Great Camping Destinations

With its miles of coastline, abundance of rivers and streams, and endless wooded hills and valleys, Connecticut is an ideal place to set up your tent, fit out your cabin or park your RV for a scenic camping vacation. Not sure where to start your planning? Here are just a few of the ways to go.

Rustic Cabin Camping

The State of Connecticut now offers rustic cabin rentals within many state parks. The cabins are 14 feet by 17 feet with two rooms (and a front porch) and can sleep six – no kitchens or bathrooms. Stay for a week or two and you’ll truly feel light years away from home.

Camping in an Amusement Park

Lake Compounce Campground is a new feature of Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Bristol. After you’ve enjoyed the features of the amusement park, your family will be able to retire to the campground, with its tent and RV sites, huts, and cabins. There are even deluxe tipis that can sleep up to five.

Pet Friendly

Since most pet dogs suffer from extreme FOMO (fear of missing out), it’s good to know that an increasing number of Connecticut campgrounds and RV resorts have rolled out the welcome mat for them.
