Travelers looking for camping inspiration close to home this season due to the coronavirus pandemic have excellent options across New England, according to Conde Nast Traveler.
The publication recently released a list of best camping spots in every state, sticking with public lands that are bookable through the national or state parks system.
“[T]his summer, when it seems like we’re all heading camping — and we mean everyone — many of us are limited to staying closer to home, and in need of a little more domestic travel inspiration,” the publication wrote.
Ahead are the publication’s picks for New England and what editors had to say about each place. (Please note: Massachusetts entry Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area is not allowing camping during the 2020 season due to the global health crisis. The rest of the publication’s picks are open this season.)
Connecticut: Rocky Neck State Park
“It’s true — swimming in the Long Island Sound, fishing for saltwater bass, and hiking among marshland waterfowl can all be found less than an hour drive from New Haven. After a day spent lounging on white sand beaches, stargaze right from your tent, while serenaded by the pops and crackles of the campfire.”
