Break Out of Hibernation Mode

Posted by Schaefer's Canal House on 11/19/2014 to Restaurant
Just because your boat is in hibernation mode, doesnít mean you have to be, too. Make the most of the off-season while your water-going vessel settles down for a long winterís nap. With daytime temperatures averaging about 63 to 66 degrees Fahrenheit, and nighttime lows hovering around 45, itís the perfect time of year to get a dose of nature with hiking and camping out under a canopy of colorful leaves in the Chesapeake Bay area.

Less than ten minutes from Shaeferís Canal House is Lums Pond State Park where youíll find the largest natural freshwater pond in Delaware. While certain areas are closed off to hikers during the winter months for hunting, there is still plenty to do in this multipurpose park.

There are plenty of trails to hike along the bay and lots of nature to experience. Circle the pond on Swamp Forest Trail or take the view in from above with the Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course. Zip across the pond and over trees while safely harnessed to steel cable and experience the land from a completely new perspective.

Camping is available year-round complete with amenities like modern showers and electrical hookups at each of its sites. When winter comes and snow falls, itís time to break out those cross-country skis from their hibernation or tune up that snow mobile, because Lums Pond State Park is ready and waiting for you to enjoy.

Another short drive east, and youíll hit Fort Dupont State Park in Delaware City. Located right on the Delaware River, Fort Dupont is for those who enjoy their nature in a more leisurely fashion. With more than 300 acres of marsh to enjoy, this park is also open year round and features flat trail hiking, camping, and fishing.

Donít be a bear this fall and winter season. Break out of hibernation mode, and get your nature fix while visiting the Chesapeake Bay Area. When youíve had enough of the outdoors, youíre only minutes away from Shaeferís Canal House, where the food is good and the atmosphere is warm.
