We wanted a gentle camping experience with clean bathrooms, a family oriented atmosphere and not too far away from home. We chose to go to Hammonassett Beach State Park in Connecticut. It has a large, well organized camp site only an hour away, perfect for bike riding and surrounded by decent restaurants, grocery stores and Starbucks...need I say more.
We all thought this would be a great summer activity for our children. Three days of play time and the freedom to ride their bikes and scooters, play board games and do what kids do with minimal parent interference. We wanted them to feel free.
