The Small Town Connecticut Park, Machimoodus State Park, Is A Gorgeous Natural Oasis

Wandering through nature is one of the best ways to experience Connecticut and a lot of that nature is within our state parks. Unbeknown to most, Machimoodus State Park is a little slice of nature hiding in Moodus Village, in East Haddam. This park is truly a natural oasis with beautiful trails, scenic vistas, and views of the Salmon River across 300 acres of natural beauty. Whether you want to take a hike, or simply find peace in the wilderness, Machimoodus State Park is a hidden gem that needs to be seen.

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:
