Beach camping in Connecticut guide


With over 300 miles of coastline, Connecticut is the perfect place to experience beach camping. Whether you're looking for a stay at a camping resort or a private campsite with a beach, you're covered with a smattering of coastal towns. Campers enjoy seaside camping with access to quaint vacation spots such as Madison, Mystic, Stony Creek, Old Saybrook, and Westport, most of which come with beach camping and amazing New England seafood. Looking for wilderness? Visit a Connecticut state park such as Hammonasset Beach State Park, Rocky Neck State Park, and Lake Waramaug State Park, where you can enjoy kayaking, fishing, swimming, and biking. If mountains and forests are more your thing, drive out to the Western Highlands where hiking trails are abundant near Macedonia Brook State Park, Housatonic Meadows State Park, and Black Rock State Park. These state parks all offer sandy beaches, swimming, fishing, and hiking. Whether you're on the Atlantic Ocean or the Connecticut River, beach camping is abundant.
