From the Berkshire Mountains to the scenic beaches of the Long Island Sound, Connecticut brings together all the best of New England camping. A trip to Connecticut's northwest corner brings easy access to Berkshire Mountain camping. With a patchwork of national forests and state parks covering these hills, it's easy to find the perfect campsite high in the mountains, deep in the woods, or right on the banks of a swimming hole. The Connecticut River runs right through the state, and if you travel by kayak or canoe, it's easy to find boat-in campsites along the water where you can hunker down right beside the wide, ambling river. Rocky, jagged coastline forms Connecticut's border to the south, and the beach camping can't be beat. Set up your tent right on the open sand and enjoy the calm waters of the Long Island Sound. New England locals and visitors from far off alike are bound to be impressed by the diverse camping opportunities of this quaint state.
