There Are 8 Lesser-Known Parks In Connecticut That More People Should See

If you are an outdoor enthusiast or nature lover, Connecticut is a dream come true. With more than 100 state parks and forests to be discovered in our tiny state, the opportunities for an adventure are almost endless. This year as you take to the trails, lakes, and rivers, try exploring some of the lesser-known state parks. While some of these spots tend to get overlooked, they are just as amazing as the more popular state parks.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Many of these state parks are undeveloped and have no facilities. Please remember to carry out what you bring into the park so their natural beauty continues to shine. For more information on the above parks, visit the CT DEEP website.
