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.
