Campgrounds with reasonable rates operate at 13 state parks and state forests, mostly in the Litchfield and Mystic regions. The state Department of Environmental Protection offers information about camping on its website. Most state park campgrounds are open from mid-spring through Labor Day weekend, with a few staying open until the end of September or Columbus Day.
In addition, Connecticut has several private campgrounds. Campgrounds offer a wide variety of amenities in terms of bathrooms, showers, dumping and hookups. Be sure to contact individual campgrounds for detailed information.
