This is one of the prettiest parks I have ever seen. The staff was great and the site was nice and large. The lake was actually warm for a nice swim. I would love to have spent more time in this park. I would stay here again. - Jerry in Baytown

Camped on July 4th weekend. Staff was very helpful and courteous. All facilities appeared clean and well maintained. The entertainment was fantastic as they hosted live bands all three nights. Great weekend, we will go back. - Thomas Beau

This was my second time to campground. This park has a large population of seasoning campers and many cabin and tent sites. There isn't a large amount of full hookup sites available for weekly or weekend visits. The bathrooms are pretty basic and could use a full makeover. The dog park has to be the worst I have even been to. It's stuck up some dirt road off the beaten path. Also, not a very big rig friendly park. On the positives, the staff is very friendly and the activities are excellent. The grounds are well kept, and beach area is a great feature. Tennis and basketball courts are excellent. Overall nice park. - E597283

We loved everything about Wolf's Den except the tight roads within the park. It was a lovely wooded campground with a kind of state park feel. The weekend was busy but during the week it was very quiet. We loved that it was very convenient to a lot of area attractions - it provided a good home base. We loved coming back in the late afternoon and taking a dip in the well maintained pool. Good cable TV. Dump station was a little inconvenient. Had to put $10 cash deposit down on gate card. We forgot to return it when we left but mailed it back to them and they mailed us a check. - RunAroundSue

NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY We have a 40' motorhome. The turns are very tight, but doable. You REALLY need to bring your A game when driving through this park. The problem that we had was the low branches. Nothing says 'welcome to our campground' like sound of woods grinding into gelcoat. Someone needs to take a chainsaw and trim the low branches. I will not be coming back. - Dave Nurse

Pool was very dirty, mold on inside edges. Prices were very high. Staff was unfriendly. Campground was mostly empty considering holiday weekend. Bathrooms were a old and not clean, even considering there campground was almost empty. Appears even seasonal campers are pulling out unhappy. - silverspoon

This is a gated park on a busy road. The roads are gravel/dirt. The sites are gravel/dirt and are mostly level. The cable at our site (40) was not working. Our neighbors had good service. Management was not helpful in resolving this issue. We had no tv problems before or after this stop. The wifi was very weak and probably should not be listed on the website. Some of the long term sites in the rear were a bit messy. - Michael47

This RV park is in a nicely maintained grassy, green setting with level, gravel pull-thru sites and gravel access roads. The hookups are very good and there is a nice swimming pool. It is convenient to I-95 and it was easy to maneuver within the park with our 43 foot fifth wheel. The WiFi was fair. The gravel access roads make for dusty conditions. This park would be a lot more desirable if the access roads were paved. There is recycling available, on site, with the exception of paper. We would likely stay here again if we were in the area. - Byron Bailey

We stayed at this park for two weeks because of a family wedding in the area. The sites are nice and large. Most of them appear to be quite level. There is lots of space between each site which is really nice but could present a problem for some because the hookups are generally in the middle of the area and quite a stretch. Bathrooms and laundry were clean. First drawback was the price. Their online rate sheet quotes $69/night, weekly rate quote is $485 (10% discount off the nightly rate). This is actually two dollars more than 69 x 7. I had to argue to get my 10% discount (it's simple math people!). I still paid more because of a holiday weekend, $900 for two weeks. At that price they expect their guests to pay for showers!!! They have the usual rules, never enforced the speed limit, but were adamant that my 70 year old mother not be allowed to park at our site but instead in the visiter's lot well away from any rv sites. The park is a gated park requiring a ten dollar deposit for a gate key. Office opens at 9 am, so we waited to leave till then to turn in our key. At 9:10 I called the after hour's cell number. The worker was rude and hung up on me. At 9:20 I called back when there were two of us waiting. She finally showed at 9:28 am. While the sites and park itself were very nice, we wouldn't stay here again because of the price and management /owners. - tlcmom

We have gone to this campground for a couple years and plan to go for at least one weekend a year. The beach has two sides, one side is deeper than the other side which was great for the kids. - microjenn79

