Awesome place!

This is a really great place to camp. The shelter sites are large and private with access to hiking trails and make for a unique experience. The staff is friendly as well

Amazing staff

This was only our second camping trip and the staff here was absolutely amazing and nice. No electricity hook-up on the sites. The second day we stayed the water that came from the water source there was purple instead of clear like day one, but we brought enough drinking water just in case so it…

Great Weekend

This trip was too short!

We really liked this location, you can see your neighbors, but each site has nice space.

It was a quick walk down to the beach.

The LI sound is definitely different from the ocean, but still nice. There was a nice little camp store, and by the beach another store and…

Nice but too many rules

Most sites are crammed in, but we lucked out by changing sites to a quieter spot. Did not let people checkin until clock struck 11, no alcohol, no hammocks, no parking near store where they sell wood, no …. List goes on.

Decent campground

Not much to say as I haven't been here in years, but this review field is required in order to upload photos, which I think say more about the site than I can in a review.

This is our favorite family campsite

Cabins are always clean and stocked with firewood. Lots of hiking trails. Trading post is well stocked and volunteers are always friendly and able to answer any questions

Great area to camp with kids. The lots were large. Semi private with great view and nice walks to the water. Noise was not a problem overnight as to having problems with noises neighbors at other CT state parks.

Nice first outing with dogs

We purposefully chose a drive in spot close to home to try out our dogs in a tent for the first time. The site was lovely with a nice sized fire pit and grill. It was hidden back so gave us some privacy from the neighbors. We were only there one night and it’s not probably somewhere I’d stay more…

Great park for beach

Stayed at site 12. Sites are great overlooking the bay. Bathroom lights are bright. 10 would be better. I also like the corner sites as they are bigger. The 230-70 overlook the ocean which is great. Little pricey compared to nys parks. Electric and water is nice for pop up.

Hemlock hills

Great weekend campground. If you like the ct part of the AT it’s a great place to camp and get lost in the Litchfield hills.

Great park

Very well maintained and friendly staff will stay again when in the area. Does not have sewer hookups, but does have a dump station.

Good local experience

As a long islander is was a Good local experience. The state park is very well run and the facilities are clean. However there are too many loud families and the sites are too close in proximity for me. This place is great for a group/family getaway but those looking for a quiet nature retreat may…

A hidden gem...

99% off people don't even know this area exists. If you want a quiet piece of beautiful forest to truly rough it and go camping for a few days, then this is what you have been looking for. Less then 10 min drive from town, but hiking in and finding a suitable place to make camp has the feeling of…

Nice campground with nice facilities

The playground was awesome for our two year old. The tent sites had some shade, the showers and bathrooms were really nice.

Nice, easy getaway

This place is only an hour away from NYC with so much to do and see. These cabins are VERY rustic, four walls, a cot, and a fridge. You still feel like you are "roughing it" but with the convenience of a fridge. Absolutely zero phone service (for T-Mobile) which was AMAZING. There's a few very cute…
