I WOULDN'T GO BACK

Comments about the campground first… This campground is ok. If you're looking for a long drive into the woods with not a lot around, this is your place. It is admittedly quiet. Keep in mind, there is no place to dispose of garbage. So be prepared to haul it out. And there are no places to buy supplies if you forget anything. You will have to drive at least 15-20 miles. So be sure you are prepared or be willing to drive. Also, I concur that any of the sites along the road are terrible(e.g. sites 3-5). The road is a main road and is very noisy. There are bathrooms and showers(one per bathroom.) They are mostly clean. And there is a place to get water and to wash your dishes. Sites 3& 4 are not even separated by trees. So best not to book them unless you want to get to know your neighbors. I can't speak to the other sites. One word of caution… This campground has a zero-tolerance alcohol policy. As with most campgrounds, the website does say"no alcohol". Unlike most, if you bring beer, you can expect to be kicked out without notice. No warnings. Full disclosure, my family booked several sites here and was asked to leave because we had beer with us. We were not rowdy, disruptive or belligerent. We are not kids. We're 40 something professionals with kids of our own. We have all camped in every New England state for many years and had traveled from several different states to be there. We have never had a problem anywhere else. Did we violate the policy? Yes, we did. But that said, I have never camped anywhere that the policy was enforced. Therefore, if you go to Granville, be sure to take the policy seriously.

Camp site No. 11

Def the best campsite in the area very secluded in comparison to the other sites available. Originally booked site No. 9 but when we got there the park ranger was awesome and let us switch last second. Trails are right near the sites so def scope out your spot before purchase. Has a full shower/bath and sink for washing very well kept and water pump rnot to far from the site. Every site has a huge bear box and some sites you can park on but not all sites.

First to Review
Granville State Forest....

Located just over the CT border near Granby, Granville is a tiny secluded campsite. The problem is you can't trust the scale of the camp map online. We thought we had booked the most secluded site only to find that the sites are about 15 feet from each other. Not very enjoyable. Although there are a few sites that would be good for large groups. It is still a nice visit for a day hike. Tons of trials right off the campground. And lots of fishing off the Farmington River and local pond.