This is right off I-95 between New Haven and New London and is situated on the Long Island Sound. Easy off and on. We camped here for one night since we were so close to home in RI. There are 160 wooded and open sites located in five sites. We were in Osprey loop and it was very nice. There were only 11 other sites taken because it was during the week. The campground had been full for the holiday weekend before. Our site was well shaded. You can ride bikes down to the beach and along the refuge - interesting. It cost us $33 because we were from out of state - expensive for dry camping. They also charge you $3.00 for a reservation fee even if you don't make a reservation. There is concession, dump station, showers, salt water fishing and swimming. No pets are allowed. There was an incident during the evening with one of the campers about ten sites away from us and the rangers, local and state police came quickly and removed the person camping. I think he had too much of something! Leaving the next morning the check in lady says nothing like that ever happens here. I was impressed how they handled the problem and how quickly it was resolved. - gsnakehill

Nice - Very Clean Park, Military,Disabled & Disabled Veteran Friendly. Staff is incredibly Friendly,Sites are very accessible and well groomed. They don't have any Water Sewer or electric hook ups, But do offer clean rest rooms, showers and Convenient Dump Station near the main entrance. Every site has picnic table and fire pit/ring, you can have a generator but if its not rate "quiet - 55 decibels or less you have to shut it off for sleepy time. Large field to enjoy games and other things, and it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to Rocky Neck Beach. Great Location, Great Rate for the amenities, they would have gotten a 10 if they had water/sewer/power. - RetMilitaryGuy

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

Very accommodating owner, easy access to grocery store and interstate. They also had a store that could meet your basic needs as well as a grill/kitchen. There were several seasonal people on site, that wasn't a drawback. They were very friendly as well as helpful. It was like a small community. It was Memorial Day weekend and there were a lot of primitive campers so the owners put us with the seasonal folks. Some of the sites were not completely level...you can make them work. The sites were also large and shady. I would stay again. - kenbarbie

Let me first share the good about this park. It is located on Gardner Lake. The lake offers good fishing, and anything else you can do on the lake. They put down new decking on their docks. Now the bad. The ownership/management only wants your money. They lack business savvy social skills and at time make you feel like you are an inconvenience. As a seasonal camper you are charged for everything. 3 grand for the season. $100 extra if you bring one kayak or $3 per day to launch from their property. The roads are dirt, making park very dusty. The bath houses are gross with spider/cob webs everywhere. Only 3 of the cabins are usable, the rest are condemned. I have not been in one, but looking in they are nasty. The snack bar food is okay but too expensive. The rec hall is filthy, the boat house is run down, the beach is a joke and run down, the sidewalks are all broken up and are a major hazard. (Law suit in the making). The paved areas of the road are also busted up pretty badly. The basket ball court is gravel and there are very limited activities. The ones on the schedule, only about 1/2 are actually done. This is mostly a seasonal place but the ownership/management does not been care about its residents which reflects in the number that have left. They do not have the passion of a normal campground owners and no pride in their facility. If your interest is a place to park and want nothing from the facility, this is a good place. If you are looking for a fun, activity based, safe, clean, and cared for place: you WON'T find it here. Connecticut State Parks offer more for your money. - trooper889

Check in was easy and that's about it. They share Gardnerlake withe the state. Swimming area is a joke, activities are poor, we were placed next to a bunch of drunk seasonals that wouldn't stop until 2:30 in the morning. I told the owners the next day but they didn't seem to care much, they talked to them, then pointed out I was the one that complained. One group apologized, that afternoon, the other did not, and it continued that night. If you want to get drunk all weekend, this place is for you. Not recommended for families, looking for relaxation from it all. - avidcamper123

Great spot (#9), right on the lake so we could fish right from our site. Staff was super friendly, key card access, great country store and beach. Would have liked full sewer hookup at the site, but I understand being on the water gravity is working against you. Lots of activities for our boys, almost like a summer camp. Highly recommend going. Bring your kayak and fishing pole! - Pshaine

Very expensive CG, especially with no sewer hook-up and marginal 30 amp electricity. Do have gray water hook-up. Always walk and check out your site before bringing a rig in. Very few are level enough or large enough for Big Rigs. Even 5th wheels need to do a lot of work to get level. Interior roads poorly maintained and become streams in heavy rain. Staff friendly and helpful, but always a struggle to get a site that works for 40' motor home. They don't allow you to reserve a specific site. Bathrooms and lake area extremely clean and neat. No cable TV, but can get local TV with antenna. Verizon cell and air card work well. Lots of activities in season. Some seasonal sites are not well maintained. Unfortunately not anything better in the area. - TravelingBaggs

