I'll have some jars of gravy on hand if needed.  Can also add other (more) veggies into roasted Stringbean/Potatoes.

We are trying to cut down on crock pots as there is not enough space or power for them all. We will have a ton of buffet frames with sterno to keep everything warm. We will provide foil pans with lids (1/2 and full size) for you to transfer your food into - then put on it the sternos to keep everything hot.

Both of my kids and an extra are coming so weíll be 2 adults and 2 teens and 1 almost teen.  I canít imagine Thanksgiving without apple pie so Iíll be bringing homemade butter toffee apple pie and whipped cream.

Our site (26) is apparently under construction and unsafe to occupy, so they moved us to 21.

I'm at the campground! I'm all alone (with the exception of the dog I kid napped for company) It's gorgeous, and the weather is perfect!

I'll be making green bean casserole

Check-in is at 1 and the firewood is coming at 3. Can't wait to see everyone!
Happy Camping -Cindy

Jealous!  We are leaving after I get off work but that gives us an entire extra day by arriving late!  Also less traffic!
My goal in life is to be the person my dog thinks I am.

Since there can never be enough mashed potatoes, we will also make 5 lbs of Mash besides the breads.

Hi Everyone, it was another great weekend of camping with old and new friends.  Even 4 families invited their older kids to experience and enjoy our Thanksgiving camping meal.  Rain overnight last night but beautiful and unseasonably warm weather.   

Lums Pond is a beautiful state park with full hookup sites.  It is in an open grass area field with large sites that have limited shade.  FYI - The campground will not allow you to access the campground or your site until exactly 1pm check-in.

Big Thanks to everyone for some amazing food, tables and 10x10 canopies.
- thanks EwwwBugs (my wife) for loving and putting up with me while we plan these events.
- thanks mknott57 & HuskyCampers for starting our huge group fire.
- thanks MariskaHaritay for ordering and coordinating the cord of firewood for the weekend.
- thanks ElmiraFudd for being the wagon master for this group rally and continued Facebook entertainment.
- thanks CampingPhil for everything... the coffee, chaffing dishes, direction, database wizardry and more.
- thanks 2HappyCampers for collecting donations for the event gathering site, firewood, turkeys, etc
- thanks LoneLock for hauling a lot of the event gear onsite
- BIG thanks to chiefbowes, samebutdifferent, 2happycampers and thingette for deep frying 5 turkeys to go with everyone's sides.
- thank you to everyone who helped make this 10th year thanksgiving rally another great one, sorry if I forgot something.

2018, here we come.

I wanted to let anyone who had any issues finding the park entrance at night, I contacted Delaware DNR. Here is their reply.
Hello Mr. Mulligan,
 
Thanks for letting us know about this.  There is a street light at the campground entrance.  It sounds like there is a good chance that either the bulb or the sensor has gone bad.  We will check on it and notify the power company to fix it.
 
Thanks,
