1 Park near Madison, Connecticut
Oct 2015 - $30.00
This park exceeded my expectations. The park is large and the sites are roomy. The park is very clean and the grass pads were really nice and level. Clean. Did I mention clean? The beaches are easily accessible on foot and the Long Island Sound was really calm and pleasant to swim in even in late September. Meg's Point nature area was a nice bike ride through the park and featured an impressive rocky beach which was really fun to climb and explore. (Or just to sit and view). Very, very pleasant.
Overall the campground is great for children and families. Wonderful vibe. Great bike riding for children and nice hiking areas. I didn't fish, but people were surf fishing from the campground and were catching large blue fish and striped bass.
The bathrooms were clean / each section of the park had it's own bathrooms which was very nice. I never waited to use the shower and the water was plenty hot. There are hook up sites available but if you have the capacity to boondock here you may choose to do so as the dry, non-hook- up sites were the best sites in the park.
In addition to being well maintained the park is run very well.
Campfires are permitted but must be elevated. You may rent a fire pit thingy for about $13... or if you have an elevated fire ring you may use your own.
There's not too many beach campgrounds on the east coast. This particular park had it's own vibe and pleasant unique feel. - Jim and Ben

Beautiful beach with lots of walking trails. Our site was out in the open (few trees). It looked like some of the other sites had a little shade.
The beach was kept clean and the water was nice. During our visit, the beach was very crowded. - Ecamper

I have camped here for the last 2 years. We bought our camper in 2013 late spring so getting a spot in a private campground was hard to come by. We were able to get one of the fewer shaded spots there. The site was clean, the facilities were always kept up. There were no fire rings/or pits you had to bring in your own. The noise level was loud during the early evening, but the park rangers enforced quiet hours. They offered movies on the weekends and some activities. The playground was a hit with the kids. We have overall enjoyed camping here. - Nk1996
