Campgrounds of Mystic Connecticut have rustic charm

Campgrounds with very reasonable rates operate at 13 state parks and state forests, and many of them are in the Mystic region of eastern Connecticut. The state Department of Environmental Protection offers plenty of information on its website about camping. In addition, Mystic has a privately owned campground. Campgrounds in CT may be near the beach, and they offer a wide variety of amenities in terms of bathrooms, showers, dumping and hookups. Also, accessibility to nearby fishing, hunting and other outdoor sports varies widely. Be sure to contact individual campgrounds for detailed information.
