Our campground is part of our 12+ acre property, which is home to The Sandbox Indoor Beach Sports and Events Center. The property has very primitive camping areas out back, though we are currently developing them for better access and usability. Throwing a tent up in the grass out back near the woods is super simple, and RV or car camping within our parking lot is available now!
Hiking and mountain biking trails are accessible directly from our property. A combination of state-owned and privately owned adjoining properties offer 1,000s of acres for you to explore and enjoy on foot or on your mountain bike.
And we are only a few minutes off of I-95. You'll be close to local beaches, downtown Mystic, a bunch of wineries or whatever floats your boat. It's a fantastically accessible and central location in southeastern Connecticut.

Unique “mystical” spot!
So unique and a perfect location! It’s less than 10 minutes from both downtown Mystic and Olde Mystick. You’re not going to feel like you’re completely isolated out in the woods, (but that’s clear in the booking.) The campsites are super cute and easy to get to. They have nice fire pits and chairs with plenty of firewood. If you’re RV camping you’ll likely need to park in the parking lot, but you still have access to a fire pit. The host was super communicative and accommodating! My favorite part was a beautiful and unexpected hiking trail in the woods just off the property. We would love to come back and spend more time both here and exploring Mystic!
Brendan has done an amazing job with this property! The business area is beautiful and sits at the front of the property, which gives privacy to the camping areas in the back woods. I stayed in Site 2, which was up at the back of the property on the ridge. I couldn't have asked for a better primitive site! There is plenty of space for a decent sized tent (I only had a 2 person tent), chairs and a cooking table, plus space to enjoy the firepit. I plan to be in that area more often and will absolutely book this site again!
Exactly what we were looking for
The site was perfect! Tucked away off a lovely little trail from the parking lot, it offers just enough seclusion to create the deep woods camping experience. Shower facilities are fantastic, and the hosts were phenomenal. Great resources to us, and have fantastic advice on where to launch our Kayak. Would definitely come back, thanks for a great weekend!
Quiet stay in the woods...
If you're looking for an authentic and primitive camping experience look no further. This area is very wooded with three small areas set aside for campers. This is not a conventional camp ground where there dozens of other campers around though (and I'm glad because that's not what we were looking for). The host met us upon our arrival and welcomed us to the property. He was very polite and nonchalant. Overall, our experience was awesome - we had a great time here.
Perfect primitive host!
If you're in Mass or RI and looking for a more primitive camping setup look no further. If what you're looking for walking into a forest and surviving a night or more with however much gear you want to take, or don't want to, this is a great place to try out.
We went here after a few rainy days and it rained during our stay so it made it more difficult but for what we were looking for it was perfect. Definitely somewhere to try. Brendan was very accommodating and made himself available for anything if need be.
