  • Very nice lakeside camping w/excellent views. Great fishing for trout upstream of campsite. Did not fish lake. Multiple access points to Connecticut river & the 4 lakes. Saw Moose cow w/ 2 young ones
  • I love this campground! It's it so clean and well kept up. The park staff are very nice, they took the time to tell everyone the we were getting a server storm with very heavy winds. I would definitely recommend this place and I plan on coming back before the summer is over 😊
