Lily Pond under management of Delaware State Forest
Through an agreement with Pike County, DCNR has taken over management of Lily Pond. Pike County erected a pavilion and is having a restroom facility as well as picnic amenities installed. All improvements are to be completed by the end of summer 2013.
 
Don't Move Firewood
To help protect the forest from invasive insects that can kill trees and devastate the ecosystem, please do not transport firewood over long distances. Firewood can harbor insects such as emerald ash borer. Cut or purchase your firewood where you intend to burn it.
