Just an FYI to anyone looking to camp in Connecticut this year. All state park rates doubled on October 1, 2009 from $11.00 to $22.00 per night. For travelers consideration, there are privately owned campgrounds near every state park (within 5 miles) that for a few dollars more per night you can have full hook ups instead of boondocking. I offer this information to everyone as a slap in the face to the state. Our governor is looking to have travelers pay for our budget deficit by camping one night at a time. It was brought to the state governments attention that state parks will no longer draw the full capacity crowds that they did considering the ammenities that can be found down the road. Before I get asked, I DO NOT own, work for, or have any affiliation with any campground in the state. I am a camper and state resident that is outraged at our governments attempt to raise revenue while creating more of a hardship to those that already are struggling.
