Small, Quiet, Cute!

Hawes is one of the few campgrounds in CT that's dog friendly. The sites are nice and large, with room for trailers, and they also have a few cabin sites as well.

There is access to the Farmington River from the campground for your fishing and paddling pleasure.

In the summer, this place is mosquito central, so bring lots of bug spray or be eaten alive!

The camp office only sells ice and firewood, but there's a Stop and Shop nearby, as well as a couple of general stores.

Last but not least - no cellphone service, which is either a good or bad thing, depending on how you feel about it.

Cosy, comfortable, quirky, chilled

We were passing through Connecticut and needed a place to crash. Loved this campsite! Very chilled and secluded in your own site. I liked that it felt like a litrle community but still quotr private. They provide ice and firewood which is cool. Loved our camp site, lots of trees around too. Was very buggy so bring bug reppelant! Hot showers were fab and they have water and toikets too. Very easy to drive too as well snd friendly staff on site avail till 6pm. Great spot. Liked that the toilets were close from every site!

No dispersed camping.

 tried to just do the check boxes but it wouldnt let me submit without a bunch of dates i dont know.

Favorite place to camp in CT....

Well spaced out lots, you have a lot of privacy, there is a drive in movie theater 10 min away (we always tailgate a movie as tradition) it’s close to a bunch of quaint towns.

Love camping here the sites are spaced apart nicely

Its a great place to camp

Beautiful, quiet, great fishing, great hiking!

Hot showers and clean bathrooms are available

First to Review
Fishing the Farmington

First time here this past fourth of july!

Excellent campground for tent campers. Right on the farmington river and off the main road with access to many many other favorable fishing spots.

Definitely need to come back. Great rates on all sites. Excellent amenities available within a short walk. Extremely friendly relatable staff and excellent wood/ice supply.
