Kayak Camping

1 site · RV, Tent1 acre · Groton, CT
Pack your kayaks and camp at this hidden gem in the heart of Jupiter Point. This campsite is within walking distance of a private deeded access beach! If kayaks aren’t your speed, the Bayberry boat launch is just one road over from the site. Pine Island, Bushy Point, and all of Fishers Island Sound offer endless exploration opportunities for adventurous campers. A map to a secluded secret beach, accessible only by kayaks, will be provided upon booking. There’s only enough room at this landing for a small dinghy, guaranteeing you the VIP private beach experience you’ve always dreamed of. **Warning:** ⚠️ This experience is for the most advanced campers as there are little to no amenities—no electricity, no water, and no bathrooms. However, there is a charcoal Weber grill on site! This is my first attempt at this. If it gains popularity, amenities will be added. So check back soon!

The Sandbox Campground

3 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents12 acres · Groton, CT
The Sandbox campground was born from The Sandbox Indoor Beach Sports and Events facility, which mainly focuses on providing year round beach volleyball. We bought the property in 2015 and opened the facility in 2019. As it happens, it's a 12+ acre lot surrounded by wetlands, hiking and biking trails ... there will never be another building built within view of our facility. We are surrounded by nature, and will be forever. So what a great opportunity to offer camping and access to all of the forests, woodlands, wetlands and trails around! And if you're up for it, come play some beach volleyball and meet new lifelong friends :)

The best camping near Hammonasset Beach State Park guide

Overview

About

Two miles of beaches for swimming, strolling, and camping await at Connecticut's largest shoreline park. Located on Long Island Sound, the state park was once a Native American settlement. The tribe farmed along the Hammonasset River, planting corn beans and squash.

Today, the park is an oasis for nature lovers. Visitors can follow the scenic footpaths through a wildlife preserve to Meigs Point Nature Center. The learning center offers programs in the summer for kids and is a favorite venue for birthday parties.

Swimmers and sunbathers stick to the sandy beaches along the western shore. This area also boasts concession stands and a boardwalk with tranquil ocean views. Large groups can reserve picnic tables and grills in advance.

Further inland, campers choose from over 550 grassy sites. Rustic cabins are rentable by the week. The sites include access to bathrooms and steamy showers. Dump stations for RVs are available for a fee.
