Camping near the coast is a unique experience that adds a new element of fun to a traditional camping trip. Check out six awesome coastal campgrounds you’ll want to add to your list of must-visit camping destinations.
For such a diminutive state, Connecticut packs in plenty of diversity, from an Ivy League school to historic harbor towns and artist communities. Northeast Connecticut is known as the Quiet Corner for its small towns and dairy farms, a respite from the bustling Washington-to-Boston corridor. For a fun family vacation, many head to the shores of Long Island Sound where Connecticut campgrounds are near beaches, parks and fishing villages. Visit Stonington Borough, where colonial sea captains’ homes still sit above the harbor, then head to the nearby Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea for a re-creation of a 19th-century maritime village. Enjoy all of Connecticut's attractions from your RV, cabin or tent.
