond so for my birthday wish I set up a camping trip for hubby, the dogs and I for a long 4 day weekend.
I loved Trap Pond but the only thing is all the campsites are NOT drive up campsites.
Somehow I missed this on their website (it is clearly stated there) but luckily when I booked it I picked a site close to the parking lot so carrying everything from the car to the site wasn’t that bad.
Something we’ll keep in mind for next time because it’s close to the beach so it would be an excellent campground for late season day at the beach.
We had flooded trails, flooded roads, closed roads due to heavy rains prior to our visit but that didn’t stop us from getting out and exploring the area.
We ventured to 2 other state parks close by – Holts Landing and Delaware Seashore State Park – as well as camping at Trap Pond State Park.
That made 3 state parks in one day, a FUN adventure!
Enjoy the photo tour.
