Lakeside camping in Connecticut guide


From the Atlantic shores to the Western Highlands, the New England state of Connecticut has a lot to offer in lakeside camping areas. Connecticut campers have many state parks to choose from, such as Hammonasset Beach State Park and Rocky Neck State Park in the eastern portion of the state, where you can find family-friendly campsites to kayak and be close to the water’s edge. Near Macedonia State Park, Kettletown State Park, and the nearby Pachaug State Forest, tent sites and rustic cabins await near biking and hiking trails. Lake Waramaug State Park is another perfect place for family-friendly lake camping in Connecticut, where swimming, fishing, and paddling await on its clear waters. Whether you’re looking for a camping resort with electric hookups, wifi, disc golf, volleyball court, and swimming pool or simple pet-friendly tent sites with a fire pit and picnic table, you can find the perfect lake camping getaway in Connecticut.
