This campground is all about the lake, Lake Waramaug. Although no "waterfront" sites, most all sites have a view of the lake (many partially blocked by other campsites, though). Canoe and kayak rentals are available from a private operation on most weekends. Many people bring their own canoe or kayak. A smallish beach is great for kids. Sites are not large and maneuvering with a bigger camper can be a little challenging for most sites. Bathrooms were "state park clean", which I thought were fine. Not a lot of showers, each bathroom had one shower. Also, large sinks for washing dishes are at each bathroom building. Water faucets are available at a few spots providing fresh water, and you can fill a camper tank from them (but you can't stay hooked up). This is a good campground for families wanting a little bit "rustic" while tenting but still have some facilities (like bathrooms). Staff is polite, helpful, and outgoing. We camped at Lake Waramaug State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the gems of the Connecticut State Park system. Extremely affordable with a view of the beautiful Lake Waramaug from many sites. Litchfield County has so many great things to see and this Lake is one of them. The campground closed its concession/camp store for 2009 which is a real bummer. You used to be able to get coffee, breakfast and lunch here but no more. The beach is nice and you can walk or bike around the lake. We camped here in a tent and for $13.00 per night this is a true bargain. The sites overlooking the water are prime and book early. The only downside to this State Park are the bathrooms - they are always dirty. The security at the Park does a nice job and they strictly enforce quiet time and no more wood on the fire at 10 p.m. Our family of 5 camped here in a tent with friends and had a blast despite the rain. I would highly recommend this park to folks looking for a get away from it all back to nature camp experience without 40 foot RV's blocking the view. We camped at Lake Waramaug State Park in a Tent.
