This Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Campground In All Of Connecticut

On the eastern shore of the Housatonic River is a 605-acre park that was once inhabited by the Pootatuck Indians. Early settlers traded one kettle for the ability to hunt and fish on the land, which is how it came to be known as Kettletown State Park. The park, which includes Lake Zoar, is home to 56 campsites in both open and wooded settings. Ripe with natural beauty, it’s a picture perfect place to pitch a tent!
