In an effort to protect Connecticut's forests from the introduction and spread of destructive insect pests - in particular the emerald ash borer and Asian long-horned beetle - the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is taking the following action:
Prohibiting the bringing of firewood into state of Connecticut campgrounds and state parks from other states. As an alternative, firewood can be either purchased at the camp stores within the state campgrounds or at local retail sellers of firewood.
The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection greatly appreciates the public's assistance in helping to protect the state's natural resources and apologizes for any inconvenience this initiative may cause.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This Beach Road Site has been upgraded with 30 AMP Electric and Water. Campers with reservations made for 2011 arrival dates have will have the option of turning on these amenities. The fee is $15 per night - collected at the Park. Reservations arriving in 2012 will include the new amenity fee at the time they make their reservation.
