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.
One vehicle per site limit. Parking available for second vehicle in visitor lot.

Campers must bring their own equipment for recreational activities (horse shoes, swimming tubes, sport equipment, etc). Also, we do not provide each campsite with a grate/grill. Campers need to bring their own.

Getting There:

Take Exit 83 off I-395. Go left, and follow Rte. 97 through Baltic. The campground is 2 miles north on the left, just past Salt Rock Road.
