Connecticut RV Parks: The RV parks in Connecticut You Want to Visit!
RV parks in Connecticut are less numerous than they are in many other states. I think the relative scarcity of Connecticut RV parks may indicate that the RV lifestyle is not as popular here as it is in some other parts of the country.
My wife and I passed through Connecticut about midway on a 30,000-mile road trip. We had begun our journey the year before in the Pacific Northwest, in search of America and of ourselves, and eventually it brought us to Connecticut by a circuitous route. The trip is recounted in my book, In Search of America’s Heartbeat: Twelve Months on the Road.
An attractive Connecticut RV park that we found was:
Aces High RV Park in East Lyme. It provided gravel interior roads, 64 large gravel sites for travelers, 50 of them pull-throughs and all with full hookups, wireless Internet access, cable TV, laundry room, LP gas, fishing pond, swimming area, recreation hall and planned activities.
The park was convenient to the Foxwoods Resort and Casino, run by the Pequot Indian Tribe, which hosts more than 40,000 guests a day.
Here’s an excerpt from my book, which describes the resort as looming out of the Connecticut woods “like a volcanic peak.”
“We’re unprepared for this place. It’s overwhelming. It calls itself the largest resort casino in the world, which probably isn’t much of a stretch; more than 315,000 square feet of gambling in a complex that covers 4.7 million square feet.
“We’ve seen nothing like it this side of Vegas. The place consists of three hotels with more than 1,400 guest rooms and suites, three swimming pools, more than 350 gaming tables, some 6,400 slot machines, 25 conference rooms, 24 restaurants.
“And the whole thing grew out of 18 pigs.”
If you’re considering exploring any Connecticut RV parks, I hope you’ve found these observations helpful. If you know of any other RV parks in Connecticut that I should add to this list, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
