Connecticut Family Camping

We've noticed that most of the campgrounds here in Connecticut are privately owned, or family owned and operated, which is a lot different than the Midwest US, where most campgrounds are put in charge of the Corps of Engineers.

Family operated campgrounds offer more of a personal touch and everyone is friendly.

Some do have strict camping rules though, and are more expensive than the state campgrounds

All of the campgrounds are scenic in one way or another, and some have special features like the RiverBend campground, where you can enjoy panning for minerals and exploring a mine.