Nice park with a nice lake, however, a pool is needed at this park. Park is clean and camp store is very nice. Road is tight for those of us with bigger rigs. My 32' five wheel was difficult. Owner frequently driving around and making sure everything is good. Rumor is that the place is for sale?? - radmad

Very nice park with a lot of activities for the kids. Kept very clean. Not sure if your an adult without kids this is a great park for you, but if you have kids its a lot of fun. The outback section is nice and more private then the main area. - john55

Family oriented CG with beautiful facilities. My site was right on the river because I camp in a VW Westfalia, and can use a tent site.
On site restaurant is very nice when you don't want to cook. We had torrential rain, and had to break camp with everything soaking wet.
The dance on Saturday night was too loud, and too frantic. Tone it down! - JudoJeff

Great sites and amenities. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms. What else can one ask for? Cable TV included. Will go again. - shasta63
May 2015 - $55.00
Read the previous reviews and can see their point, the bathrooms were terrible. It's a country bumpkin place no doubt. Yet, if you're looking for some quiet time on a lake or quiet country roads the this will do. I'd not tent here but if you are self contained i.e. RV and don't mind using your own facilities then this is a good place.
It's quiet and right on the lake, good place for small kids to catch Sunfish and enjoy the lake, great views of the country and if you cycle then Route 207 is a good route, decent shoulders and challenging hills. Again, if you use your own facilities this is a good place, if you need to use theirs don't come here. - koeka

The Camp Store is an old dingy cement block building with dilapidated furniture, poor game room, and lacks amenities. The owner charges $20 for gate key which they said would be refunded when I checked out. Also charges extra for cable hook up. Owner refused to return gate fee, after discovering a math error. Owner needs every dollar even though I paid for the site in full when I checked in. The site I stayed was muddy with other nearby sites harboring debris attracting insects. This place is not worth staying. The only good things were the lake and leaving this tired run down place! - shasta63

It is a dated campground. Went there with a group for the holiday weekend. This was recommend by one our friends who we camp with, they like the lake. Many trees need trimming, one party in our group had to trim branches before they could get into their site. Payed extra for cable, it was not good. My 30 amp service kept going off when using the AC. The owner said he has been changing out the breakers as they go, how about fixing them before they don't work properly. Many improvements needed. One of the worst places I've stayed at. The only up side was I was with several of my camping families. - radmad

I have mixed feelings about this place. It's pretty much the only game in town and was okay-not great, not horrible-just okay. It has all the fun things..swimming pond, playground, shuffleboard, etc., but it has a little bit of a crowded "trailer park" look in parts of it. Some of the sites are shaded, woodsy, and charming, while there is a section that's out in the open that just seems like campers are everywhere. Our 50 amp, FHU, back-in site was partially shaded and on the end, so we had a nice yard on one side. The site on the other side was fairly close as were most of the sites. We were easily leveled, but had to re-level after a few days. The WiFi was really good. Cable had limited channels, but still plenty to have decent choices. Had good Verizon service. The place was clean. Our GPS wouldn't take Clinton CT. They have blue directional camper signs once off I-95. Follow those signs. They need one of two more indicating you're on the right track. At one point, we thought we were lost. If ever in the area, we would stay again. - Gayle E.

The toilets and showers were quite old. We only saw two of each. The campground is primarily a residential summer camp. There was a fishing pond. When one drives in the gate the place presents a really well kept look, so the poor quality of the showers and toilets was surprising. There is quite a long winding road to get to this place, but we saw 40's doing it. - suerover

There isn't much to choose from as far as campgrounds go in Connecticut. This park is close to the ocean but you would have to drive there. There are a lot of seasonal campers here but their sites are well kept. Garbage goes in one big dumpster at the front of the camp. You have to toss it in. When we got here it was mounded up 8 ft high. There is a pool. They allow people who are not camping here to pay to get in the park to use the pond. The sight we were in was supposed to be satellite friendly wide open with nothing around us. That was true our sight had no trees but it is heavily wooded in front of our site & in back. We could not get satellite. They do have cable & they do have WiFi. However we had trouble getting cell service in our RV. Sometimes we had to try a few times & it would finally come up or we had to move to the front of our unit. This was certainly not something we expected in CT. The laundry had four dryers, two that were out of order & four washers. The water pressure was poor. We filled our tank & ran off our pump. - Connie's Co-Owner
