DescriptionThere may be no more enchanting location in the state to hike, fish, camp, or picnic. A canoe trek into the swamp will bring you face to face with abundant wildlife, wildflowers, and the graceful baldcypress trees flourishing in the swamp's wetlands. Trap Pond State Park hosts the northernmost natural stand of baldcypress trees on the East Coast. Our campground is nestled along the pond's northern shore under a forested canopy of hardwoods, beneath towering loblolly pines.
