Trap Pond State Park - Laurel, MD
Updated: Sep 7, 2022
Kayaking at Trap Pond State Park in Laurel, MD. is one of our favorite places to kayak and picnic in Delaware. You can rent rowboats, pedal boats, canoes and kayaks. Get up close and personal to the bald cypress trees while floating on the freshwater. There is also hiking trails and camping.
The pond was created in the late 1700s to power a sawmill during the harvest of the large bald cypress from the area. In the 1930s the government purchased the pond and surrounding farmland and began to develop the area for recreation.
Trap Pond became one of Delaware’s first state parks in 1951.
