The One Place In Connecticut That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

Turns out there’s a world of fantasy, right here in Connecticut. This state park is rumored to have once been inhabited by Satan himself, but maybe it was actually Sauron. You don’t have to be a hobbit to explore this patch of land, so feel free to check out Devil’s Hopyard all year long!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Devil’s Hopyard is located at 366 Hopyard Road, East Haddam, CT 06423. You can find more information and plan your visit here. If you’ve already traveled to this Middle Earth, tell us about it in the comments!
