Cabins Continued from page 30 lent, and a six-mile wilderness ca- noe trail offers campers an oppor- tunity to view a part of Delaware's natural beauty not often seen. Birdwatching is a popular activity, and observant hikers may find great blue herons, owls, hum- mingbirds, bald eagles and the rarely seen pileated woodpeckers. There are 152 campsites under the tall lobloily pines on the pond's northern shore, half of them equipped with water and electric hookups. Tents and recre- ational vehicles regularly dot the campgrounds from early spring through Thanksgiving. To attract more campers, park personnel have constructed two modern version yurts, complete with overhead fans, waterproof fabric siding, bug-meshed win- dows and sturdy wooden decks. In addition, two three-room cabins, including a screened porch and sleeping loft, are open for campers. A third cabin is under construction and should be avail- able for reservation by Labor Day. The cabins are beautifully made, with hardwood floors, ta- bles and chairs. Each is equipped with baseboard heating and a win- dow air conditioning unit, perfect for the long camping season that Trap Pond offers. The cabins offer plenty of sleeping space with a double bed platform and bunk beds in one room and the spacious loft area above. Cabin rents are $38 nightly and $228 weekly for Delaware resi- dents and $48 nightly and $276 weekly for out-of-state residents. Yurts are $32 nightly for state residents and $36 nightly for non- residents. Canoe, rowboat and paddle boat rentals are also avail- able at the park. A public boat launch area serves those who bring their own fishing boat. More information and reserva- tions for yurts or cabins, call 875- 5153 during regular Monday-Fri; day work hours.
