Town of Barkhamsted

A pocket of natural serenity tucked into the hills of southern Litchfield County with the wild and scenic West Branch of the Farmington River running through it. Barkhamsted is dotted with gleaming reservoirs and lakes offering sparkling respite to those passing by as well as public beaches, state forests, campsites and open areas near the river for gatherings, and numerous historical sites. A place out of time, Barkhamsted even has a drive-in theater in Pleasant Valley.
