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.

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.

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.

Positively unconventional

The Sandbox is a positively unconventional and affordable way to visit a very expensive and often over-booked part of the country, especially during summer. Brendan was super-relaxed and accommodating of a same-day booking to get coastal relief during a heat wave and offered suggestions for things to do. Access to the very clean and spacious wash rooms/showers by the indoor sand volleyball courts was a bonus in the extreme heat. And Brendan even lent us a volleyball to use during our day travels exploring the coast. He shared plans to build the camping facilities out further, and we look forward to coming back, but we loved it just the way it is.

Had a great experience here. Brendan was an amazing host who was very helpful and welcoming. The camping was very secluded and private, and made us really feel we were off the grid which is what we were looking for. Can't wait to come here again soon!

The Sandbox was my first Hipcamp booking and ended up being quite the treat. Brendan was accommodating with scheduling and met us at our convenience. He gave a little tour, pointed out nearby hiking trails and gave us great recommendations for nearby activities. Since we had the site to ourselves, it felt like we were camping in our backyard.
