Ten great places to camp in New England
For those of you who think the beauty of Connecticut is nestled on the shores of Long Island Sound or on the banks of the Connecticut River (the town of Essex comes to mind), we bring you Lake Waramaug. Tucked away in the Litchfield Hills, surrounded by small, rounded peaks, this is one of the most cherished campgrounds in the state. The 77 sites are located in a forest near the waters of this majestic lake. Go swimming at the beach, fish for largemouth and smallmouth bass, or grab the canoe in the early morning hours for a quiet paddle before the kids are up. Sites are $26 a night for state residents, $36 for nonresidents.
