Just across the Sound from the Hamptons, you can call your stay at these beach-front sites “glamping” even if you’re sleeping in a two-person nylon tent. That said, the Hammonasset Beach campgrounds can accommodate groups of any size—ADA accessible, with over 500 sites that range from cabins to tents to electric, this spot is like a small beachfront village. Campers have access to potable water and ice, firewood, concessions, and plenty of life-guarded beaches, and available activities run the gamut from volleyball and bingo to ocean fishing and river canoeing. The best part though? Waking up to the sound of ocean waves crashing nearby.

No privacy at all, we camped right in front of the visitors center which kept their bright lights on all night.

Hammonasset Beach State Park Campground is huge, family-friendly, and has direct beach access from the campground. There is no lifeguard on duty at the campground beach but lifeguards patrol the beach a mile or so north within the park. Smaller (car-top) boats can be launched from this area as well.

The campsites do NOT include a fire pit (or grill). You must bring your own or there are fire tub rentals available at the campground store.

The park includes a Nature Center complete with exhibits and activities, and hiking trails. Bald eagles can be seen on the nature reserve.

Expect long lines at the state park entrance fee station on the weekend if the weather is nice.

Been camping here with family for years, great place for 'glamping' families! Dogs are allowed in the state park (leashed) but not in the camp ground. Most campers have trailers or RV's but there are some great tent sites too. Book at least 6 months out for holiday weekends! Beach is extremely close, love listening to the waves crashing at night.
