Officials say campsites, cabins and yurts at Lums Pond and Trap Pond State Parks will reopen Wednesday, and that Killens Pond State Park campsites and cabins will reopen Thursday. Campsites, cabins and cottages at Delaware Seashore and Cape Henlopen State Parks in Sussex County remain closed.

State wildlife areas also were to reopen Wednesday for duck hunting and recreational activities, except for Assawoman in Sussex County.
