Our campsite is situated on a 1/2 acre wooded lot just 350 steps away from the Cove Road boat launch on beautiful Amston Lake. The lake is a pristine 188-acre retreat located in Lebanon and Hebron, CT. Swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, fishing, and sunbathing are all activities you can enjoy. Bring your own gear. There are no motor boats allowed so you can enjoy all of those activities in a peaceful environment. Two beaches are located 1/2 or 1 mile away from the campsite with ample parking at both should you choose to drive. Lebanon is a beautiful, rural community with several operating farms. Amston Lake is on the edge of the Airline Trail where you can enjoy hiking and biking for miles. The Connecticut casinos are about 30 minutes away. Outlet shopping is located at Foxwoods Casino or in Clinton and Westbrook. The CT and RI shore are 40-60 minutes away. New York and Boston are about 90 minutes away. We are close to so much, and yet you will feel like you are far away from it all. We hope you enjoy your stay!

The mentioned wooded lot is in between private gardens from several houses around and opposite. It felt very weird/not private to camp there (although you are a bit hidden within the trees). Toilet and shower are 1/2 a mile away. I think you cannot consider that as a site with toilet. (But it is mentioned in the description to be fair). Exactly enough space for two small tents. If it's on your route and you are looking for a cheap spot it might suffice...

Thank you for writing a review of Amston Lake Gateway. As the name of the site suggests, we are all about The Lake! If you are looking for a camp site that is inexpensive and provides you with lake privileges, then we are a good choice. If you are looking for a wilderness camping experience, then we are not a good choice. Our site as the pictures and description reveal is situated in a rural lake community with houses abutting the lot. The lot is heavily wooded, but it is only a 1/2 acre lot. I hope you enjoyed your stay, and had the opportunity to take advantage of the lake community.

Being novice campers, this site was perfect for us. It might not be rural or private enough for people looking to really be in the woods. You can see houses around you on all sides. But the site is thickly wooded and my daughters and I felt very safe and just secluded enough. Having the hose and the extension cord hook up made the weekend run much smoother too. The lake is absolutely beautiful and peaceful and serene even on Labor Day weekend. And while the property is not right on the lake, the walk to the boat launch is very easy and quick. I was glad we brought along our wagon for easy float transport! The beaches are great and a very quick drive. This is a great site if you’re looking for an easy weekend getaway at a stunning lake!
