The best camping near Lake Waramaug State Park guide

Overview

About

If there was a beauty pageant for all the lakes in Connecticut, Lake Waramaug wins, hands down. It鈥檚 not even a competition. Scenically, Lake Waramaug State Park is unrivaled. Being caught without a camera here is like showing up to potluck without a dish. You just don鈥檛 do it.

When the fall foliage starts to peak, whoa. The sight of the vivid colors reflected in the unrippled lake surface is more beautiful than anything you鈥檝e ever seen. Don鈥檛 let your significant other hear you say that, though. If you listen closely, you can hear the clicking shutters of a thousand photographers.
