This Tipi Campground In Connecticut Is A One-Of-A-Kind Overnight Adventure
Soon, snow will melt and winter will be over. Now is the best time to start making plans for the warmer weather. If you love the outdoors, there are quite a few campgrounds in Connecticut that are great for a family getaway, but there is only one where you can stay overnight in a tipi. Unique accommodations are only one of the things that Bear Creek Campground has to offer its guests.
Bear Creek Campground is located in Bristol right next to Lake Compounce Amusement Park. It is open from May 1st through October 31st.
Spend the night in a tipi with all the modern conveniences you will need. The structure has four cots for sleeping, but you can request an additional cot if you need one.
The tipis also have electricity hook up, mini fridge, fire pit, picnic table, and access to the on site showers and toilets. These aren't primitive by any stretch.
Can you imagine what it would be like to sleep under the stars in this cozy little tipi?
If a tipi isn't your thing, the campground also has one and two bedroom cabins available to rent. These have a kitchen, bathroom, beds, and even wifi and cable. Talk about glamping!
The cub hut is another rental option at Bear Creek Campground. The huts have beds, mini fridge, and cable. And the chairs and fire pit outside are a great spot for marshmallow toasting.
If you like a more traditional style of camping, you can pitch a tent or hook up an RV.
The campground also has a general store, playground, and basketball courts. The kids will find craft activities and movie nights to entertain them.
Probably the biggest draw to this campground is its proximity to Lake Compounce! With the world's oldest continuously operating amusement park in the United States right next door, how could you go wrong?
The campground even provides a free tram back and forth to the amusement park. Ride roller coasters and splash in the water park to your heart's content before returning back to camp.
Discounted tickets for Lake Compounce are available to all campers. You can purchase them at the campground general store.
